I’ve been providing coaching, counseling and somatic healing with SoulCentric Breathwork for over fifteen years, and expressive, intuitive SoulCentric Painting for nearly a decade, in private practice in Sebastopol, Sonoma County, California and San Francisco Bay Area, before moving to Colorado.
My coaching repertoire incorporates additional approaches such as Relational-Cultural Theory, person-centered, brief psychodynamic, strengths-based, solutions-focused, family therapy, CBT, compassion and acceptance, Imaginal process chair work, Jungian/Taylor dream work, expressive art, play therapy, sandtray, and more.
I have experience working with all ages across the life span, from 7 yrs old and up, including teens, young adults, middle-aged and older adults, family therapy and couples.
I’m responsive to each individual’s unique path and journey, rather than formulaic approaches. Life is highly personal and I respect your choices in a non-judgmental, safe space to look at all aspects you wish to bring to the table for understanding or transformation.

SoulCentric Breathwork Packages:
Packages of 10 sessions 10% off, plus two 15 minute get-unstuck and emotional support phone calls, and up to 5 texts for quick help to re-align are included.
For breathwork, we prefer to do a minimum series of ten sessions, as somatic work requires repetition. Just as the blocks have been reinforced and ingrained in the body over the years, we want to support the body to unwind and create new neural pathways for a different way of being and feeling, and this takes time for our biology to integrate and change. The package of 10 provides a framework of commitment, as sometimes we can bounce up against things that are difficult, and this supports us to face them. Due to somatic nature of breathwork, it is recommended to complete your package within six months.
What can I expect in a session?
We check in to find out what is bothering you or not feeling right, what is going really well, what you would like to transform, or what you might want some more clarity around. I listen to what is present for you, and offer questions that help you dig deeper into yourself, and reflections. If you are open to creative expression or working with props or the sandtray, this is welcome in our sessions, as is sharing art you have done on your own. We work on the goals that are important to you with this client-centered work.

I am presently located on the Western Slope of Colorado, offering teletherapy at this time. For those who are less stable with acute mental health concerns, I recommend you see a therapist closer to you who can connect you with local resources. For Colorado residents, you may access my services through the clinic Cedar Circle Counseling.
