I am a self specialist—I help individuals and couples develop a strong foundation of self so that they can negotiate life's challenges using holistic psychotherapy practices.

As a holistic therapist and shamanic practitioner, I view problems as blessings pointing us in the direction of wellness. Whatever feels “off” in your life – depression, unhealthy relationships, dead-end careers, grief, loneliness, low self-esteem – is a symptom of a larger problem: an unbalanced and under-appreciated self. Using life's challenges as a guide, we work to build the foundation of self you need in order to live an enriching and fully human life. A few of my modalities include body- and breathwork, inner child work, psychedelic experience integration, and shamanic practices, based on your need and interest.

I hold a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy, an MFA in Creative Writing, certifications in Transformational Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy. My shamanic training is from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I have a long career in the arts—writing/acting—which informs my work with other creatives. My podcast is available at selftalkpodcast.com.

I bring to my therapy practice the vision of unity through individuality. The stronger our foundation of self, the better we can contribute to the world around us. •-• Worried about getting locked into long-term therapy? Book a single session. We'll take it from there.
