Some of the most challenging experiences in one's life, those experiences that make one nauseous, that make one contract and tense up, that change one's world completely, can also be the biggest gifts in one's life. While I believe this wholeheartedly now, if someone had told me this when I was going through my own challenge, I would have thought they had a screw loose. In fact, I might have been quite annoyed with anyone insinuating that such a painful experience could bring about something good. But, it did... and I'm grateful.
Thus began a journey that would teach me the importance of deep introspection... deep listening. For me, it was only when I began to listen deeply to what is happening inside of me, could I then dance more skillfully and joyfully with life and all my experiences. This path has taught me the importance of community, mindfulness, play, emotions, mind/body integration, spiritual practice and the importance of skillfully expressing what is inside of me that yearns to come forth.
I have a degree in psychology from UCLA, training in somatic trauma therapy through the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute and also work as a psychiatric nurse.
I'm here to help... Call me.
