I work with couples and individuals to help you learn more about yourself, what is really true for you, and how to become more the person – and the person-in-relationship – that fulfills that truth.
My areas of expertise include gender identity, body image, individual and cultural trauma, relationship transitions, chronic pain, and depression and anxiety.
I am also a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) and Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT).
“Once you start approaching your body with curiosity rather than with fear, everything shifts.” — Bessel van der Kolk, MD
“The shadow also, however, can contain the divine, the luscious, beautiful, and powerful aspects of personhood. For women especially, the shadow almost always contains very fine aspects of being that are forbidden or given little support by her culture. At the bottom of the well in the psyches of too many women lies the visionary creator, the astute truth-teller, the far-seer, the one who can speak well of herself without cringing, who works to perfect her craft. The positive impulses in shadow for women in our culture most often revolve around permission for the creation of a handmade life.” — Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD
“To fulfill itself, knowledge must find expression in the body. More than that, it must transmute the body by the power of its truth. And it is truth, not knowledge, that is replete with power. The power associated with knowledge is manipulative power, such as political leverage or overpowering influence. The power inherent in truth, however, is transformative in the deepest sense. It is capable of remaking the person in the light of truth.” — Georg Feuerstein, on Yoga Sutra 1.48, ऋतम्भरा तत्र प्रज्ञा॥४८॥, ṛtam bharā tatra prajñā
