For over 20 years, I have pursued knowledge, freedom and a deeper understanding of myself. I am a seeker. This has come through a variety of educational, personal and collective experiences, including: therapy, expressive and visual arts, yoga philosophy and practice, family and motherhood. I am here and dedicated to my own liberation and collective transformation.
I have in these processes, I have held both a designated leader role (private practice therapist, group facilitator, stage performer and director, parent educator, mother) and also the one being guided (therapy client, daughter, spiritual seeker, group member, student). In both of these types of engagement, I have found immense value in cultivating curiosity; toward both my internal experience and that of the external, someone else or collective.
I highly value all relationships in my life, including my husband, my daughters, friends, family and clients; I also deeply tend my relationships with the earth, plants, and the Divine. I find the most healing experiences of my life happen when I feel witnessed, connected and curious about what is happening.
My dharma, my deepest desire, is to create these types of transformative spaces for myself and others.
