Somatic Psychotherapy and EMDR in California

Transformative Healing and Growth

Empowering You Through Somatic Therapy

Welcome! I offer empathic, compassionate, and effective individual and group online therapy for residents of California and online coaching for those residing elsewhere. I welcome and value diversity, including all races, sexualities, genders, body sizes, and abilities. My goal is for you to feel support, encouragement, and guidance as you navigate life’s many transitions and challenges while I help you achieve the results you’re longing to see. 

Can you relate to one of the following:

  • You’re resourceful, intelligent, and talented, yet you’re noticing a desire for more happiness, confidence and a sense of purpose in your day-to-day life. 
  • You’ve been striving to quiet and calm challenging or overwhelming thoughts, sensations, feelings, and emotions.
  • You struggle to feel relatively safe or present.
  • You have a sense or gut feeling that something is off.

If so, listen to your body and emotions; they’re telling you something. I can help.

Journeys of Transformation

Insightful Journey


…I am very much able to recognize what I am experiencing before it overtakes my whole being. I also learned some very important characteristics about myself and, more importantly, how they were affecting my relationships. You are thoughtful and were able to challenge my thinking which helped me grow.

Heartfelt Gratitude


Continued Transformation


I think about what I have learned in your sessions all of the time. I have done very well incorporating orienting and grounding in everyday life and feel much more in control and calm…. Our sessions really meant a lot to me, and I continue to practice what I have learned. Thank you for having such a great impact on me!!
