DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

Welcome to my mindfulness-based Buddhist psychotherapy practice.
I've helped individuals and couples meet extremely difficult life transitions with self-compassion and kindness and transform their lives through using mindfulness-based and somatic therapies. This sacred soul work will nurture a heart-centered, genuine connection with you. I look forward to beginning our journey together.
