Announcement icon Therapy sessions are now entirely virtual. We meet by phone or online via Zoom. Spring 2021: In-person sessions begin for shamanic work.
As a holistic therapist and shamanic practitioner, I view problems as blessings pointing us in the direction of wellness. Whatever feels “off” in your life - depression, unhealthy relationships, dead-end careers, grief, loneliness, low self-esteem - is a symptom of a larger problem: an unbalanced and under-appreciated self. Using life's challenges as a guide, we work to build the foundation of self you need in order to live an enriching and fully human life. A few of my modalities include body- and breathwork, inner child work, psychedelic experience integration, and shamanic practices, based on your need and interest.
I hold an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy, an MFA in Creative Writing, and certifications in Transformational Life Coaching and Clinical Hypnotherapy. My shamanic training is from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. I have a long career in the arts—writing/acting—which informs my work with other creatives. My podcast is available at selftalkpodcast.com.
I bring to my therapy practice the vision of unity through individuality. The stronger our foundation of self, the better we can contribute to the world around us. Contact me for a free phone consultation.

Introduction to Shamanic Journeying

Shamanic journeying is a deeply personal spiritual practice using drumming to move deep into a meditative state. Within this state, you communicate with compassionate helping spirits in non-ordinary reality for the purpose of healing and guidance. In this workshop, you will discover how to find and work with your helping spirit toward healing, and how to incorporate shamanic journeying into my existing spiritual practice. No experience required. Please wear comfortable clothing, and bring the following items: An eye covering (bandana or securable eye pillow), Any blankets or pillows you require (some yoga blankets/mats will be provided), A pen and notebook
