Description

I am an intuitive, holistic, expressive arts-based psychotherapist who integrates ancestral healing arts, spiritual practice and somatic awareness with clinical interventions to address depression, anxiety, individual and generational trauma, isolation, grief, self regulation and self-esteem.

There are times when you may find yourself standing on the outside, looking in, and no longer able to see yourself in the world you created…

You may struggle with feelings of unworthiness, isolation, and disconnection from the life you’ve built, relationships you’ve chosen, or are carrying grief from the past or recent present that you cannot seem to let go of. Or maybe you are looking for support and grounded ways to integrate the new psychic awareness or spiritual transformation you are experiencing?

My clients are people who are searching for their authentic voice, yearn to reconnect to their intuition and ancestral wisdom, and create a sense of home in their bodies and lives. I offer a space to cultivate true belonging and discernment with creative tools to help build a bridge between the life you have and the life you are dreaming of.

My approach is based in Jungian psychology with a focus on the subconscious and the symbolic; expressive arts therapy which combines talk therapy with imagery, art making, dreamwork, movement and sound to help communicate what exists beyond words; attachment theory which explores early childhood relationships and emotionally focused therapy which helps to build intimacy and vulnerability between partners. I view healing through a collective lens and am involved in community-based healing arts practices that focus on transformation within individuals and groups in relation to each other, the animal world and the earth.

I specialize in working with women and femme-identified people, first generation, immigrant and refugee communities, sex positive and polyamorous relationships, BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and creatives. I acknowledge how systemic oppression and violence affects these communities and hold a loving container for your experience.

Together we will explore the unconscious lands of your feelings and choices, examine the invisible patterns that have influenced your life, while using the creative tools of imagery, dreamwork, ritual, somatics, symbolism and storytelling to cultivate connection, self awareness and empowerment, choose your next steps with clarity and live your life with freedom.

I offer in person sessions in downtown Oakland and online appointments throughout California at a sliding scale of $180-$225 per session.
