- Psychotherapy & Counseling Services:
ONLINE SERVICES (Telehealth) AVAILABLE TO THOSE RESIDING IN CALIFORNIA.
As a California Licensed Professional of the Healing Arts (LPHA), or psychotherapist (LMFT #103066), I can help you in many ways. My doctoral training was in clinical somatic psychology which taught me the importance of the body-mind relationship when it comes to healing and wellbeing. I primarily serve adult women in addressing life’s BIG transitions, as well as developing spirituality and mindfulness practices, moving beyond anxiety, trauma, and grief/loss, managing ADHD, thriving during and after cancer, and even enhancing creativity. I love supporting anyone along their journey toward an embodied, soulful life! True self-care is very important to me – I’m all about 360 degrees of wellness (mind, body, emotions and spirit)! Allow me to help you develop your own unique practice.
I’ve been described as having a warm, relational approach with a holistic, eclectic therapeutic style. I combine traditional talk therapy & evidenced-based therapies (such as CBT) along with eco-therapy, art, dreamwork, hypnotherapy/guided imagery, meditation, and somatic awareness, in ways that are appropriate and most comfortable for you. Come experience positive results!

In addition, as an award-winning artist and published author, I’m excited to offer coaching for writers, artists (and all creative types) on many levels. Below you will find special additions to my therapy and counseling services.
- Guided Meditation/Yoga Nidra:
Yoga nidra is a sleep-based guided meditation offering effortless disengagement from over-thinking or anxious mental states where we enter a space between waking and sleeping. This is the most relaxing and easiest form of meditation you will find! In a yoga nidra session, body, breath, and awareness techniques are used to facilitate deep relaxation. What’s great is that yoga nidra allows the body to deeply restore itself, balancing excess stress and preventing stress-related disease at the root. On Wednesdays, I offer FREE gentle yoga and guided meditation sessions online to those impacted by chronic illness. Contact me using the form below to get the latest schedule. If you prefer to incorporate yoga nidra into counseling or therapy services, I can customize them just for you. Yoga nidra is wonderful self-care! See for yourself – Enjoy the two free guided meditations below (they are 30-50 minutes each):
- Conscious Dreamwork:
Become more conscious of your dreams and of your life! Dreams are like a mirror, reflecting our inner world. Dreams are the language of the soul. Through conscious dreamwork you can increase your awareness in nocturnal dream states, waking dream states (hypnosis, trance, visions and journeys), and the day-to-day waking state.
Take the driver’s seat in your own life! Conscious dreamwork is far more than dream theory education and interpretation. Here, we enter the Imaginal Realm, opening doors for enhanced creativity, lucidity, spiritual development, deeper self-knowledge, processing grief/loss and continuing relationships with deceased loved ones.

In addition, creative outlets are endless; Dream plots and trance imagery are inspirations for poetry, story-telling, theater, art and so much more.

The possibilities are endless. Furthermore, when we know we are dreaming while we are dreaming, that is, dreaming lucidly, new opportunities arise!
