Welcome, I’m so glad you found me.

I show up in this work with an authentic open heart. I will guide you in deep listening, trusting that the information we uncover is the key to helping you become your best self. I will kindly challenge you to challenge yourself and ask the {sometimes/often difficult} questions that help facilitate change. I will offer you quiet refuge; a place to genuinely show up and share in your joys, successes, challenges and fears. And I will be here to remind you that you can and will flourish. Because I believe it.  

At the heart of my approach is the understanding that in order to change, we need to do more than just talking. We often benefit from including other avenues to fully address our concerns and to resolve pain and trauma. I provide space to share the stories that want to be told while also incorporating ways to more mindfully connect to our body through somatic experiencing, movement, and yoga.

I will ask you to courageously include your whole self in this work – your mental, emotional, and physical landscapes. I will just as much honor your pace, needs, fears and questions. The therapeutic journey is profound. And believe it or not, it can also be fun!

Years of practicing yoga, intense trauma specific trainings and participation in my own healing, has taught me this: when we stop searching outside of ourselves and go inward, we are able to heal in radical ways. We often find we are more capable and adept at experiencing pain and joy without feeling disrupted by them. Therefore we are able to connect to our power, finding a greater amount of peace, confidence, and love.

I look forward to supporting you. Reach out to schedule an initial session.

A Little More About Me

I continue to explore, learn and connect to being a student of life. I really enjoy travel, creativity and vitality in my personal yoga practice, daily meditation, connecting to nature and cooking. I am a mother to one beautiful boy, which has been the most compelling and distinct transformation of my life. Prior to settling into my home in Asheville, NC I worked in the fast paced world of Advertising in NYC. I found refuge here after learning how to be okay in discomfort, connect to my intuition and eventually connect to my body, my whole self.

More just for fun facts: 

I volunteered outside of Buenos Aires, Argentina at a farm with a community of individuals that contributed towards sustainable living. We participated in dedicated practices of yoga, meditation and sound therapy which was the beginning of my commitment to personal daily introspective practices. I went on a solo backpacking journey to South America which in many ways tested my courage and trust. I explored the magic of the Moai statues on Easter Island in sunlight and moonlight. Studied yoga and meditation in Costa Rica. Got lost {and eventually found my way back} in Santiago, Chile. Attended a 10-day Silent Meditation retreat in complete silence. And I continue to focus on personal growth through yoga, meditation, and somatic therapy, all an invaluable force in supporting myself in this work as a therapist.
