What I do
I help clients get back on their soul's journey. As a Qi-based counselor, I help my clients engage their deeper callings, or soul's work, in order to cross the threshold into the lives they were meant to lead.
My private counseling practice, based in Oakland as well as online, helps clients around a range of issues, including:
- sex and relationship work
- identity issues and diverse forms of "coming out"
- discovering genuine purpose and authenticity
- energy (Qi) imbalances and chronic fatigue
- feeling "stuck" and life transitions
- depression and anxiety
- isolation, alienation, disconnection and shame
- trauma and addictive cycles
- spiritual emergence
- holistic and soulful living
Clients who work with me report feeling:
- physically healthier
- access to subtle energy and different energetic states
- more in touch with their intuition and inner feelings
- a deeper sense of purpose and connection
- more clarity about what is most important to them
- a greater sense of self-respect, compassion, and self-love
- increased capacity to make important changes in their lives
Helping others is my genuine passion and gives me so much warmth and gratitude for the work that I do. So please give yourself as well as me a gift by getting in touch to work together.
Through an integration of psychological, relational, and embodied inquiry, we can rehabilitate our relationship with the mystery at the center of our being, and in doing so awaken our self-acceptance and rediscover what really matters in life. By tapping into this deep well of insight, love, and understanding, we can bring ourselves back into the stream of the life worth living, and move forward in a new way with a deep sense of connection and purpose.
My own initiation onto my soul's journey came when I was 16, in the support of an initiatory container in the wilderness. This launched me on my own journey of helping others, and since 2005, I have accumulated over a decade of experience in teaching and facilitating deep transformation. I hold an master's degree in East-West Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies, and have received training in a diverse healing methodologies, including Hakomi and ProcessWork. I am a Ren Xue practitioner and therapist, having taught Qigong classes for a number of years and provided energy healing services to many. Finally, my diverse, hands-on experiences with spiritual and shamanic traditions from around the world gives me an authentic and rooted place of personal experience from which I offer my services.
I work from a genuine and open place that recognizes my own growth process alongside your own. I never see myself as above or better than you, even as I am clear in the tools and gifts I have to share. I bring my real experience into the room, and see this work as people helping people. This is the real essence of life, and this type of healing always comes back around. There is nothing better than being part of the great chain of growing, learning, and discovery that as human beings we get to be.
