What I do
As an independent counselor and coach, I help my clients to work through a range of challenges they face. My private practice, based in Oakland, CA, has focuses in the following:
identity issues and diverse forms of "coming out"
discovering genuine purpose and authenticity
energy imbalances and chronic fatigue
feeling "stuck" and life transitions
depression and anxiety
isolation, alienation, disconnection and shame
trauma and addictive cycles
Clients who work with me report feeling:
access to subtle energy and different energetic states
more in touch with their intuition and inner feelings
a deeper sense of purpose and connection
resolution of physical and psychological pain
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. I look forward to working with you.
Since 2005, I have accumulated over a decade of experience in teaching and facilitating deep transformation. I hold a master's degree in East-West Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies, and have received training in 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.
