Counseling in the East Bay

 

I feel privileged to be able to do this work. Witnessing my clients' journeys gives me great joy. 

I have worked with adults, children, and families in community mental health and private practice in both English and Spanish. I am a practitioner of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which I use in my work with trauma, using mindful awareness to heal from the effects of trauma. I am also trained in EMDR, a technique I use to work with trauma, phobias, as well as depression and anxiety. I received my masters degree in Somatic Psychotherapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Some of my interests are:

  • gender and sexuality
  • queerness
  • spirituality
  • relationship with nature
  • social justice
  • activism
  • children and parenting
