I am originally from the mid-west, gratefully at home on the west coast since 2000.

Working as personal fitness instructor for the past 14 years paved the way to becoming a coach and therapist. However on a deeper level it was my own struggles with intimacy, body-image and addiction that called me to a path of healing and service.

My mental health training includes a Masters degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern California. I currently work in a private practice as a psychotherapist as well as seeing clients at Passages Malibu Addiction Treatment Center.

I have experience treating children, adolescents, adults and couples. My style is interactive and dynamic. I love to work with people who are motivated and willing to try.

I specialize in making the transcendent practical, accessible and applicable helping people find a deeper sense of well-being and purpose in their lives.

A genuine curiosity about the world and fascination with the human condition propels my own learning everyday. We are remarkable beings, aren’t we?! Our capacity to evolve, adapt, learn and heal endlessly inspires me… I’d love to explore some of that potential with you.
