As a certified bioenergetic therapist I believe strongly in the connection between our mind, body, and emotions and that all three need attending to in order to facilitate healing and create lasting change. I believe growth and change occur best within the safety of an authentic relationship where there is mutual trust and respect. As a bioenergetic therapist I am committed to providing high quality professional care in a safe, confidential and respectful environment where new ways of relating and being in the world can be explored and experienced leading to a person living a more authentic life. My goal is to help people feel more alive and experience more pleasure, joy and love in their lives.
People seek out therapy for a number of different reasons. Some people come because they are in emotional or physical pain. Some may have the sense that experiences from the past still effect them and influence their behavior, limiting their quality of life. Others come to address problems they are having in their relationships or to enhance the pleasures they are deriving from their relationships.
Many people seek out bioenergetic therapy because they have experienced the benefits and limitations of traditional talk therapies and feel there is still something more in themselves that needs attention. Working with the body in psychotherapy helps draw out an inner knowledge that no amount of reading or talking could ever do. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, it should be a life enhancing experience.
Some additional information about me is that I am also a certified IMAGO relationship therapist, yoga teacher and certified Instinctive Meditation teacher. In addition to being on the faculty of the San Diego Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis I am on the International Faculty, and Board of Trustees for the International Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis.

I am a published author and have been a keynote speaker and presented workshops at local, national and international conferences.
