My approach is warm, personable, and nonjudgmental.


I earned my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2006. Prior to this I worked as a Fitness Trainer and gym owner in NYC where I published numerous articles in the fields of Health & Fitness. My background in fitness and bodywork provides tools to help ground with yoga, za-zen meditation, prana breath work, tai chi, as well as movement therapies.
