I spent many years as a massage therapist and yoga instructor before returning to academia and graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from UCLA and a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. I am a Neuroaffective Touch practitioner, a somatic therapy that includes touch and somatic awareness developed by Dr. Aline LaPierre.  I am also a Somatic Experiencing practitioner, a type of trauma therapy developed by Peter Levine, PhD. Additionally, I studied touch therapy skills with Kathy L. Kain who has practiced and taught bodywork and trauma recovery skills for over 30 years. My office is located in El Sereno Los Angeles, CA. 

Some benefits of working somatically are:

  • Living more fully in the present moment
  • An ability to regulate emotions and self-soothe
  • Stable and balanced sense of mood
  • Restful sleeping
  • Increased resiliency
  • Greater capacity for intimacy and bonding 
  • Improved interpersonal skills 
  • Endocrine regulation
  • Decrease in PMS symptoms 
  • Improved digestion
  • Increased motivation and drive
  • Greater clarity and focus

I've included several ways to contact me. Please send an email, or simply fill out the form on this page. I'm looking forward to speaking with you.
