My Practice & Philosophy

In 1991, at the age of 19, I began my path of service working with elders as a home health aide. Seven years later, after training at numerous agencies serving some of the most vulnerable populations, I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work. Traversing the landscape of the Southwest, New England and the Midwest, my practice has led me on an epic journey into the heart of community.  

I have learned from 5 to 105 year old clients in substance abuse treatment centers, hospitals, schools and universities, non-profit organizations, juvenile justice agencies, retirement communities, research institutes, retreat centers, dance and yoga studios. The people I have served and the integrity of the staff in each setting have been my greatest teachers.  
 

After 15 years of public service as a clinical social worker, in 2011, I transitioned to a full-time private practice, offering sessions for adults and couples as well as teaching yoga workshops, retreats and classes. In 2012, I completed Thai yoga massage training and began co-leading monthly playshops and retreats with Kelly Kempter.  In 2014, I accepted a part-time faculty position at Washtenaw Community College, and continue to teach a two-credit course on the philosophy and practice of Hatha yoga.   

Since I began my undergraduate education in 1989, I have been immersed in studying a broad range of body/mind/spirit approaches to alleviating the causes and conditions of human suffering.  My primary orientation to meeting the call to resolve trauma and fully awaken the capacity to thrive is a fusion of the rapidly evolving science of healing our psycho-neuro-biology and attachment system and the wisdom tradition of yoga.  I am a student and practitioner of sensorimotor psychotherapy, internal family systems, EMDR, secure attachment and bonding and non-violent communication.  My yogic path encompasses ethics, postures, breathing, meditation, mantra, chanting, devotion and Thai yoga massage. I am also a Reiki Master and deepening my skills as a channel of this resourcing energy.

I believe the most effective and efficient approach is interdisciplinary, and I encourage clients to build a team of practitioners and practices, as well as family and community supports that will serve them in an epic journey of rediscovering wholeness.

Just like you, I am continually studying, learning and growing, remaining steadfast in my devotion to this evolutionary process with my own family, teachers, community and connection with the sacred.   

I would be honored to offer my gifts in service to your journey.
