My Background

I am a trained psychotherapist with an Integral Counseling Psychology Masters degree from The California Institute of Integral Studies. I am also in the process of becoming a certified Co-Active coach with the Coaches Training Institute.  I received my B.A. in Sociology from Vassar College. I am bilingual in Spanish and my recent psychotherapeutic work has been as a Bilingual Trauma Therapist with victims of crime.

Before my graduate studies, I lived for eight years in Oaxaca, Mexico, and Barcelona, Spain. During this time, I taught English and Art, studied metalwork and jewelry design, and became fluent in Spanish. I am an artist, sewist, and mother.

Therapeutic Coaching

Therapeutic Coaching focuses on your specific goals and how to move forward to reach those goals, while taking into account your physical, emotional and spiritual selves.  As a Co-Active coach, I hold an underlying premise that you are naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and are capable of finding your own answers to your questions. I am here to support and empower you as you access your power, strength, intuition, creativity and integrity. My coaching style is trauma informed and I am confident working with the complex range of human emotion as well as the way we hold our pasts in our bodies. I am particularly passionate about working with new moms and moms to be as they move through their own unique transformation. I also love to work with college seniors and recent graduates as they contemplate meaningful next steps. I also participate in coaching projects with Lead Out of the Box Leadership LTD.

I am currently offering a renewable three to six month Therapeutic Coaching package. This includes bi-monthly sessions with text/email support throughout the month. Sessions are held via a video phone service called Zoom.
