About Me

My commitment to this work is born out of my own healing.  A grandchild of Holocaust survivors, I was born into a body and family carrying the vulnerabilities of intergenerational trauma.  For much of my life, I suffered from various physical ailments, anxieties, and feelings of disconnection, with no real understanding of their source or the possibility of relief.

In 2008, I discovered meditation, which initiated a tangible physical and emotional healing process and anchored me in a source of spiritual inspiration.  I pursued a year of residential practice, and have kept up a daily practice ever since.  I also began working with a few skilled therapists, providing the context I needed to access a more relational way of being in the world.

I’ve spent the following years studying somatically-based therapies – including Hakomi, Somatic Experiencing, and Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) – as well as completing a master’s degree in counseling.  I now work with individuals, couples, and groups in private practice, helping clients move towards greater ease, connection, and agency in their lives.

I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) through the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).

I consider it a great blessing to have had many inspiring mentors and to be involved in work that I love within a wonderful community of clients, colleagues, family, and friends.
