“If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.” -Thomas Merton
I am a lover of God. people, nature, and animals. I am truly passionate about helping women live out the fullness of who they are and see that there can be growth through difficult and painful things. Nothing you say could probably shock me. I have walked a deep journey full of loss, loneliness, goodness, questioning, happiness, anger, fear. I walk with women through their grief, depression, loss, relationship difficulties and being with you as you discover more of You!
A Bit About Me
I have had my private practice in Southern California since 2013 working with women and men from 17-70…all different life stages from college students to grandparents, but all seeking to become more of their true selves!
I studied philosophy and sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara
I did my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at Vanguard and completed my Masters in Spiritual Formation and Soul Care from Biola University
I studied at Loyola Institute for Spirituality in their certificate program in Spirituality
I am a certified Life Coach
I currently works at Biola University at the Center for Spiritual Renewal as a spiritual director for their Undergraduates, Graduate students, and staff.
These days I enjoy working in beautiful San Clemente, where I have a private practice offering counseling, Life coaching, and Spiritual Direction. As well, as in person meetings, I Skype and FaceTime with women throughout the U.S. and around the world…from the bay area to Hong Kong!
I am passionate about helping others discover their trues selves and discover your deepest sense of belonging and self-worth
I specialize in grief, loss, depression, trauma. I have worked with different types of caregivers to help them create soul care in their own lives.
All the photos on my website are places I frequent often in the great outdoors and they were taken by my other half
l am most myself when I’m in nature
You will hear me say “open” a lot. I think we sometimes just have to pause and reopen as its so easy to close to what is
I work with people of all faiths, although I have my own personal faith I find each person’s journey unique and sacred.
I have a French bulldog who sometimes wears a Patagonia jacket when its cold
I love to hike, ski, practice yoga, travel, and find home at the sea and mountains
