I am glad you are here.
GO SLOWLY is an invitation to pause, notice the present moment, and explore compassion and somatic practices to help you become kinder to yourself, transform suffering, and cultivate peace.
My approach to therapy focuses on the integration of psychology, mindfulness, compassion, neuroscience, and somatic practices to alleviate suffering. Based on your particular needs and preferences, we can approach the work from a psychotherapy framework with a greater emphasis on dialogue, or from a yoga therapy perspective that emphasizes working with the body.
