Throughout my life I have been drawn to contemplative practice and the exploration of our shared human capacity for transformation and healing. Today, my offerings stand at the crossroads of Buddhist and applied shamanic practices.
I offer shamanic counseling and Depth Hypnosis, and was trained by Isa Gucciardi, PhD. and the Foundation of the Sacred Stream. I have found this path to be a doorway into deeper healing and intuitive wisdom, and am honored to share this empowering work with others.
I also share meditation & mindfulness with adults and teens at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, San Francisco Insight, and others. My practice is informed by a deep love of the Dharma, significant time in silent retreat, training in Buddhist chaplaincy, and leadership roles at meditation centers in the Insight tradition.
I currently live and work on unceded Coastal Miwok land. My personal lineage in this work draws on a lifetime of seeking deeper truths, and a childhood spent in the immense refuge of nature. I offer deep bows to the women in my Irish and Polish lineages who have shared with me about experiences wildcrafting medicine, connecting with the sacred, and navigating the waters of intuitive knowing.
