About Me

I love working with clients using Depth Hypnosis, Shamanic Counseling, and meditation because I know it works. It profoundly changed my life, and I trust it can change yours too. Whether you’re hoping to nurture healthier relationships, live with greater purpose, or heal trauma, anxiety, or something else – this work can be a deep support.

I’m a certified Depth Hypnosis Practitioner and Applied Shamanic Counselor, trained by Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D. and the Foundation of the Sacred Stream. When I’m not working with clients, you’ll often find me assisting Depth Hypnosis practitioner trainings and other courses to support others’ learning about this powerful modality. 

My work is also deeply informed by Buddhist practice. I teach mindfulness to adults and teens, trained in Buddhist chaplaincy, and have spent significant time sitting and supporting others in silent retreat. As a spiritual counselor, I love working with people who want to go to greater depths in their meditation practice or explore their relationship to spirituality. I know first-hand that spiritual practice can contain great joys and deep sorrows. Because of this, in addition to supporting clients with a wide range of issues and goals, I’m also dedicated to working with those who are undergoing a spiritual emergency, crisis of faith, or who have experienced harm through spiritual teachers or religious community.

Perhaps most importantly, I’m interested in you – what you want out of life, where you feel stuck, and what it’s like to walk your unique path. My greatest joy is helping my incredible clients transform and heal, move through life with greater clarity, and connect with their own unique power and wisdom.
