My work is the outcome of a life long exploration of the body as a professional dancer, yoga teacher, & structural integration bodyworker, as well as my own use of mindfulness and art.
In 2006, I received my Masters in Occupational Therapy at USC. I then spent 12 years at NPI ULCA. During my time there I developed the trauma informed sensory program for the adult unit and the mindfulness based program for the adult eating disorder unit.
In 2012, I completed my Somatic Experiencing training and have gone on to train in post grad SE Touch work and Somatic Resilience and Resolution. I continue to assist SE trainings & mentor students of OT & SE throughout the world.
Currently, I work at The Camden Center outpatient treatment center for addiction and mental health. I see adolescents and adults of all ages in my private practice in Santa Monica, CA.
My passions outside of the clinical treatment room are assisting Somatic Experiencing trainings, traveling, craftivism and biking.
