“It's easy to be a naive idealist. It's easy to be a cynical realist. It's quite another thing to have no illusions and still hold the inner flame.”
~ Marie-Louise von Franz
I am a depth and transpersonal psychology practitioner and researcher specializing in methods of engaging with the unconscious through experiential work. By becoming aware of our unconscious patterns, working with the body, and separating from our limiting beliefs, we can gain a more whole sense of self, foster a growth mindset, and promote wellbeing.
I have a Master's of Science in Consciousness, Spirituality, and Transpersonal Psychology from Alef Trust / Liverpool John Moores University, UK, as well as a Depth and Transpersonal Psychology practitioner certification under Dr. Bonnie Bright, PhD, accredited through the International Association of Coaches, Therapists, and Mentors (IACTM).
I am a big fan of depth psychotherapist Satya Doyle Byock’s work and continue my study of analytical psychology with The Salome Institute of Jungian Studies, The Jung Center of Houston, and the Internal Family Systems Institute, among others. I am grateful to learn and grow and be in the above communities, as well as in my long-standing women’s group of seventeen years.
In my free time, I like to explore and appreciate local artists’ work, take spontaneous day trips, and enjoy walks on the greenbelt. I like to laugh and enjoy time together with my family, friends, and our fourteen-year-old rescue pup. I often suffer from biophilia - a feeling of wonder and love for nature and all living things.
To get to know me a bit better, you can watch an interview of Dr. Bright and I here (coming soon) or, read some of my work under Writings in the Resources section.
