I have been meditating for over 25 years, with daily practice and study for the past 6 years. As someone who deals with chronic pain and fatigue, these practices have helped me to quiet my mind, change my relationship to my body and develop a sense of inner peace. I soon realized I could live with more ease than I ever imagined, I learned to be more compassionate and to love myself as a queer gender expansive person.

In February, 2021, I graduated from the MMTCP 2 year teacher training course, led by Tara Brach & Jack Kornfield. Online, I offer a free mindfulness practice group on Tuesday evenings and other mindfulness classes including a 6-week class on Foundations of Mindfulness.

As a mindfulness practitioner, I bring my most compassionate self to the healing work I do as a psychotherapist. As a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Long Beach, CA I offer individual and couples therapy, specializing in working with LGBTQ+ folks.  Utilizing mindfulness techniques and practices in psychotherapy, helps to incorporate mindfulness into all areas of life: professionally, personally, and relationally.
