Professional Clinical Counselor Registered Intern PCCI #3220

Supervised by Faye Dorman LMFT #15225 & Rachael Vaughan LMFT #50730

Human connection based on insight and empathy is transformational. Often times our suffering is a result of habitual patterns predicated on fear and difficult experiences. This in turn drains our natural ability to enjoy life, and unfortunately cultivates isolation and a conviction that we are alone. Our honest and trusting therapeutic relationship will transmute this conviction so that you once again have access to your innate resiliency and joy of life. My personal journey and professional training has enabled me to guide individuals and couples through these limited landscapes into a more expansive sense of self.

What I bring to counseling is over 3 decades of personal and professional study, training, and teaching in many areas including traditional and somatic psychotherapies, spiritual practice, various movement and dance modalities, and midwifery. As a fifty-year-old woman, I have the depth and maturity to discover and enhance your inner resources.

Our work will not only consist of psychotherapeutic theory and technique, but will also incorporate my own personal experiences and study that released me out of my own defensive patterns and limited perspective. Together, we blend compassion and a dash of humor to catalyze the positive changes you want.


I have offices in both San Rafael and Petaluma.
