• Are you ready to claim the truth within you?



    You came here to live out loud. You see what others cannot. You feel deeply. You have the courage of your fire-tested convictions. You know this world needs your uniqueness, but sometimes you wonder how to make the world realize this.


    You are a badass, a pirate, a tinkerer, a creator, an explorer, a craftsman, a heretic, and a legend.


    You are perfect just as you are...and you could also use a little help finding the answers you know lie within you.....


    I am an integrative creative arts counselor and somatic therapist who helps curious, creative, embodied humans (just like you) reconnect with themselves, so they can move forward with freedom, with control, and with the full power of their whole being supporting them.


    I enjoy playing whole-intelligence creative games with my clients. I relish the company of uncategorisable, imagineering people. I value mindful questioning, emotional truth, and raw courage.


    I use embodied hypnotherapeutic games, somatic enquiry play, creative storytelling, and meditative bodywork to help my clients choose their own adventures. I built my psychological counselling practice on top of years of teaching Eastern and Western bodywork, Argentine tango, and osteopathic and structural integration work. I see the body as our most direct route to the power of our greater consciousness. I spent many years studying martial arts, yoga, and the dances and music of the world. I complement this with a love of the magic of storytelling, used to perform at storytelling events in Berlin, and have published sixteen books.


    I am now back in San Francisco, offering counselling and bodywork, and am working toward a triple hat trick of LMFT, LPCC, and REAT...because I just didn't have enough degrees already!


    I have been a Buddhist for thirty years.


    You and I are both fully committed to your journey of discovery. We both practice compassion, we are both curious, we both assume responsibility for what is ours, we both show up as our authentic selves, and we both say yes to growth and transformation.
