My self-summary
I am multifaceted. I thrive in many different settings. My family, culture, upbringing and many rich and challenging experiences have shaped my reality and how I show up in the world. There is no way I can begin to explain who I am in just this small space and would encourage you to inquire further if anything within my profile calls out to you.

I have studied, lived and worked in Sacramento, St. Louis, San Francisco, Australia, Big Sur, Baja, Santa Cruz, and now Oakland. I have studied Business, Marketing, Psychology, Buddhism, Yoga, Ayurvedic Medicine, Shamanism, and Dance.

I aspire to always be growing- stretching my body and mind and moving from my core. I love to read, to learn, and engage in philosophical, exstistential, spiritual,cultural and intellectual conversations. I have an adventurous spirit. I love to be in motion and explore new things. I find balance in hiking, yoga, and dancing. I am a sensualist. I actually, teach others how to get in deeper contact with their body and sensation. I also practice stillness and silence. I feel most at home in nature, in water, and when I'm naked. I love to laugh, be playful, and experience new things. A healthy dose of these things is the best medicine.

I love relating. I am fascinated by others' perspectives and seeing the world through diverse lenses. I know that relationships can be the best of times AND the most challenging of times; especially the Romantic kinds.

To love and be loved is what I believe we are here to do. To me this is created from two people coming together; listening, seeing, and respecting one another, and committing to working at it. I think the best relationships are the ones you can be your most authentic and vulnerable self with and of course there is so much room for fun and play along the way.
What I’m doing with my life
I just graduated from a Master's Program! For the past 3 years I have been studying Somatic (Body-Oriented) Psychotherapy at CIIS. I am currently working with children at a community mental health agency. I am passionate and devoted to this embodiment work, healing trauma, and cultivating a deeper awareness and expanding capacity for what life has to offer.

I am moving from my heart, attempting to step back, trust, and allow life to unfold, while enjoying the crazy, magical ride.
