She teaches cutting edge somatic psychotherapy modalities and trauma recovery skills for treating trauma survivors and increasing their capacities, experience of safety, resources and their integrated functioning and sense of wellbeing.
She currently serves as adjunct faculty for the California Institute for Integral Studies in the San Francisco Bay Area and has been both core and adjunct faculty at John F. Kennedy University in the East Bay. For over 15 years, she served as a trainer and organizer for Pat Ogden's Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute and Bill Bowen's Psycho-Physical Therapy Institute.

She helps people regain a sense of choice, control, safety and a more integrated and resourced sense of self.
Her work is strongly influenced by current research in the field of attachment, trauma, and neurobiology, and is a blend of her own orientation and the influence and teachings of Richard Shwartz's Internal Family Systems Model, Francine Shapiro's EMDR protocol, Steve Hoskinson's Organic Intelligence, Ron Kurtz's Hakomi Therapy, Pat Ogden's Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing, Bill Bowen's Psycho-Physical Therapy, and Diana Fosha's AEDP therapy.
