Creativity X Healing


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I support people to heal early trauma and regain vitality.

The work is an integration of talking and bodywork, that weaves together many modalities, including: biodynamic craniosacral therapy, perinatal psychology, and narrative medicine, with a focus on the autonomic nervous system and applied attachment theory. I see clients in Berkeley, California and Zoom.

Prenatal & Postpartum Sessions


Prenatal & Postpartum Sessions


Supporting parents and babies before and after birth to prevent and resolve challenging birth experiences and build the foundation for lifelong health.

I offer Birth Preparation and Postpartum Integration sessions for families at the Prenatal, Birth & Attachment Clinic that I co-founded with my colleagues Chanti Smith, Elan Freydenson and Joel Decker. Our clinic is at Pacifica Family Maternity Center in Berkeley, CA.
