I am a psychotherapist in private practice working in Berkeley. My practice:Authentic and Compassionate Psychotherapy www.authentictherapy.net, specializes in working with adolescents, parents, families and individuals.
I have seen the power of healthy eating movement and meditation results on a deeply personal level. I had a severe back injury in 2006, resulting in medical trauma and chronic pain. The experience radically changed my life in many ways. Learning to walk again, find balance and learning to have a different relationship with pain has been a profound experience. Now, with a strong meditation practice and an anti-inflammatory diet (gluten, sugar and dairy free), my pain is greatly reduced and manageable. I am always looking for new ways to move with ease. I feel fortunate to have the resources I have and believe in the power of community. And I love my career and family. Glad to be a part of this community!!
