Integrative Therapy for Mind and Body
As a licensed clinical psychologist based in Anchorage, Alaska, I offer psychotherapy for people with a wide variety of emotional, mental health, interpersonal, stress-related, and mind-body health concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, addiction / alcoholism recovery, and chronic pain.
I am also a licensed acupuncturist, and my practice emphasizes the integration of classical Chinese medicine with depth psychotherapy–including acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as well as mindfulness / meditation and medical qigong / energy medicine practices.
Psyche and body are intimately entwined, and in my experience the process of healing the psyche greatly benefits from attention to both. In conjunction with counseling, somatic methods from traditional healing practices, alternative medicine, health psychology, and other natural and holistic health approaches can deepen and quicken the healing process.
With years of training and practice in depth psychotherapy, clinical health psychology, traditional Asian medicine, and spiritual, contemplative, and somatic disciplines, I am able to provide a unique perspective in working with each person on their individual path of healing–on moving through uncertainty, stuckness, and shame.
Ultimately, the goal of all healing is to help us to live in deepening connection with our hearts, souls, and bodies—which is the truest form of medicine.
