(He/They) 

Founder, Wellness Beyond Words

 

I entered the field of body psychotherapy as someone whose life had been (and continues to be) deeply enriched by it. I arrived as a client in 2000, while working as a musician and teacher, then shifted into social work and clinical mental healthcare, before shifting into my current offerings. It has taken many roads to lead to Wellness Beyond Words, the private practice I founded in 2013 and continue to grow into. Social justice work, a deep spiritual life, and the ongoing experience of being a person who is queer have informed my particular commitment to supporting the unseen, unheard, exiled and forgotten parts of ourselves and our world.

Over the past 25+ years, I have been a student, practitioner and teacher of many approaches to wellbeing, self-care, and the care of others. Here is a snapshot of some of those parts of my journey. Please let me know if you have further questions. And thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about me. I hope it gives you an initial sense of how or if I may be of support to you.
