A life truly lived constantly burns away veils of illusion,

burns away what is no longer relevant,

gradually reveals our essence, until, at last,

we are strong enough to stand in our naked truth.


-Marion Woodman

Individual Soul Work

Online or In-Person Sessions

This collaborative depth work allows us to listen closely to your inner-most self and engage meaningfully and compassionately with the inner and outer experiences of your life, so that we might see what wants to be born in you and gently help it along. 


We will put our ears to your soul, and tune into and explore your dreams, difficulties, feelings, intuitions, and more to hear what in you is needing your care and attention, and to follow psyche's breadcrumbs, uncovering, step by step, your truest self and path. 

This process can support you in:​ 

  • Working through conditioning and unconscious patterns to reveal your most authentic self and access your deep knowing, wisdom and creativity.

  • Recovering your worth in "being" vs doing, and living a slower and more restful, balanced, meaningful and soul-centered life.

  • Finding transformation and wisdom in your struggles and uncertainties, and navigating your transitions and dark nights with care.

  • Accepting and having compassion for yourself and your life, and showing up for yourself through it all.

  • Discovering and carrying out your unique gifts - gifts the world is in desperate need of.

  • Cultivating more depth, intimacy and connectedness in your relationships and friendships. ​

  • Reconnecting to the sacred and wild, and reclaiming a more natural, enchanted way of living, in tune with your soul's own rhythm and magic.​​



Sessions can take place anywhere in the world through Skype, Zoom or phone, or in my office in Santa Barbara, California. Sessions are typically 50 minutes once weekly, and the work can be long-term or short-term. 

I also work with therapists, coaches and other practitioners, who are wanting to learn the language of psyche and the unconscious, or dive into depth psychology, and deepen their work with their clients. 


50 minute sessions are 150 - 190 dollars depending on ability to pay. If you have questions or would like to set up a free 20 minute consultation, you can contact me here. I'd love to hear from you.


My Background:

My work is Depth & Jungian in nature, although I pull from many other traditions as well. I earned a Master's Degree in Transpersonal Holistic Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth & Jungian Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. Among my mentors have been Thomas Elsner, Ph.D, Jungian Psychoanalyst, professor and author. and Dr. Meredith Sabini, Psychologist, author, and founder of the Dream Institute of Northern California.

Note: While in the past I did work as a Marriage & Family Therapist Associate and have extensive training and experience using many psychological as well as relational and psycho-spiritual modalities, I chose to step away from the clinical psychotherapy track and no longer practice as an MFT. This means I do not treat or diagnose mental or emotional disorders or maladjustment. And unlike traditional therapy or coaching, where often the aim is fixing or solving, this work is instead about following, step by the step, the soul’s signposts home, and my role is that of guide or mentor on your path back to and towards wholeness.
