Depth Psychotherapy

Aligning with the inherent wisdom of your deepest self, I support you toward wellbeing of your mind, body, relationships, and life. My work with couples focuses on attuned connection, healing early attachment, conscious communication, and deep intimacy.

Healing from Trauma

Drawing upon mindfulness, somatic awareness, and compassionate presence, I support you in resourcing mind-body regulation, transforming your relationship to past trauma, and creating personal and relational health and well-being.


Presence and awareness

Breath of life

Journey to wholeness



“Dharma” is a Sanskrit word that means teaching, truth, that which supports, sustains, and upholds. Likened to the ground one stands on, to align with Dharma brings about unity and harmony. It is an underlying truth of all spiritual traditions.

The highest dharma is to recognize and live in accordance with the deepest truth in one’s own heart, a divine or creative principal at work in an individual. To follow your dharma is to take the path that leads from suffering to a way of being that brings greater mind-body harmony, life purpose, and interconnectedness with our shared humanity and earth.

Healing from Suicide and Loss – A Guided Journey

By Robert E. Lesoine and Marilynne Chöphel MFT

A book and guided process offered to survivors of great loss with the hope that traces of the painful past be released with a renewed relationship with yourself, your life, and with your loved one.

I advocate for social and racial justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion, and am committed to culturally responsive mental health care for all. I welcome all ages, all races, all religions, all genders, all countries of origin, all languages, all sexual orientations, all sizes, all abilities, all people.
