Welcome to the International List of The Earthbody Institute Graduates!

I am currently in the midst of deep spiritual and worldly exploration to uncover and embrace my gifts and sacred purpose, which I feel have been clouded by my steadfast journey towards obtaining licensure over the past several years. I am enjoying connecting with others who are following their unique paths to inspire and guide me in discovering my true purpose so that I may better align my life's work with my soul and values.
I was recently licensed in 2018. I have worked as a mental health therapist with teenagers and young adults for 6 years. I am currently working at Bay Area Clinical Associates which is an outpatient mental health agency with locations in San Jose and Menlo Park. I am the lead therapist of two Intensive Outpatient Programs for teenagers, young adults and their families.

Wildrock's programs emphasize therapeutic play-based learning and ecotherapy practices. Visitors of all ages come for field trips, day retreats, and overnights. Ecotherapy retreats are offered for human service workers. Open community play days are available on Saturdays and select weekdays. Wildrock also runs a urban outreach program connecting children to underutilized green spaces in their own neighborhoods and schools. Stewardship projects engage school communities in reducing plastic waste and planting pollinator gardens.
Currently I provide therapy for adults of all ages. I utilize a blend of EMDR, IFS, Sensorimotor, Mindfulness, Ecotherapy and Expressive Arts Therapy within my sessions. As an EMDR consultant, I provide creative consultation for EMDR and general therapy practice. Consultation is provided either in a group or individually. I will begin providing outdoor sessions this fall.
My goal as a therapist is to help guide you, your child, or your family on your journey to healing. The core of my approach is to cultivate presence, allowing the fullness of each moment to arise, be experienced, and be cherished. By cultivating appreciation for the present moment, we cultivate an appreciation for life, in all its fullness. When sadness or other difficulty arises, we can cherish those feelings, too, knowing they are a part of the fullness of life, and that they will pass. Nothing lasts for ever, even pain, so we can learn to appreciate all of it. And you do not have to be alone in your pain. We are here together.
I have led indoor and outdoor therapy with individuals and groups. I hope I can be of help on your path.

Through my many experiences both personally and professionally, I have seen people in many life transitions and have experienced the joys and sorrow that come with each of those. I would be deeply honored to meet you where you are at in your life and help you grow to where you want to be.
I offer individual counseling to folks in both the office, outside in local parks, and via telehealth. I work with a variety of individuals, with a particular focus on those who are highly sensitive and in the LGBTQIA+ community. What does a highly sensitive person look like? Is that you? If you often feel or hear that you’re “too sensitive,” find it hard to take criticism, feel overwhelmed by daily tasks that you think should be simple, are easily overstimulated by the world, or you find yourself wanting to be heard but you’re too scared to take up space, this might be a trait that will resonate with you.
I use a holistic approach that incorporates mindfulness and body-based work. Together we can strengthen and develop your relationship with yourself, so that the chaos of the world doesn’t feel so heavy. Together we can challenge the notion that you have to be perfect and we’ll find ways to empower you to be confident and to take up the space you deserve.

I take nature to people where they are and people to nature with a focus on what science has just begun to scratch the surface in identifying with regards to the depth of our connection to nature which brings to light the harm that the human race is experiencing from that disconnect. The BdP programs are designed to enhance teamwork and leadership through workshops and retreats in educational, residential, community and corporate settings. The 'Honoring Truth of Age Program' (http://jeanndeford.com/index.php/honoring-elderhood/honoring-truth-of-age/) utilizes the BdP method and is designed to inspire today’s elder population to learn and explore what it is to transition from ‘old’ to ‘Elder’ and reimagine by THEIR design what a thriving Elderhood Community looks like. During this collaboration a deep communicative connection with other living systems is revealed and the threshold of over all health, well-being and creative expression is crossed culminating in a BdP's 'Bridging Earthland Ceremony'. BIOdancePhilia is 'Life's-dance-Connecting to Life', it IS a dance between the Body, Soul & Earth that by design embraces an intergenerational perspective intended to deepen the bond that we all share with other living systems..
