With trauma or chronic stress, physiological survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. This can cause us to make adjustments, like avoiding certain types of situations or clenching certain muscles to dodge tricky feelings or sensations. We believe this keeps us safe from what we fear, but it can keep us trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives and health. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.

As a trauma specialist, my approach is relational, holistic, and somatic (body oriented). I offer therapy attuned to the individual needs of clients for a variety of issues, including trauma, abuse, chronic stress, chronic illness, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, interpersonal issues, as well as general life challenges or personal growth.

I have extensive experience with relational and other trauma, including developmental and complex trauma. I welcome people from all walks of life, with diverse cultural backgrounds or sexual or gender identities to my practice. You are warmly invited to contact me to find out if what I offer could be right for you.
