About

With trauma or ongoing stress, survival energy becomes stuck in our nervous system. We might make adjustments, like seeking or 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 also have us feeling trapped in patterns that take a huge toll on our lives, health and relationships. My clients and I work together to discover ways to restore a sense of inner security, peace and passion for life.
My therapeutic approach is relational and somatic. I offer therapy attuned to people's individual needs for a range of issues, such as depression, anxiety, stress, grief/loss, interpersonal problems, relationships, trauma, and general life challenges. At times, therapy can be about personal growth or spirituality.
I have extensive experience working with issues relating to trauma, including developmental / complex trauma. I welcome people from all walks of life, with diverse cultures 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.
