About

Life can be unsettling, overwhelming, even traumatic at times. Self-esteem can waiver, relationships can be difficult, we can become anxious, depressed, experience guilt, loss and sadness. All are normal parts of the human experience, yet not always easy to navigate on our own. My belief is that through a dialogical relationship with a compassionate other, while listening to the information our body provides, healing is very possible. I aim to create an environment which assists couples in acquiring skills to strengthen communication and connection. Individual uniqueness is celebrated as are an understanding of individual needs.
Many of us are somewhere along the continuum of developmental trauma. Emotional support that was missing in our childhoods, may have contributed to this. Some of us have had instances of shock trauma, whether it be an accident, assault, surgery or other. Somatic Experiencing and Attachment theory techniques help rewire your nervous system after trauma.
You will receive compassionate guidance toward greater insight into your present condition; whether it's a current situational issue or deeper wound. Therapy is tailored to your specific needs from a place of compassion, understanding that some parts of ourselves are more developed than others. Strengths are celebrated as are the potential for growth.
