About

My work includes a deep commitment to the well-being of my clients. I work with those who are 19 and older and offer individual as well as group sessions. I understand that stress affects our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual selves. In my specialized practice, I support people whose difficult life experiences have resulted in post traumatic and dissociative responses, as well as anxiety and depression. I assist my clients to make the shift from surviving to thriving. I often work experientially in sessions using parts work and music, with a focus on relationship and emotion. We'll collaborate on a plan that works for you.
I have experience with phobias, panic disorder, bipolar, low self-esteem, perfectionism, people seeking personal growth (identity, personality, & relationship issues), neglect, abuse, burnout, grief & loss, compassion fatigue, adjustment, and music performance anxiety. I particularly enjoy working with adult children of narcissistic parents.
I have specialized training in CBT, ACT, AEDP, & EMDR for trauma & dissociation. I also offer sessions using music & imagery, and Guided Imagery & Music (GIM). I have completed training through the Traumatology Institute (Toronto), Boston Trauma Centre, & Cape Cod Institute, and the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (NY).
