Does it feel like your life is on repeat? Do you want to live in the present but are struggling against yourself or have been unable to let go of the trauma that keeps you stuck in the past? Are relationships a continual challenge? I can help you move forward to where you want to go by reconfiguring aspects of your life and reconnecting to yourself and the wisdom you already possess. We will work together towards safety and stability in your world, while achieving a sense of grounding, healing and hope.
I have fifteen years of experience working with Complex PTSD, eating disorders, relationship anxiety and other mental health issues. I specialize in helping people to redefine trauma, viewing it as incidents fostering beliefs, feelings and ways of being in the world which unless challenged, continue to drive our thoughts, feelings, beliefs about who we are.
Utilizing Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, Structural Dissociation, IFS and DBT among others, we will work together towards emotional regulation, moving away from numbing and overwhelm. Through reconnecting to the lost parts of you, you can learn to experience the world safely, becoming the person you are meant to be and building the future you want.

I work with CPTSD, relationship anxiety and attachment issues. With respect to trauma, the goal is to understand what is happening for you first, and offer stabilization before processing traumatic events. Slower is better. In addition to traditional therapies, I also offer The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) which is a music therapy program based in polyvagal theory.
