Announcement icon As of August 1, 2021 I will see clients in person on Fridays. (Please wear a mask.) Tuesdays is reserved for online sessions.
My approach to therapy is rooted in the view that people have an inherent capacity for healthiness. I experienced this working with a therapist a long time ago needing support as a bewildered new parent and, eventually, single parenting 2 children. With the stressors of modern life, it is easy to lose one's way. I will work with you to uncover that wellbeing again so that you can live the life you deserve with more vitality and authenticity whether you suffer from chronic illness, the burden of a traumatic injury or past, anxiety, depression or the malaise that comes from being over-stressed and not coping as well as you'd like.
I have many years of experience working with complex trauma, depression, anxiety. The mindfulness-based approaches to health that I integrate in treatment can help you become more present. I work with close attention to the impact emotions have on the body's physiology; and I am trained in somatic experience to treat trauma as developed by Peter Levine PhD.
While I bring expertise and knowledge about how to help you, you are the expert of what it’s like to be you. We are equal partners in this process. I encourage your ideas and feedback at all times. We will work together to listen to your body’s wisdom by noticing what you sense in your body in safety, as well as attending to your thoughts and feelings.
