It can be hard to enjoy life, especially when our innermost thoughts and automatic reactions are difficult or painful. It can feel like we are "stuck" on autopilot causing many areas of our life to feel unsatisfying, stressful, or overwhelming. I enjoy helping people to get "unstuck" from the symptoms of stress that they have been trying to manage (panic, anxiety, relationship issues, reactivity, etc). By reducing chronically held tension in our nervous system, we may better manage our responsibilities, our relationships, and recover ourselves easier. Therapy can help restore an inner calm and can help you come back to yourself.
It is valuable to explore the impact of both difficult events (illness, MVI, grief) and long-term stress (negative relationships, work issues, poor coping). With 10 years of somatic therapy experience, together we can work toward increasing your ability to manage stress, reducing discomfort, making authentic decisions, change habits and repair relationships.
I bring compassion and humour to therapy. I am not a silent, nodding therapist; instead, I engage warmly, directly, and candidly. I hope my clients feel engaged and eager to participate. If you want to work on a specific issue or a nameless "stuckness", reach out. Together we can find paths to coping, improving relationships, and simply feeling better.

I have 10 years experience as a Somatic therapist. Somatic therapy is a type of talk therapy that is so beneficial for helping people with overwhelmed nervous systems (panic attacks, chronic stress, intrusive thoughts, sleep probs, reactivity) find ways to feel more at ease, calm, and confident. I use somatic awareness with EMDR, mindfulness practices, and constant awareness of trauma physiology.
