Research towards my book "Multidimensional Healing" soon to be published by Austin Macauley revealed that unresolved childhood trauma underlies many common mental, emotional & physical health issues such as PTSD, HDD, anxiety, depression, chronic hypertension & auto-immune diseases. Therefore, I have trained in the trauma resolution methods EMDR, Internal Family Systems & Somatic Experiencing designed to reactivate embodied psychic trauma & facilitate its release. These methods are life-changing when they release the trauma blocking the flow of vitality, love and well-being.

I borrow from theories such as Psychodynamic/Attachment, Internal Family Systems , Mindfullness and Compassion-Focused.
Please note I am not currently accepting new clients. In working together, I will provide empathic listening while helping you explore your feelings and concerns at a pace that is right for you. Speaking to a therapist often makes us feel vulnerable. It is important for me that you feel safe and heard in our sessions so that we can build a therapeutic relationship that promotes growth. Together, we can establish goals, unpack your strengths, and develop greater self-compassion with the aim of fostering positive change.

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couple’s Therapy as well as training in Internal Family Systems Therapy ( IFS ).
We often believe that we are alone in our suffering, that no one has experienced or could understand what we are going through, or conversely, that the suffering of others is much greater than our own, that ours does not deserve attention. Fear of judgment and vulnerability can keep us from reaching out when we need it most. That is why I believe there is power in creating space to explore obstacles that hinder us from thriving. Whether you are making sense of your past, navigating issues in the present, or planning for your future, it would be my privilege to walk alongside you on your journey of healing.

I help folks connect more compassionately with themselves, with others, and with a larger sense of meaning in life. You might be struggling with high anxiety that won’t let you rest, or depression that’s keeping you “stuck”. You might be experiencing a difficult life transition, and unsure how to move forward. You might be unhappy with your substance use, or feeling like unresolved trauma is keeping you on a emotional roller-coaster. I also work extensively with members of the 2SLGBTQ+ communities and their families. Whatever is happening in your life, we can work on it together.

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. There are times in our lives where dark clouds roll in. The rain falls hard and heavy. We sit by the window and watch hoping for the sun to shine again. During such dark times, we reach out to family members for support, but family isn't always available to offer hope. If I have to define my practice in one word, that word is SAFETY. Safety means building a professional relationship based on trust and communication. It means working together to set a pace and direction. This is something we work out together.
