It's another day feeling inundated by work and family demands. Working, parenting, and home schooling are three jobs you never thought you would be doing at the same time. Your sweet kid went to bed late last night again and woke up tired and complaining about everything. You worry she might fall behind in school or that she's developing bad habits. Your protectiveness and patience turns to irritation and you tell her to “Just stop!” She stays in her room for most of the day doesn’t say another word to you until dinner. You want what’s best for your kid. It’s confusing not knowing what just happened and why.

We will work together first to address your current symptoms and alleviate your suffering. As you begin to feel better, we can then shift into working with longer term patterns and challenges. As you embark on this journey, I offer a mindful, compassionate and collaborative container for our process together.

I enjoy working with adolescents(16 and older), adults and couples. I have fourteen years experience as a clinician and have been licensed for the past 10 years. I use many different tools to facilitate change, including CBT and ACT for symptom relief and the techniques and processes of Hakomi, a body-centered depth psychotherapy, which integrates western psychology, advances in neurobiology, and the mindfulness practices of Buddhist Meditation. I believe that decreasing unhealthy stress, restoring trust in relationships, and changing self-limiting belief systems can lead to transformation. I use a warm, friendly, and engaged style of therapy.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) takes healing to a deeper level. Combined with 'top-down' approaches, SE helps identify strengths and intentions beneath painful survival patterns. Shame, fear and anger transform into vital life energy. Surviving becomes thriving.

Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution. I work to separate past hurts from present reality. As an Equine Specialist, I use horses and exotic animals as requested.
