"You've heard of the wounded healer archetype, and you really relate. My clients often feel they're alone -- afraid to reach out, worried they've failed just by needing support, ashamed that their past experiences of trauma and abuse are not "fully healed by now", anxious that this means there is something truly "wrong" with them. What they used to love about life: connection, love, creativity, finding their soul's path -- it's disappearing, and they aren't sure how to get it back. They'd do anything to heal and reconnect with themselves and their lives, to remember who they truly are. I get what that feels like, and I can help!"

"Therapy provides a special opportunity to slow down and focus on what's most important, with support and guidance. I create a safe and nonjudgmental environment for you to explore the difficulties, heartaches, old wounds, stuck places, or celebrations of your life. This process involves listening to the wisdom of your body and emotions as well as your mind. Collaborating with you, I will support you to develop a more intimate relationship with yourself, to expand your capacity to satisfyingly connect with others, and to illuminate and transform what blocks you from living your best life."

"Navigating your 20's is a bit more difficult than you thought it would be. As you figure out life as a 20-something, you often compare yourself to your peers and feel behind. You may feel not quite as successful as others or like you are somehow behind where you thought you should be in life. In many ways, you're not sure how well you're doing this whole adulting thing and feel like your worst critic. You often feel guilty often and ashamed and want to feel more confident in yourself."

"We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture. It is hard to find flexibility of thought and a space to feel like we are good enough. Yet, through compassionate acceptance and practical skill building I can help."

Re-igniting our inner-fire and natural emotional balance can understandably be a challenge. Trauma-informed somatic psychotherapy can help! I take my role as a therapist, one who supports the client On their journey, as a facilitator of a sacred collaboration. I conduct therapy with an intention to process and move trauma (anxiety, depression and grief accompanying it) in order to restore balance between the mind, body, and spirit and reignite the internal fire."

""We are now able to see the essential ingredient that makes psychotherapy effective and successful. Is is not "unconditional positive regard," nor is it magical words, techniques, or postures; it is human involvement and struggle. It is the willingness of the therapist to extend himself or herself for the purpose of nurturing the patient's growth - willingness to go out on a limb, to truly involve oneself at an emotional level in the relationship."
