I believe each human being has direct access, all the time, to the intelligent creative vitality that is our own life force. When we are overwhelmed, traumatized, depressed, or anxious, those resources might seem scarce. Living confidently from our deepest nature and purpose requires that we have access to the internal guidance rooted in this vitality. Contacting this energy directly with awareness, tracking emotional and physiological processes, and working with present moment awareness, belief systems, and biological self-protective capacities supports the nervous system to reorganize and reorient the whole self back towards authentic, spontaneous ease and wellbeing.

I practice Gestalt Therapy and Somatic Experiencing; both center in the present. Together, body and mind provide access to the resilience needed to freely reorganize, regulate and refresh the whole self. We human beings are built to thrive; therapy is about returning to that natural kaleidoscopic, gyroscopic ease and flow.

I am active and engaged as a therapist. The therapy session is a place for exploration, respectful engagement, and experimentation. Often when we feel bound in difficulty, the best way to unwind is to go gently, take it easy, and be playful.
