Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, SEP
Many of my clients come to me after having spent a number of years in traditional talk therapy, feeling there is something deeper, within their body, that needs attention and healing. They know that trauma is stored in their body and can only be healed with the body in mind. Symptoms might include unrelenting anxiety, chronic pain or tension patterns, numbness, dissociation, and/or emotional, behavioral, or physiological patterns that continue to show up in spite of the cognitive insights and shifts that have occurred with the help of past therapy.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, NeuroAffective Touch Therapist, and Mindfulness Educator, I offer a person-centered, holistic approach to healing. Beyond traditional talk therapy, I work with the body and the nervous system where our survival instincts and behavioral impulses begin.
The guiding tenets of my work include authenticity, compassion, and the creation of a safe environment that is necessary for deep healing and lasting change.
