When difficulties are too much to handle or the next level of growth seems just out of reach, you may find yourself living with pain and stress. While some stress in life helps people grow, chronic stress has a negative effect on your mind, body, emotions and spirit. You may find yourself using old mental, physical and emotional coping tools to survive, feeling powerless to bring real change. As your ally in holistic healing, I offer a supportive, warm presence so you can explore what's difficult, hone your strengths, and gain simple yet powerful mind/body tools.

Within a framework of somatic (body-mind) psychotherapy, I offer EMDR, AF-EMDR, and Brainspotting. Teaching your brain, body and emotions to work together in new ways, I can help you to get free from painful life experiences that keep you stuck in negative patterns.

I work with adults and teens challenged by stress, anxiety, depression, physical pain, and trauma. I support clients healing from the effects of race, class & gender inequities. All are welcome, including LGBTQI clients & poly/open clients.
