I work with many people who feel overwhelmed--by traumatic events, or simply when modern life, feelings or relationships are "too much". Some tried regular talk therapy, but their symptoms didn't shift. This is often because the stress response is stuck in the body. This can show up as PTSD, anxiety, depression, low motivation, panic attacks, substance abuse, eating disorders, etc.My clients learn what their bodies are trying to tell them and how to stop symptoms & support healthy well-being. I have a knack for working with unusual or "out of the box" folks.
I'm certified in Somatic Experiencing (SE), developed by Dr. Peter Levine for clearing trauma, stress and overwhelm (see somaticwise.net). I am also a certified Naturalist and a practicing ecotherapist: helping people and nature heal each other. I work both indoors and outdoors, depending on the individual's needs and the customized treatment plan.
Therapy should be a safe place, so in session, I help people learn to deal with things without being overwhelmed. Therapy should also be fun at least some of the time, so I help people find & practice a little playfulness, or whatever lights them up inside. Please feel free to reach out and schedule a consultation with me, if you feel I may be a "good fit".

Somatic Experiencing works with the "felt sense", the sensations and bodily signals from the autonomic nervous system. I help the body shift out of stress response and into present well being. Over time, people tend to feel more embodied, capable and calm. Ecological Psychology helps us feel the connection between us and Nature, supporting self-regulation and resolving the problems of our time.
