"Despite all that you have been through and achieved, you get the feeling that something is missing in your life. A recent transition, relationship or career challenge may be making it clear that some things are not working. You may also notice that you end up playing a familiar role in your relationships and this creates a "stuck" feeling. At times you feel overwhelmed with worry, pressure or confusion and may be resorting to addictive patterns or substances in order to cope. You don't want to feel "lacking," anxious or stressed out. You want to feel better and become a fuller, more centered version of yourself."

"I see myself as a holistic practitioner. Therapy with me involves working the body just as much as the mind. This can be challenging for some, but leads to long-term resolution and healing in a more complete, organic nature. Through Somatic Experiencing (SE), I have been trained to work specifically with trauma and the way in which our survival energy becomes trapped in our bodies. We embody our lived experience."

"As someone who is navigating the world between cultures, ethnicities, and labels, you most likely have been given the gift of insight, adaptability, and attunement. You can see what others don't, and are highly sensitive to what goes unspoken or unacknowledged. The gift of being adaptable in any environment can be a major strength, and it also presents a challenge.  ​When we are highly skilled at anticipating, understanding, and accommodating the feelings and needs of others, we run the risk of losing sight of our own wants and needs.

"While I do offer talk therapy, I also blend psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy and somatic therapy. Expressive arts therapy can look like anything from me having you choose images (rather than using words) to describe your experience, to drama therapy techniques by which I facilitate you having a conversation with a "part" of yourself that continues a frustrating habit. Somatic work means your body is an integral part of our process. This can mean tracking bodily shifts and sensations together. It can also involve standing practices that reflect back what your body (you) are doing, as opposed to what you think you are doing. "

"Many people, like those I usually work with, feel that, because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond.

In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying.
