Have you tried traditional talk therapy and felt like something was missing? Did it seem like you were talking in circles, or reached a plateau? Did it feel too rigid or surface level? Many clients come to me after having done traditional talk therapy and now they want to go deeper. So many issues like codependency, addiction, and persistent anxiety and depression are rooted in subconscious beliefs and patterns rooted in childhood pain. My work is unique because we address your subconscious mind and nervous system, in addition to cognitive process, to help you heal the past in order to move forward.

I have also been trained in various trauma focused therapies, and have had past experience working with community mental health, foster youth, and EAP.
In pursuing my career in clinical work, my heart has always gravitated towards helping and supporting people who are under served, unseen, and underrepresented in our communities. Whether it be working with youth "in the system" or our military service members- I strive to be a voice for individuals who may not have the space or platform to be heard. I am looking to connect with patients who are ready for a catalyst for change- whether big or small; and who are ready to do the work to change their inner narrative, implement tools learned, make mind-body connections, and start on a journey towards healing.

My approach to therapy resembles a journey within where you are guided to meet your inner parts; those that you wish to change, confront, understand, or calm. It also involves identifying patterns of relationships to break destructive cycles. I believe that in each of us we hold the keys to unlocking both the solutions and mysteries of our present and I am here to support you in this task, whether you want to work individually or with your partner.

My approach to therapy is trauma focused , and I use EMDR, an evidence-based method, to rapidly and completely resolve the trauma that often impacts one's emotional, bodily, and psychological well-being.
Do you struggle with the belief of not being enough or doing enough despite achieving success in many different areas of your life? Do you experience a deep sense of deprivation but can't figure out what is missing? If you have these experiences and are ready to dig deeper for the answers, I would love to assist you in discovering the root causes and help you overcome the obstacles that prevent you from living the life that you dreamed for yourself.

In order to heal and grow, a client will progress when they have the awareness, insight, ability and motivation to engage in therapy by being open to discuss their life challenges and put the effort in to make positive and healthy choices. Progress takes an open mind and patience to shift prior patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to become the best versions of ourselves.

Somatic Science™ uses the scientific method and metacognition to greatly reduce or minimize unhappiness (developmental trauma). We incorporate SE™, the polyvagal theory, parts-work and relational dynamics to this end. In this view, unhappiness is simply being uncomfortable with oneself most or all of the time. It results from adverse childhood experiences (ACE) that cause developmental or persistent trauma. Happiness is simply the absence of suffering - peace, calm and equanimity. The Somatic Science™ approach is goal-oriented and non-pathologizing.

Maybe it feels like no one understands. Maybe it feels like no one cares. Maybe it feels like life is too much. Maybe you just need someone to listen, or guide, with love. Here we are.

Are you a woman feeling sad, anxious, or just not yourself? Do you overthink the past? Worry too much about the future? Reach for quick fixes that don’t work? Or do you ignore the problem and tell yourself that eventually, things will change? Your sad thoughts and anxious feelings zap your energy. Unfortunately, your quick fixes only cause more painful struggles, and distancing yourself from the problem only worsens things. There is a reason for your sadness, worry, dependency, and detachment. Reaching out for help is the courageous first step toward finding relief and a solution.

Relying on more than 15 years of clinical experience, I treat depression, anxiety, and addictions, among other issues. While I utilize evidence-based treatments, I practice from a client-centered perspective. My approach rests on compassion, as I fundamentally practice from a humanistic slant. I go to great lengths to avoid the type of stigmatizing language that especially plagues the addiction industry. There are no "addicts."
