SENSORIMOTOR Psychotherapy, a somatic approach aims to treat unresolved trauma symptoms.
Hi, I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I offer a 20 minute free telephone or zoom consultation for you to decide if we are a comfortable therapeutic fit. The relationship between a client and therapist is essential because safety and collaboration facilitates insight and trust and a feeling of non-judgement. My hope is to help guide you with insight and coping strategies to learn new ways to handle situations to the best of your abilities. Therapy can help individuals, couples & families strengthen their connections, improve communication, and develop more secure and fulfilling relationships.

Beyond traditional talk therapy, I also specialize in the following cutting edge therapeutic techniques: EMDR, somatic psychotherapy (Trauma Resiliency Model or TRM), Jungian influenced art psychotherapy, and semi-hypnotic visualizations.
I specialize in non-monogamous, kink, sex worker, and LGBTQ communities. Growth occurs in an atmosphere of respect, compassion and a belief in the human capacity for healing, change and reparation. My approach emphasizes insight, emotional healing, and empowerment to help you reach you highest potential and develop a more gratifying life. Couples/Relationships: Both Imago and Emotionally Focused Therapy heavily influence my work to encourage the strengthening of trust, mutual respect, understanding, intimacy and love. We will work together to untangle confusing thoughts, feelings, and behavioral patterns to rediscover your capacity to make meaningful choices that are right for you or your relationship.

Drawing upon my 20+ years as a life coach and intuitive healer, I integrate mindfulness, expressive arts, and somatic , transpersonal and psychodynamic therapeutic approaches.
Creating a safe, caring, non-judgmental environment in which to engage in a deep, authentic healing process is my intention. Anxiety, depression, and other painful issues, often have their roots in developmental wounding and/or trauma. I help you get to the causes of your pain and patterns that no longer serve you. Mindfulness and somatic resourcing allow you to experience relief (and rewire your brain) while safely navigating and processing the past. I specialize in anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relationships, career, self-esteem, and auto-immune, pain and other somatic challenges. I offer individual, couples therapy, groups, workshops, and retreats.

As a Senior Faculty of Trauma Resource Institute, I begin with teaching somatic skills.
Using a resiliency-focused approach, it doesn’t have to be an ordeal to heal. In fact, neuroscience has shown this is not the best way to work on oneself. Rather, focusing on regulating the nervous system using simple wellness skills and education about the brain and body connection can pave the way toward increased daily well-being as well as lay groundwork for resolving trauma. We can't always prevent stressors, and many of us have been through challenges or traumas in childhood that make it difficult to weather life's changes. Together, we will co-create the best course of treatment to help you live more fully in each moment.

Somatic practices to "retrain" the brain & nervous system are a staple in my therapy practice.
We live in a complex multicultural world, in that complexity lies the intersection of our identity as individuals and the systemic oppression many women and people of color face. I am a mixed race, lesbian therapist, and I believe many factors negatively impact our ability to seek therapy and heal from small and/or complex trauma. In taking the step to further your healing journey, we work together to understand the impact trauma has on the body and the false narratives we may have learned in order to cope & learn ways to manage persistent stress, anxiety, PTSD, depression, low self-esteem, codependency, grief and loss,

I use a blend of talk and somatic therapy, art, play, and mindfulness to support clients to reach their therapeutic goals and cultivate healing and wholeness in their lives.
Hello! If you have found your way here, chances are you are experiencing life challenges that feel confusing, difficult, overwhelming even. These uncertain times can trigger issues such as high stress, anxiety, or depression, and life can sometimes be hard to navigate alone. Getting the right support at the right time is an important step on that journey. I provide a supportive space for adults, children, and families to unravel old patterns, learn to engage more authentically with themselves and others, and create space and freedom in their psyche from which they can make clearer choices and cultivate fulfilling relationships.

Life can be challenging, that's for sure! I understand how emotional pain can manifest as depression, anxiety, withdrawal in intimate relationships, addiction, to name just a few. Finding meaning within that struggle can help transform how we hold onto that experience. I will engage with you on this journey, helping you to develop a more compassionate relationship within yourself. Creating a more positive inner life can impact your outer world - in relationships, parenting, work, and self expression.

Everyone can enjoy a satisfying life of love, work and play. However, we may find ourselves in personal patterns, relationships, or with life issues that keep us from living to our fullest. Though circumstances and illness are difficult, our manner of dealing with them determines whether we are happy or sad, engaged or depressed, relaxed or anxious, and even feeling physically unwell or healthy. Trauma and poor coping are often related to our past desperate attempts to take care of ourselves in difficult situations. Through a passionate, humor-filled, authentic journey we can seek to understand and change your life.

Do you feel like life is "too much?" Do you worry, feel anxious, ruminate or sometimes feel paralyzed, frozen or numb? Do you feel panicked, or find yourself drifting off from the task at hand? Do you find it hard to stay present? Or, do you have issues with self esteem? Do you feel insecure, inadequate, doubt yourself, feel "not good enough" or like you don't "measure up?" Or, is your relationship in a "rut", less than fulfilling, or in a "total mess?" For over 30 years, I have been helping people to discover themselves and to grow.
