The process of change and healing is challenging. Healing is hardly a singular upwards track and in fact, there are multiple ups and downs. Healing is an adventure that takes us outside of our comfort zone and our ‘norm’ to find self love and show up as our authentic selves in all areas of our lives. We step outside of the standards and experiences we thought were protecting us and in actuality, they were our survival mechanisms that are no longer functional for us through our healing process. We may feel defeated or isolated when we feel stuck. My experience has shown me that people are resilient and able to heal and grow.

Often, it’s too much to think, be in your head and deal with toxic relationships. Then, in thinking or feeling, or a pattern of behavior or choices that are ultimately harmful. This can lead to a feeling of heaviness and oppression about the future, allow yourself the freedom to imagine a future filled with possibilities and opportunities. I will help you unpack the history of the problematic behavior and help you see how you actually feel about it. I intend to help you better understand the motivation underneath the patterns of thinking and behaviors that make you feel trapped and overwhelmed.

I have had the pleasure of working with all age groups for over 30 years. Need help with your kids? Parenting education and training are important issues in my practice. In general, important goals in therapy include learning how to make the best decisions for oneself in day-to-day life and in developing basic problem solving strategies. Often, significant change can be made simply through the process of education and awareness, offered in a caring and compassionate environment. I use EFT in my practice to maximize symptom relief and minimize the need for extended time in therapy.

Life can be challenging. Current world events may be adding to your daily life stresses and bring up feelings of hopelessness, fear, anger, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, feeling overwhelmed and/or stuck. Additionally, we may carry the weight of unprocessed trauma that can affect our daily ability to function as well as how we interact in our relationships. Some common symptoms of unprocessed trauma include emotional dysregulation, low self worth, lack of insight, and people pleasing tendencies. We may find it difficult to connect with others, want to isolate, or be disappointed in our ability to show up how we want to.

I believe that so many of us want to not only work through or cope with our pain and suffering, but also want to move towards self discovery, find meaning in our lives, and find peace. My approach is eclectic, based in moving towards finding a life worth living and building insight into the unknown parts of yourself, often exploring patterns you may constantly find yourself re-enacting. This may include behavioral therapies, emotion focused, or expressive work with a psychodynamic approach. As a dance-movement therapist, we may even explore the mind body connection through experientials together.
