I am trained in somatic psychology, psychodynamic psychotherapy, applied behavior analysis, neuropsychological assessment, and QEEG neurofeedback.
I help people who seek improved interpersonal relationships, enhanced brain function, nervous system regulation, spiritual guidance, and diagnostic clarification. You may have experienced a loss, a trauma, a transition, or an unexpected life upheaval. My job is to walk with you in the darkness and shine a light, so we may find the way through together. Whether you are seeking an assessment for diagnostic questions, or a longer therapeutic relationship to allow deeper self-exploration, I am happy to join you in the work. I am highly motivated to work with individuals that identify as part of the LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse communities.

I believe that relationships are the cornerstone to mental wellness. They are the greatest source of pain, growth and healing. Because of this, I see my role as a therapist as an active relational partner in a client’s process toward change. I hold genuine curiosity that drives me to dive deep into each client on a fundamental level. I hold strong value for each person’s story and I have found that telling your story is often where healing begins. I strive to create a safe space that invites you to face the dark places of your story, to highlight your resilience and cultivate empowerment.

The work you and I will do together is focused on your goals and needs and capitalizes on your strengths. My assessment process takes into account the biological, psychological, social, emotional, spiritual, and cultural aspects of your life. Once that assessment is completed, you and I will explore the issues and needs that you are trying to manage by utilizing a "motivational interviewing" approach. We then work to discover the maladaptive behaviors and coping mechanisms; and explore healthy, productive, and strengths-based strategies for getting these needs met.

Somatic Therapists

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
