I use a sophisticated combination of somatic , movement and mindfulness techniques along with traditional psychotherapy approaches to heal symptoms, resolve the underlying causes and to improve health and happiness, with your work, your home and your sport.
I work with both athletes and non-athletes to use the combined power of body and mind to improve symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress and the related physical health symptoms that can include immune, gut and skin conditions. (Conditions such as Fibromyalgia, RA, Psoriasis, IBS, Lupus and many others can be partially caused, flared or prolonged due to psychological stress).

I interweave EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, attachment repair, and mindfulness to regulate the nervous system.
“Why can’t I move past this?” “Will I ever feel better?” “Is there any help for me?” While trauma may be a painful inevitability of being human, it can provide an opportunity for growth with help and support. My path to healing and wholeness came after a particularly dark time in my life. I became a somatic trauma therapist because I found that traditional talk therapy too often attempts to rationalize what seems to be irrational. The fact is, our nervous systems react in ways that make perfect sense in the face of traumatic experiences.

Using gentle, accelerated tools proven to treat trauma such as EMDR, somatic therapy, mindfulness and attachment repair, you can integrate mind, heart, body and feel good.
These are such intense and overwhelming times. We are all grieving. Before 2020 maybe you had some anxiety or a history of trauma but overall you were functioning and feeling OK without ongoing therapy. Or despite all you do to take care of yourself, you were experiencing quite a bit of anxiety and stress, struggling with feelings of shame, anger or self-hatred for a very long time. Since 2020 and that's happened your nervous system is on overload and everything feels overwhelming, exhausting, scary. The existential pain you’ve struggled with is back and real and being felt by you and people all over the world.

I utilize techniques from my trauma informed yoga background & provide practical skills to begin the process of inner-standing within yourself while utilizing compassionate and mindful, somatic based practices suited for you.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Lost? Struggling with connecting with your emotions or intuition? I help empower clients who have struggled developing their “voice” and provide them with a safe place to express themselves & explore who they are. We work to rewrite a new narrative about themselves when stepping into their Highest Self and leaving old patterns behind. Together we will process the changes unfolding, which may entail grieving of old patterns that are no longer serving us. Through this, I provide loving support and collaboratively discuss behavioral techniques to invite into your life as part of your process of growth.

I work through verbal counsel, Somatic Experiencing, touch, hypnotherapy & breathwork.
Life calls to us through circumstances, symptoms, intuitions, hopes, and dreams - there is great power in acknowledging these cues. Our challenges are opportunities for even deeper healing and fulfillment. I work in modalities that listen for what is asking to heal and which believe in your ability to do so. Anxiety, addiction, self-esteem, purpose, and meaning are just a few things it can help. If you know that change is possible, but are not sure how, I would love to help you along your journey. There is great power in bringing together the conscious and subconscious; action and compassion.

Psychotherapy is an opportunity to feel better, to learn what makes you happy, and to become your most genuine and creative self. As a safe and empathetic environment, therapy can help reduce symptoms like anxiety and depression. By jointly exploring unconscious forces in decision making and the function of our nervous system on behavior, my goal is to help improve your relationships and encourage growth towards your specific goals. I strive to incorporate a blend of body and psyche using somatic experiencing and depth/psychodynamic psychology. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and addiction.

I use individual psychotherapy, EMDR,* mindfulness meditation, and somatic therapy in the self-healing mind approach.
I am interested in treating people whose potential is hindered by negative concepts of themselves imprinted in childhood (through traumatic experiences or neglect of basic emotional needs) and who frequently suffer from symptoms like chronic depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I am committed to helping these individuals attain a sense of self that brings them happiness and fulfillment. My basic perspective is that the human mind possesses the capacity to heal itself, if guided in the right way. I have explored various methods and approaches to helping the mind restore its basic wholeness.

I have a Master's in Depth Psychology with Somatic Studies Specialization and a Master's in Counseling Psychology and licensed by the state of California as an LMFT.
The process of psychotherapy is a deeply personal, introspective undertaking. Together we will recognize the wounds, trauma, and injustices that have befallen you and begin the process of remedy, integration, and repair. In this emotionally safe harbor you can press up against your edges, your incongruencies, and your discomfort. Your healing will begin with a felt-sense of attunement and an authentic experience of being witnessed, seen, and heard. Your honed insight coupled with my empathic attention, and eventual interpretation and analysis, are all harnessed as agents of change. You can remove your maladaptive coping mechanisms!

I am a LMFT and Somatic Experiencing practitioner with over 18 years experience working with adults, families, and adolescents. Using a combination of Somatic Experiencing, Psychodynamic and Relational Therapy, I focus on helping you to become more self-aware in both mind and body, in order to alleviate uncomfortable symptoms you might be feeling. We will address areas you may be feeling stuck, discover underlying causes, and learn ways to relieve these symptoms from the body and better manage the thoughts in our mind. Clients have told me, "You've taught me a more patient way of thinking."

I have expertise in working with individuals struggling with childhood trauma and trauma-related symptoms such as grief, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relational conflict. I believe every client is unique and deserves to be listened to and understood in an empathetic way. I am passionate about creating a safe, kind, collaborative and judgment-free space where clients can attain new insights, experience new feelings, and find a renewed sense of physical and mental well-being.

I am trained in Narrative Therapy, Relational Gestalt therapy, and Somatic approaches.
I offer support for individuals who are feeling stuck and looking to foster joy through better relationships. Together, we’ll build greater awareness around anxieties, fears, triggers, or conflicts that get in the way of connection with others. We’ll work to identify your needs and further develop skills to communicate them. We'll spend time calling attention to beliefs, "shoulds" and narratives that might no longer serve you. We'll find the things that get in the way of self-compassion, and unpack them together.

Life can feel overwhelming and unmanageable at times. Often those feelings can seep into your relationships and daily life, creating conflict and confusion. You can begin to question your worth and value to yourself and others, and you can begin to see everything through the lens of those feelings. The ways in which you try to cope with those feelings are often linked to experiences in your past, and they are likely keeping you from creating the fulfilling and meaningful present you desperately want.

Things are crazy right now, huh? Our world is in an extreme state of uncertainty which can tax our existing coping strategies, shed light on unhelpful habits, and challenge us with fundamental questions about ourselves and our place in the world. I work with clients wanting to lean into these issues and offer a warm presence as they explore what’s happening underneath. Typically, I work with those struggling with trauma, depression, and/or anxiety, wanting to untangle the influences of their past. I also offer support to those that are dabbling with psychedelics by providing risk reduction and integration.

The way we process and live our lives, especially the way in which we respond to life's difficult challenges, is often informed by painful experiences from our past, and unresolved issues. I will help you find the inner resources you need to recover, understand yourself better, and create the changes that will improve your well being. We all have the potential to heal, grow, and be successful in our lives. It is this potential that provides hope for all of us to overcome pain and adversity.

I'm deeply empathetic with an ability to be with clients through their most difficult emotions. I believe processing feelings can facilitate rapid growth. However, my approach is eclectic because change can be initiated in different ways. For example, emotional processing can shift feelings as well as thoughts and behaviors. Alternatively, reevaluating dysfunctional thoughts can improve our outlook and actions. Exploring different behaviors can permanently change one's attitude or release repressed feelings. So, I'm a client centered, empathetic therapist, comfortable working on deep feelings as well as assisting clients in finding concrete solutions and effective new behaviors.

At times, we experience painful feelings of guilt and shame, or think "I am not good enough". I specialize in helping individuals with severe sexual abuse & trauma. My primary approach is called EMDR, a mind and body therapy which can help you cope more effectively with painful emotions. When a person experiences mild to severe trauma such as abuse, divorce, job stress, or a life-threatening illness, the brain cannot always process the event as it should. As a result, trauma can have a lasting effect and can interfere with your relationships, job and coping with everyday life. EMDR treatment can help move toward healing.
