My specialty is using somatic approaches "the felt sense" helping the client be in tune with the bodily processes especially when heavy emotions arise.
I am a MFT student trainee. My ideal client would be someone who is going through major life shifts that has created curiosity around their self identity and questions around their confidence in all aspects of life. Someone who struggles with anxiety and depression who does not feel as if they are "enough" and are having difficulties maintaining healthy relationships around them with a partner/s, friends, and family. Their goal would be to feel a sense of security within themselves exploring the stories and patterns that have led them to have these belief systems that are not supporting their best "Self".

I am a traditionally-trained psychotherapist who employs somatic approaches which consider the person's physiology alongside thoughts and feelings.
I view therapy as a search to discover more meaning and satisfaction in life, free from crippling symptoms. Although crisis often drives people into therapy, they often leave with precious opportunites for new life. Energy that had been spent managing problems like anxiety, addiction and depression can be used to create a life of healthy purpose and pleasure. I view my role as providing therapeutic presence to create a safe environment and caring relationship, elements necessary to support one's search for authentic self and healthy self-expression.

Somatic Experiencing (SE), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness are how I practice and help you attain health.
Human beings have an innate capacity towards healing and are unconsciously driven to be better psychologically, even when we think we are at our worst. In other words, we already have all we need to get better, we just need to access it. Naturally, our bodies, minds, and hearts seek equilibrium, peace and ultimately joy; a fully embodied human coherence. Together, in a safe, compassionate, and non judgmental environment we can create positive change for you. My personal goal is to be a safe container for you to explore your internal self, while ultimately helping you reach the goals you aim to achieve in therapy. I truly believe in people and their ability to self actualize, heal, and to live life with happiness and satisfaction.

The cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and somatic approaches that I offer, will help you break free from this cycle.
You wake up exhausted, and defeated. High anxiety, racing thoughts and loneliness overshadow every hint of joy in your life. As your energy plummets, small tasks become huge. Just talking seems like a chore. Irritability and exhaustion are a constant battle. Loved ones complain that you are removed and shutdown. You want to let them in, but it’s hard to trust anyone. It’s become impossible to turn off that negative voice in your head that keeps saying you aren’t doing enough. No one understands. Everything triggers you. The past is tied up with the present, your thoughts are dark, and you’re afraid of losing everything.

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.

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Rumi. I believe we build barriers as an attempt to protect ourselves from childhood and adult relational traumas however, these mind and body defenses are no longer necessary and block us from what we truly want in life; inadvertently causing more suffering than protection. The symptoms of these barriers manifest as depression, anxiety, addiction ,,, as well as physical illness.

EMDR, IFS, and somatic therapies are the main tools I use to help reprocess difficult emotions and free up energy and space in order to connect with purpose and well-being.
Therapy creates an opportunity for real, lasting change. You may be feeling overwhelmed by past burdens and current stressors; or perhaps your life is going in really great directions, yet you’re feeling emotionally lost and disconnected. And maybe you are living with the burdens of a chronic and limiting illness that is overshadowing your life. All of these challenges need some time, some space, and the right tools for getting to the root of those internal struggles. All the healing you need comes from a place inside you that I can help you find.

I take a comprehensive therapeutic approach that helps you regulate your emotions and build your inner strength using therapeutic Mindfulness and somatic work that specifically targets healing our nervous symptom, strengthening our ability for healthy connections, increased resiliency, and inner peace.
IS ANXIETY STEALING YOUR JOY? Do you suffer from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, feelings of loneliness and/or emptiness? Are you struggling with life changes, loss, feelings of hopelessness? Are you fearful about finding/losing love? Do you suffer with feelings of worthlessness or feel incapable of being loved? Healthy connections are a primary need that we all have. Healthy attachments help us regulate our emotions to live a joyful and peaceful life. Sometimes through life experiences, our ability to attach and connect in healthy ways gets disrupted, negatively impacting our lives and our ability to regulate our emotions.

We can work together to cultivate trauma recovery using techniques including polyvagal theory, mindfulness meditation, somatic psychology, and CBT.
Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

I tend to favor drama therapy (the use of creative/performance art forms in sessions), CBT, TF-CBT, Attachment, Narrative, Play Therapy (not just for kids, adults too), DBT, Somatic , and Psychodynamic models.
I tend to think of therapy as tupperware, it’s the container where we can unload what is weighing us down. Our personal backgrounds; ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, (dis)abilities, to name a few, are integral to who we are. These aspects can have a deep impact on the way we view, think of, the world and experience mental health. This is why a multicultural approach lays the foundation for my work with clients. Navigating healing while at the same time still existing within systemic oppression, marginalization, and erasure/assimilation is not easy. This is a safe container to do so.

If you do not like to talk about your problems, biofeedback can help through somatic information and management to become more balanced.
As a life coach I help you to reach your full potential in your business or in your personal life. Biofeedback helps to decrease stress. As a psychologist working with individuals and families I use talk therapy: CBT, DBT, Solution Focused brief therapy or EMDR and ETT, EFT based on the person's choice and comfort level. During my 15 years of praxis I have helped people with anxiety, PTSD, OCD, depression, codependency, sexual, emotional and physical abuse, eating disorder and addictions. Lots of couples regained their love for each other. Teenagers and their parents learnt to solve their problems.
