Reaching out is not always easy and it's the first step towards creating change. I have always believed we work to achieve success and happiness in the best ways we know how. There are times in our lives where we find ourselves short on solutions, or are ready to move forward. This is where I can be of help. I encourage everyone to talk with several therapists to get a feel if this is the right person for you. After talking with someone do you feel understood, do you feel that they can help.

Are you suffering from the effects of trauma in your life? Are you finding that talk therapy alone is not shifting patterns of mood and behavior? I am a holistic psychotherapist with specialized training in Somatic Experiencing and the Neuro-Affective Relational Model. You may feel as though you don't know who you are any more, that life has become burdensome, or maybe you have the sense that you were never really your authentic self to begin with. Perhaps you experience physiological and behavioral symptoms such as addiction, overwhelm, and isolation. This loss of connection to self/other is indicative of trauma. I can help you.

I have been active in mental health care for over 40 years, currently specializing in PTSD and other trauma issues. I developed a treatment protocol, called Personalized Embodied Rhythm Coupling (PERC), which is designed to meet your individual needs. “Embodied” means that treatment will help you feel “at home” and “safe” in your body, being in your body in the moment to feel all its emotional, sensory, and physical sensations. You will be connected to, and accept, all parts of your body. You will be able to self-soothe when feeling anxious or fearful.

Therapy is much more than just "feeling better." It is about the process of understanding how you think, how you feel, and how you can discover the resiliency you have within yourself. As a therapist, it is always an honor to have my clients place their trust in me as I watch them grow. I work with issues including depression, anxiety disorders, cutting, and suicidal ideation. I also love to use my art therapy credential into sessions when appropriate because let's be honest, sitting on a couch talking about feelings is not for everyone!
