About

Clients who most appreciate working with me are seeking an integrative mind-body therapy experience. Holding a safe, nonjudgmental, and inclusive space for you to "unpack" and rewire, my approach is considered holistic and collaborative. I work "bottom up" to increase body awareness and regulation in the nervous system, which can facilitate profound healing and change. For those seeking deeper regulation and more sustainable wellness, I offer nature-based healing interventions.
I have specialized training in traumatic stress and stress injuries and offer a gentle but direct body-mind and nature-focused approach to integrative healing: Somatic Experiencing, Polyvagal Theory, EMDR, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga and Nature-based therapy. I'm certified in Ecopsychology and Somatic Experiencing (2022). I work with highly sensitive people.
My approach reaches beyond traditional talk therapy for healing mind-body-spirit. I am here to support you. Together we will navigate an individualized path reclaiming your life vitality, practicing wholeness over perfection and nourishment over comfort. It takes enormous acts of courage to navigate your way toward holistic health. You are not alone.
