About

My approach is rooted in the belief that how we relate to ourselves mirrors how we experience life and develop relationships. Not many of us were taught how to compassionately attend to our painful feelings, critical thoughts, or impulsive behaviors. Instead, we may have been scolded, shamed, or sent away for showing big feelings such as anger or sadness, praised for being self-reliant, or withdrawn from by parents who did not have the capacity to be with our feelings. When we can begin to shift from judgment and avoidance of the parts of ourselves that we may not approve of to curiosity; healing can begin.
I work somatically, which means relating to the body. What this means is I guide clients to understand how their nervous system creates the foundation for how they consciously and subconsciously move through the world. I help my clients acknowledge how this foundation was formed and teach them how to bring regulation and safety back to their system.
Often I hear from clients, who have been in talk therapy for many years, that although they cognitively understand their trauma and why symptoms such as anxiety and depression exist, are still struggling. If you would like to try a different approach, please reach out for a consultation. I am accepting new clients!
