"We live in Paradise but I realize at times even Paradise feels difficult. Looking for a therapist can be as challenging as the reasons we are seeking one. I approach therapy as a team, working together to find solutions, work through challenges, look at your strengths in an effort to bring some solace back into your life and get you living again, not just surviving. My style is primarily interactive, I work through the eyes of curiosity and I like to use humor and try to interject some fun into our therapy sessions, realizing how heavy it could be to work through your stuff."

"Life! It's perplexing and mysterious. Challenging and full of unexpected turns. Our fast-paced world presents us with demands that stress our coping abilities and make even the simplest of things seem overwhelming. But life can also be full of contentment and connection. When we acknowledge and explore what is upsetting, we have the potential to expand self-awareness and create a circle of compassion for ourselves and others. This leads to discovering our innate strength and resilience so that we are able to move forward, navigating choices that support the life we want to live."

I use talk therapy, imagery, metaphor, hypnosis, EMDR, Positive Psychology, and Sensorimotor. Often clients report being disinterested in a formerly distressing topic after treatment.

"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 and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and I specialize in understanding your nervous system. Trauma is destabilizing and leads to nervous system dysregulation and a sense of the loss of self. I incorporate SE to facilitate a sense of boundary, containment, and orientation to the present moment. I use a non-pathologizing perspective and view symptoms within the context of experience. I've found SE to be useful for individuals, couples, and families."
