Together with my clients, I create a safe and supportive space to explore the issues where they feel stuck and unable to move forward in their lives. From a client-centered approach we uncover core false beliefs, attachment patterns and other difficulties often at the root of suffering, which blocks many from living a life of inner peace and connection to others. I help facilitate the nurturing of internal strengths within the person to cultivate acceptance, healing and growth. My focus is on eating disorders, substance abuse, self-harm and other maladaptive behaviors, including underlining issues of anxiety, depression and trauma.
I am trained in Somatic Experiencing which offers the opportunity to engage and resolve, in a slow and supported way, automatic and patterned responses to anxiety, overwhelm or anger and relax into a growing sense of calm and ease. SE offers a new experience to sensations, emotions and thoughts contradicting those of fear and helplessness.
I have been in the eating disorder and addiction fields for over fifteen (15) years working closely with some of the pioneers in mental health treatment. Being in recovery myself, I understand the courage it takes to move towards vulnerability and honor the therapeutic space created for self-exploration and healing.
