"As a person originally trained in psychodynamics, I care greatly about the experiences and relationships that have shaped you. I am currently perusing more training in Jungian/depth psychology, which means I am greatly interested in the unconscious and how it reveals itself through dreams, spontaneous visions and creative endeavors. Of primary focus, in my work with clients, is the therapeutic relationship. It is here that our patterns of relating often reveal themselves. Through the safe container of therapy, I invite my clients into new ways of being that invite more creativity, flexibility and deeper relationships."

"I specialize in trauma, PTSD, the “inner critic,” low self-esteem, making life change, and adults abused as children. With Somatic Psychotherapy, EMDR, and other mindfulness-based modalities, we can work together to address and resolve traumatic memories so they no longer block your life potential. Unprocessed traumatic memories can get “stuck” in the body’s nervous system, and can influence how we live our lives in the present. If you’ve noticed yourself having exaggerated responses to everyday life stressors, or feeling paralyzed to make change, it’s possible you’re responding from old, automatic survival mechanisms. "
