Through somatic therapy one can learn how the mind-body forms and interacts with specific environments. It is from this place that a vast amount of untapped resources can be found and the innate wisdom of the body resides. Allow me to support you in connecting to this place within yourself and disentangling from your habits and barriers to live a fuller life. We will work together to analyze and change old patterns to form new habits. I am certified in animal-assisted therapy and work with a variety of furry co-therapists. I am kink-positive and work with consensual non-monogamy. I look forward to supporting your journey!

My focus and passion is sexual health and I work with people of all ages. Sexuality is an important source of identity, connection and pleasure, but I also recognize the ways in which shame, trauma, and limited/unhelpful learning about sex contributes to a lot of common sexual problems and conflict in relationships. I support clients with a variety of goals including improving your sex life, dealing with sexual pain, working through sexual “dysfunctions,” exploring sexual preferences, and dealing with out-of-control sexual behavior. I also work with parents, teens and families on issues related to sexuality.

Restoring balance and healing from trauma really is possible. Often, our life stressors point us to where we need to do that healing. I specialize in trauma - specifically, using brain-based psychotherapies of Brainspotting and EMDR to treat anxiety/depression, PTSD, past traumas/current triggers, abuse, grief/loss, birth/pregnancy, and chronic pain, among others. Together, we'll explore origins of negative self-talk, impacts of stressful experiences, and relational issues to create a roadmap for treatment. This often includes self-compassion, grounding practices, healing the nervous system, and processing self-limiting beliefs.

We are multifaceted and complex selves, and all of us prefer some aspects/representations of our selves over others. When our disapproval for some of our reactions becomes too strong or too global, when it becomes impossible to think of ourselves in our preferred light, living can become very difficult and very confusing. I work to facilitate your exploration of scary or disowned reactions, to promote your acceptance of less preferred parts of yourself. My hope is that as you accept more aspects of yourself, your relationships with others will become less confusing, more intimate, and more fulfilling.

My practice is based on the premise that any issue presented in therapy has deep emotional and psychological roots. At times these roots are recognized; mostly, not. The clients who achieve the highest degree of success in terms of resolution of presenting issues, personal growth, life satisfaction, and relationship enhancement are those who are willing to overcome resistance and emotional discomfort in order to root out the painful, dysfunctional origins of their presented issues, The courage, persistence, and resilience displayed during their therapeutic journey serve them well.

Have you ever had that moment when suddenly you see a situation in a new light and your perspective changes for the better? My aim with therapy is to facilitate that "a-ha" moment for yourself within the struggle that is bringing you into therapy. By providing a validating and trusting space we can be curious about emotions without shaming or shutting them down. We can explore the story we tell ourselves and the meaning we give our lives. Sometimes we can't break out of certain behaviors/anxieties and need an outside, non-judgmental observer to help us see our patterns because we are "in it" and too close to see the big picture.
