Life is harder than you ever imagined it would be. Whether it's your painful past that keeps showing up in your present, difficulty in completing tasks and staying focus, or the anxiety and stress from things that are out of your control, you just can't find your way out of the struggle. Maybe it's your child or teenager who is struggling and needs someone else to help them find their joy and peace. A positive change is possible. Hope can be realized and joy can be a regular part of your life again.
Using your body's own natural healing process, I use Run Therapy, EMDR, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, play-based techniques, and Somatic Experiencing to help you rewrite your story in a way that empowers you and your family to meet your goals, build resilience, and live well.
Your body, spirit, and mind are ready to do more than just cope and manage. You are ready to be empowered into living a life filled with inner peace, incredible adventures, and a joyful strength that takes you wherever you want to go. Begin your journey toward true healing right now by calling today to set up your free consultation.

I often use body and brain-based therapeutic techniques in my practice, enhancing and intentionally using the body's own natural healing capabilities. With EMDR, Run Therapy, or Accelerated Resolution Therapy, in combination with somatic based practices, you will no longer be triggered by past memories and will learn how to retrain your body to a default state of relaxation.
