"Hope, growth, strength, and increased happiness are possible. Taking the first step toward healing and continuing to persevere through adversity requires courage, and you don't have to do it alone. I believe human beings are innately driven toward happiness and health, but difficult experiences, unmet needs, and cognitive distortions can get in the way of this. I want to hear your story and help you overcome obstacles, experience greater happiness, regain a sense of control of your life, and free yourself from self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. "

"You feel like you’re walking through life in a fog. You’ve gone through all the motions, and done all the “right things,” to get to this point in life, and yet it still doesn’t feel right. There’s so much that you’re hiding on the inside, so much that you want to get out, but it’s scary to do that. The thoughts and inner critic are so loud, that it’s hard to imagine them not being there. We’ve learned so many survival skills to get us to this point in life, and they’ve worked. They’ve gotten you here and that’s amazing! But are they still serving you? What place do they have in your life now? "

Becoming a mother is monumental, life-changing and sometimes disappointing. Nearly 1 in 5 mothers experience Anxiety and Depression after the birth/adoption of a baby. It is the most common complication post birth. You don't have to be alone with your experience. I will be with you and help you find your feet again."

I will help enhance your innate ability to break patterns, utilizing cognitive, nervous & energetic methods. For instance, you have had a car accident before. You feel anxious whenever you see cars on the street. This means that the car accident is associated with the anxiety. I will help disconnect the anxiety from the car accident while rebuilding positive experiences in you. You will gradually re-associate the car accident with the positive experiences, transforming the old pattern."

"We often find ourselves and bodies, on the path towards health after overwhelming experiences, trauma, grief or loss. Re-igniting our inner-fire and natural emotional balance can understandably be a challenge. Trauma-informed somatic psychotherapy can help! I take my role as a therapist, one who supports the client On their journey, as a facilitator of a sacred collaboration. I conduct therapy with an intention to process and move trauma (anxiety, depression and grief accompanying it) in order to restore balance between the mind, body, and spirit and reignite the internal fire."

"While I do offer talk therapy, I also blend psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy and somatic therapy. Expressive arts therapy can look like anything from me having you choose images (rather than using words) to describe your experience, to drama therapy techniques by which I facilitate you having a conversation with a "part" of yourself that continues a frustrating habit. Somatic work means your body is an integral part of our process. This can mean tracking bodily shifts and sensations together. It can also involve standing practices that reflect back what your body (you) are doing, as opposed to what you think you are doing. "
