Children and adolescents have many challenges today. A strong, supportive family environment is the key to promoting health in our young people. I am dedicated to providing guidance and help to make the process easier for the family. Trauma and behavioral issues are my specialty. It helps to have a safe and non judgmental listener if you are struggling with life issues. It is my goal to be that person as you work through the difficulties you may be experiencing.

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.
