"Do you want more ease, joy, and meaning in your life? Therapy can help. Aside from having the obvious goal of relieving anxiety, confusion, or pain and suffering, therapy can profoundly enrich your life. The more we befriend, understand, and accept ourselves just as we are, the more we can respond to the challenges that come our way from choice rather than habitual reaction. To facilitate this I offer an openhearted, authentic presence along with mindfulness-based tools that promote self-awareness, self-compassion, and the process of healing."

I am a holistic psychotherapist and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and I specialize in understanding your nervous system. Trauma is destabilizing and leads to nervous system dysregulation and a sense of the loss of self. I incorporate SE to facilitate a sense of boundary, containment, and orientation to the present moment. I use a non-pathologizing perspective and view symptoms within the context of experience. I've found SE to be useful for individuals, couples, and families."

"Why go to therapy or pursue inner work? It's a great question because the seemingly simple act of creating a weekly ritual to reflect on oneself is actually a subversive thing to do. Something you discover may reorient your life.
