Announcement icon I am continuing to offer tele therapy/video-conferencing during the pandemic.
I have 26 years of experience as a body focused psychotherapist specializing in shock and developmental trauma, attachment and relationship issues. My approach is empowering &compassionate, & gently takes you beyond difficulties into your wholeness. I've been a Somatic Experiencing (SE) Practitioner for 18 years and can help you calm your Autonomic Nervous System as well as processing relational issues, trauma, grief, etc. I assist in training therapists in SE as well as helping underserved populations worldwide through my nonprofit, Lotus Circle International.
My background in Yoga, body-focused therapies, spirituality, and mindfulness has helped me develop a keen awareness of the subtle body and allows me to help clients transform and integrate stress and trauma within a strength based approach that also ignites the inner wisdom essential for growth and spiritual development.
I have seen it all and am very nonjudgemental. I work with most traumas including birth/attachment traumas, anxiety/panic/helplessness, sexual abuse, child abuse, medical trauma, abandonment, falls and other accidents, as well as development traumas. I am honored to be a guide and support you along the way.
