Our pursuit of a good life can be deeply affected by the current world situations. We may be struggling not only in our personal lives but also by difficult worldly events such as climate change, the economy, retirement, health care and many more. When the world doesn't feel safe, it's more difficult to tolerate the emotions, sensations, and thoughts arising inside of us, making us turn toward old coping mechanisms This will not heal us. We need to build the confidence to be with and understand our inner experiences no matter what! This is our pathway to truly heal and live a more peaceful and meaningful life in the world.

Do you feel "stuck" with repeating cycles of painful emotions, thoughts, or behaviors that keep showing up in your life and getting in the way of how you would rather feel, think and behave? This stuckness shows up as depression, fears & phobias, negative beliefs about yourself, repeating relationship problems, inability or limited ability to perform something you want to do or stop doing something that is getting in the way of achieving the life you want. These and other problems can be resolved. You do not have to live with this "old stuff" getting in your way.

I have seen that much of the pain in my clients stems from the emotional or physical stress that is too much for the nervous system. Every person’s experience of events can be different; therefore, the same event/emotion/stress has unique impacts on the person. I approach my work with clients in a very individual way, listening to who they are by clearly understanding both their intellectual and their emotional aspects, and have a strong steady belief in the client's own inner wisdom.

I specialize in trauma, PTSD, the “inner critic,” low self-esteem, making life change, and adults abused as children. With Somatic Psychotherapy, EMDR, and other mindfulness-based modalities, we can work together to address and resolve traumatic memories so they no longer block your life potential. Unprocessed traumatic memories can get “stuck” in the body’s nervous system, and can influence how we live our lives in the present. If you’ve noticed yourself having exaggerated responses to everyday life stressors, or feeling paralyzed to make change, it’s possible you’re responding from old, automatic survival mechanisms.

I work with adults who are too hard on themselves, especially parents and people experiencing chronic pain. Do you feel like you "should" be doing more/better? Do you feel guilty when you take time for yourself? Do you have mixed feelings about parenthood or your relationship? Learning how to treat ourselves with compassion, accepting our negative emotions as well as the positive ones, and balancing the needs of others with our own, is something many of us have to learn as adults. These are areas I help my clients with daily. You don't need to struggle with these issues alone.
