I work mostly with adults, with an emphasis on recovery from emotional, physical and sexual abuse or neglect, recovery from abuse trauma and post-traumatic growth. Trauma survivors often develop creative coping strategies, including dissociation, in order to tolerate abuse and to develop internal resources. These coping strategies are critical to survival and are well-respected in our therapeutic relationship. I also work with circumstances where there is an imbalance of power and lack of recognition of the individual's right to respect and dignity. I strongly believe that every person has the right to be treated with respect in all aspects of life.

Life is hard. It is also beautiful and rich with complexity. At times, we can find ourselves stuck and overwhelmed, confused, fearful, angry and grieving. It is human to struggle. We all need support in navigating challenges and healing wounds. As a body inclusive therapist, my intention is to help you expand your awareness with embodied compassion. From this awareness comes the power to transform. Together, we will explore the thoughts and feelings that create your reality, and with care and humor uncover possibilities. Many struggles are symptoms of a stressful, fast-paced world. I offer a soft place to land in a crazy world.
