"My practice is with clients seeking emotional well-being, a deeper sense of themselves, and an improved ability to cope with the distress that accompanies life's challenges and problems. My approach is shaped by the principle that we all have a basic need to feel safe and to know that we matter. My work is informed and guided by the knowledge that a significant number of people dealing with emotional/mental health problems, and many of those who use alcohol and/or drugs, have experienced some form of childhood or adult abuse, trauma, neglect, invalidation, or chaos."

"If you long for connection with others but relational trauma is still getting in the way (even after lots of talk therapy), I invite you to try body-centered work with me. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I guide clients to follow what's happening on a moment-to-moment basis and help them finally find protection, safety, security and nurturing. This work specifically targets traumatic patterns in the nervous system and gently, compassionately creates more space for ease and connection in relationship."

"It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss!"

Throughout life, I have learned lessons about the gifts we receive when we take the chance to talk honestly with trusted individuals.
