I can help you heal from past or current Trauma, and help reduce Trauma's often disturbing, intrusive and long lasting effects. I also work with individuals to help manage anxiety, depression, stress, emotional eating, relationship problems, abandonment fears, or grief and loss. My approach is holistic and mind / body oriented. I combine traditional talk therapy with mindfulness and embodiment based techniques.

You are living a daily battle in your head about what you can eat, how much you should exercise, if you are worthy of taking up space. You are consumed by counting calories and by the negative voice inside that tells you, you’ll never be good enough or thin enough, smart enough or pretty enough. You are fed up with how the society/culture tells you how you should look and feel and behave. Your behaviors have you feeling exhausted and depleted and you wonder how you can go on another day. Others may think you have it all together on the outside, but the mental torture inside is killing you and feel like your life is shrinking.

Any of us can get "stuck in a rut" and one key to pulling out of it is learning to respond effectively to life's stressors, rather than react negatively to them. My background in attachment theory, cognitive behavioral strategies, mindfulness and EMDR, allows me to successfully help those struggling with anxiety, depression and trauma. I also enjoying helping people cope with life transitions and relationship problems. I love working with clients who are motivated for change but whose inner critic can be fierce, often limiting them from experiencing joy and contentment.

I help empower sensitive, empathic adults to recognize and honor their own needs and voices. You might have noticed yourself saying yes to others when you wanted to say no, or a tendency to take care of others, sacrificing yourself. Perhaps you haven’t even recognized your own needs many times, being so attuned to others. I offer expertise, guidance and support for you to better recognize. understand, honor, and tend to your unique needs and your valued relationships, and navigate these challenges according to your own Inner Compass.

There are times when you may find life is too messy, too painful and you feel too alone with all of it. Therapy provides a time and place to share your inner struggles, fears and anxieties while receiving support, insight, perspective and new coping skills. The process allows you to heal and move forward with a stronger sense of who you've been, who you are now and who you are becoming.

Individuation entails being congruent, authentic and more in harmony with all of life.

Although I live in both CA and MI, I offer tele-therapy and phone sessions so do not hesitate to contact me if you live outside these areas.
