"One thing I did not learn growing up was how to understand what was really going on for me. I spent years not knowing how to listen to my own feelings or what to do once I found them. And I am still learning. A little more all the time. I have spent the past decade studying how to become aware of the subtle signals in a situation and how to follow them in a way that shows who we really are and what we really want. The learning and unlearning this takes has become my devotion. Being with others and doing this together had become something I love. "

I offer an alliance to sensitively and respectfully engage life circumstances and inner realities. I prefer to take time and not rush toward superficial solutions. I'm one who would gravitate toward your pain, rather than deflect or minimize it. Therapy is about many things, often our emotional suffering and the possibility of transforming it.

"Why rock climb and do therapy at the same time? Bilateral stimulation is the use of visual, auditory, or tactile external stimuli occurring in a rhythmic side-to-side pattern. It is a core element of eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, a common treatment for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Utilizing traditional talk therapy along side integrating the body is an obvious evolution in trauma recovery. Climbing research is currently confirming it's positive impacts for those seeking treatment for depression, anxiety and trauma."
