Announcement icon Due to the contagion of Covid-19, I am conducting sessions online with phone or video.
If you struggle with the effects of a difficult childhood, have an addiction, have had a life-changing accident, or have been involved in an abusive or controlling relationship, you probably aren't able to enjoy your life as much as you would like. Our work will be both a partnership and an exploration, working at your pace. I'm trained as a psychotherapist and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. I value working collaboratively, working at your pace towards building greater resilience, feeling safer in the world and resolving areas of difficulty in your life so that you can enjoy yourself, your relationships and your life more.
I have over 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist. I've been a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner for ten years, a body-based method for resolving trauma. I am familiar with 12-Step work and incorporate mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral strategies. Our work will support you to live more in the present and to enjoy your life more fully.
Finding the right therapist is a highly personal and potentially life-changing decision. If you are struggling in one or more areas of your life, I invite you to contact me to discuss the possibility of our working together.
