About

(NOTE: I have little to no availability. ) Do you struggle with the effects of a difficult childhood, have an addiction, had a life-changing accident, or experienced an abusive or controlling relationship? If so, you probably don't enjoy life as much as you'd 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, at your pace, towards building greater resilience, feeling safer, and resolving areas of difficulty so that you can enjoy yourself, your relationships and your life more.
I have over 20 years experience as a psychotherapist. I'm also a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, a body-based method for resolving trauma that is "stuck" in the body. I'm 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. Please contact me by phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
