"I believe in transformation - yours (and mine), and that the draw towards the good is irresistible. I want to know your story, how you tell it, and where you hope it will go. As your unfoldment happens (and, yes, it's always messy), it can be helpful to have a partner in this incredibly difficult yet doable work. As you move from less happy to more happy, you'll have an ally. Give me a relatively positive thought that your mind can embrace, and I will run with it. Calls are typically returned within two hours."

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!"
