I am a trauma specialist working with developmental, relational, and shock traumas. Relationship is what we long for from our deep selves. From birth, our instinct is to connect in order to feel safety, comfort, and wholeness. This yearning moves with us throughout our lives. Connection gives us a sense of belonging and of being "okay". Be it the relationship with self, body, others, and life experience, the connection and flow of it is vital for healthy functioning. When the connection is blocked, frozen, or severed, a whole-self cannot thrive. Reconnecting is essential for our authentic self-expressions.

Sometimes, life holds nothing back. We’re totally overwhelmed. It’s all too much. Too much busy-ness, too much hurry, and too much stress. While you’re a master of taking care of everything and everyone around you, taking care of YOU is often forgotten. And your regular pattern of “go, go, go…” leads to anxiety, burnout, or trauma. And so, you’re just…exhausted. You know something has to change. You know life has more to offer. But you’re not sure where to start.

My father always said “aging comes with serious side effects”. While he meant it as a joke, his words were poetic and true. Whether we are navigating our own experience with aging, or caring for others, Issues related to this experience can dominate our lives, and cause significant distress.

Our beliefs inform our behavior, and if you have a history of abuse, neglect, oppression, sexism, racism, addiction or other traumas, you may be struggling with behaviors that don't yield favorable results in your life. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, rage, hopelessness, maintaining successful relationships, and/or dealing with trauma, let's work to free you of the pain. I can provide an atmosphere free of judgment and shame. I am eclectic in my approach as one size does not fit all, however, I favor Narrative, Psychodynamic and EMDR.

With 20+ years of experience as a seasoned therapist, I provide a "sauna for your feelings," a safe space and container for you to step away from your life to reflect, release and re-align. My goal is to facilitate the identification of difficult thoughts, feelings, and past experiences that prevent us from being comfortable with who we would like to be, what we want, and the kind of relationships that we want to have with others. I find that people who fully invest in themselves have the greatest rate of success.

Were you raised by a parent who cared more for themselves than they did for you? Were they overly critical except when you reflected well upon them? Did you lack the experience of genuine nurturing and protection? Was your parent unresponsive to your needs? If so, you may be the child of a narcissistic parent. As a result, you may hide or deny your pain, become overly attached or fear attaching, suffer from unrelenting self-criticism or struggle to maintain boundaries. These are a few of the patterns most commonly seen with adults whose parent's were not readily attuned to their needs.

When taking the opportunity to reflect in a safe space, we open up to the rewarding possibility of connecting to ourselves and the world from a place of conscious choice, while also addressing attitudes and beliefs that may be inhibiting of growth and fulfillment. This can lead to greater satisfaction with ourselves and a sense of empowerment in our personal and professional lives.

We all face conflicts that at times become “too much.” When we feel overwhelmed there’s a natural tendency to want to restore balance in ourselves and our lives. Any conflict—in love, work, body image, physical symptoms—can lead to anxiety, shame and a sense of "going through the motions." Whether you’re dealing with current or long-standing difficulties, there are effective ways to understand and soften painful feelings. Life can be better when you open to new thinking, curb negativity and break repetitive cycles; you become kinder to yourself. You can find your own voice.
