Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

I’m glad you are here! Looking for a therapist means you’ve taken the initiative to ask for help and seek for change. Many people say that they already start to feel better after making their first appointment. Whether you are feeling stuck or blocked to achieve your goals, losing self-confidence and motivation; or having difficulty coping with a recent loss, a big life change; or finding yourself feeling more anxious, sad, angry, or having more arguments and feeling unsatisfied in your significant relationships; or you are interested in figuring out who you are and feel more connected with yourself; I am here for you.

Do you somehow feel like you just don't fit into your life? People I work with often feel like misfits, even though - from the outside - they may appear to be doing just fine. I help people see through their trances of unworthiness, shame, distrust, and inferiority. These trances often stem from identifying with outdated stories from the past. These stories often have deep roots in the mind, heart, body, and spirit, and can take time to unearth and unravel. I offer a safe, sacred space where these stories and early traumas - that are showing up today as persistent "problems"- can be explored, understood, and ultimately released.

Life can be challenging and complex. At times we are faced with situations that feel overwhelming and seemingly insurmountable. Trauma can result in a loss of a sense of self and hopelessness. Engaging in therapy is a personal decision; one that requires commitment and hard work to attain life changes. I believe therapy tailored to meet individual needs can facilitate increased self-awareness leading to emotional, as well as, relational attunement and enhancement. I work with clients from diverse backgrounds, offering sensitivity to experiences of marginalization, ableism, discrimination, racism, or other 'isms encountered.

I love "pushy parents," who feel as though they live in IEP meetings, and on the phone with healthcare providers. I love parents who push for their children, because who else will? Similarly, I love working with young people who have "behavioral problems," "worry too much," have "big emotions," or struggle socially. My clients are typically too smart, too creative and under-appreciated. Parents who come to my office often wonder: a) "will this help?" b) "will you understand my child?" and "c) if you understand my kid, will you then judge me?" My answers are a) "yes. It can even be fun" b) "that's my main goal" c) "not a chance."

Sometimes we just get stuck. And that can come in different forms: Maybe you're a new mom, feeling overwhelmed by the demands of motherhood and distant from the person you used to be. Or maybe you're a parent feeling stretched thin, struggling to balance it all, and wondering how to take care of your family and yourself. Maybe you're a young professional, passionate about your work but dissatisfied with how it takes away from investing in other aspects of your life. Maybe you're just feeling stuck with the same old feelings you've had for years.

Every person has inherent creativity and a capacity to thrive. My role is to help connect you to your existing strengths and to help you try out new tools. When words are not enough, we can turn to more creative processes. Art therapy and EMDR are modalities that engage the body and mind, what we feel and think. Both modalities help us not only think differently, but also feel something new and healing.

Do you feel overwhelmed? Hopeless? Scared? Stuck? Do you feel like your world is spinning out of control? Are you taking care of a family member with a disability or illness? Do you wish the chaos would stop? What would it be like to not feel that way? Sometimes past hurts affect present relationships. Sometimes what you know in your head doesn't match what you feel in your heart. Sometimes multiple stressors can overwhelm you. And sometimes we just need a tune-up for our lives.

I believe you have the answers within, and my job is to help you find them. I do that by helping you feel safe and cared for. I am a warm and fuzzy kind of therapist! The relationship we develop together is the most important thing. Somatic refers to the body, and in this work we focus on movement and feelings. We experiment and play. The seeds of our issues often arise before we can speak, so we have to be able to do more than just talk about our problems. We have to explore them, and feel them.
