About

CALL Only: Adults & Seniors: Individual & Couple: The imprint of trauma is psychological & somatic: long after the events are over, the body continues to respond as if danger were ever present. My professional mission is to bring this understanding of trauma to Adult and Senior clients as a psychotherapist, looking for answers to helping traumatic events. The key to healing is not just knowing what happened but transforming how mind, body, & soul still remember it. Trauma can reveal itself via depression, anxiety, despair, separations ,lack of resolve, patterns of repetition , worn out "survival mode defenses" from earlier times.
Understanding is in the work with all Adult clients & trauma clients. The key to healing is not just knowing what happened but transforming how mind, body & soul remember this . Individual & Couple : Depression, Anxiety, Panic, Coping skills, Aging, Parenting, Transitions, Separations, Relationship to self . Welcome to the journey, Office Calls are best,
When we feel like we cannot progress in our lives when repeating patterns or stuck in survival mode, we need to find a therapist who hears, listens to hear how your body has stored the memories & behaviors . Coping is no longer working. A fitting match in a therapist to work through & find pathways that allow for letting go, grief work., & transformation.
