Have you experienced awful or traumatic experiences in your life? Have these experiences left you feeling dazed and confused about who you are and how to navigate life? Does your brain and body feel overly tired? Do you worry about just about everything? Have difficulty with decisions and follow through? Perhaps you’re engaging with alcohol, drugs, food, and other things in unhelpful ways to try to numb emotional pain. Negative life experiences leave negative imprints on your brain and body. Heal your brain and body to change your life.
I work with individuals and couples. I help you transform a life of chaos and disconnection into a fulfilling life. Helping you rebuild your relationship with yourself and others. Develop healthy communication, stronger and closer connections. Become unstuck from unhealthy patterns resulting from anxiety, depression, eating disorders, trauma, and addictions.
I use the leading-edge psychotherapy modalities of Brainspotting, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Internal Family Systems to help your brain and body heal and recover. Working with me is beyond tips and tricks and symptom management. I have a great sense of humor and some stories to share as necessary.

I primarily use Brainspotting, a brain (limbic system) and body (somatic) based modality focused on healing, recovery, and transformation. This is known as the bottom-up approach in therapy. When you heal your brain and body from the pain and wounds of the past you naturally change your negative internal experiences and narratives to positive and affirming ones - you transform your life.
