My approach is shaped by a combination of training in somatic & trauma-focused methods, including EMDR, Polyvagal Theory & Neurobiology-informed play therapy - using a client-centered, interpersonal, humanistic framework.
It's my understanding that emotions are my mind and body's way of telling me something about my life experience. However, emotions can be uncomfortable, scary, and overwhelming. It requires vulnerability and courage to ask for help getting to understand these feelings better. I strive to help clients better understand their life experiences and feelings however they may show up. I have seen clients with trauma, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, existential issues, codependency, behavioral issues, grief, divorce, family conflict, autism, ADHD, & more. I work with children as young as 3 years old, adolescents, adults, & families.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Marriage and Family Therapist and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner.
I have been practicing as a psychotherapist for 30 years and I very much enjoy my work. My goal is to help people with healing, and in so doing help them to live a more joyful and meaningful life. I have years of experience helping clients address and recover from many different issues. I work with emotional wounds that are often at the core of issues that clients bring to me. I have found that when these wounds can be addressed in a safe environment, healing can take place. I work with adults of all life stages, with adolescents, children, with individuals, families and groups.

Founded in Somatic , Psychodynamic, and Systems theory, my therapeutic approach is psyche-emotional and biopsychosocial oriented.
Being human is a shared experience. My role in the counseling relationship is of a fellow traveler along your journey. I am a collaborator who both believes and believes in my clients. As a Licensed Massage Therapist for 15+ years, I provide an expertise in bodywork integral to psychotherapy work, connecting the systems of the body with emotional pain and psychological distress. I excel when working with systems (relationships), life transitions, dissociation, attachment-based distress, prolonged grief, suicide, self-harm, the Self, and identity crises.

We all have a story we tell ourselves about our worth as a human being. That story is influenced by our experiences. Sometimes the story is positive and beneficial. Other times, the story creates negative beliefs that prevent inner happiness and healthy relationships with others, as well as ourselves. I believe we can change the unhealthy stories we tell ourselves.

Aiming to thrive and not solely survive? Despite our adverse experiences or current circumstances, we can find ourselves wanting to find more meaning in life. We help our clients slow down to closely examine the obstacles that are interfering with their ability to live the life they envision. Our approach to counseling is to learn to love yourself as you are while working on your areas of growth. We are all worthy of self-love and self-compassion, but all too often this is absent in our lives. Our hope is that through this process you find your true self and are courageous enough to embrace and live out your most authentic life!

Do you function fairly well in most ways, but have some nagging issues (i.e. you struggle to trust, have a history of unhealthy or unsatisfying intimate relationships, trouble concentrating) that may be the result of past trauma? Do you want ways to process and heal that don't have to involve talking about the specifics of what happened to you? Do you have a child who needs some extra support navigating life changes (i.e. parents separated/divorced, school changes, moving homes, loss of loved one)? I have tools to address a number of issues that get in the way of better functioning and a more satisfying life.

With 8 years of experience working with all ages, I specialize in anxiety, depression, codependency, trauma, divorce, perfectionism, relationship issues, self-esteem, aging, women’s issues and life transitions. I particularly enjoy individuals who are open-minded, motivated, and willing to do the work while trusting the therapeutic process. It is so important to be willing to try new things by venturing out of your comfort zone during our time together. By not having to rely strictly on medication to mask your issues, therapy teaches you to cope with life’s struggles, and thus change your fearful view of the world.

Becoming attached to our thoughts and feelings can be easy and, at times, overwhelming. Along with living in the past or future - often times not experiencing what's going on around us right now. Increasing our psychological flexibility can help us adapt to difficult situations and help us learn how to respond to our thoughts and feelings in a more effective way. Do you want to learn how to experience the present moment more through a holistic approach and making committed action towards change, increasing psychological flexibility?

I work primarily with issues of depression, anxiety, child abuse, neglect, grief, and trauma. Helping someone through difficult issues is a collaboration between therapist and client. It takes courage to show up for therapy and trust someone to help! I practiced and taught meditation as a means for recovering from trauma for 30 years before becoming a therapist. Meditation develops a stronger, calmer mind, but doesn't completely clear psychological issues, unless you've the luxury of years of intense practice. For faster results than talk therapy or meditation alone, I integrate them to build self-awareness and stability.

The first sign of a serious struggle is often the condition of our relationships with others. Feeling misunderstood or unappreciated can often be a source of depression, stress, loneliness and anxiety. Experiencing job difficulties that leave us feeling inadequate and lost, or growing up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional home can intensify these feelings, especially when approaching the age/adjustment phase of retirement. Many even find themselves experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress. Gaining insight about how the past affects the present can help to smooth over many facets of our current circumstances.

Somatic Therapists

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
