About

I am a CSAT specializing in trauma and addiction as well as sexuality and intimacy issues. My unique style treats emotional discomfort and pain as avenues for self-discovery and personal growth. As a somatic therapist, I believe true healing comes from creating alignment between body, mind, and soul. As you more skilled at navigating your inner obstacles, you will rediscover your capacity to find balance and live a life that is healthy, joyful, and free. I emphasize insight, self-awareness, and empowerment to help you grow, learn about the meaning behind your symptoms, and lead a more gratifying life.
I create an integrative treatment plan that is adjusted to the uniqueness of each individual, providing referrals for collaborative services when appropriate.I utilize Mindfulness, Meditation, Cognitive-Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Emotional Focused and Dialectical Behavioral approach to help patients manage negative behaviors, increase overall functioning, and gain control over their lives.
By focusing on breath or sensation in the body, one can separate thoughts from feelings, which can be hugely beneficial in addressing certain emotions. I offer compassion, strength, and hope to enable you to create the life you have always longed for.
