"Women feel deeply, love deeply, and hurt deeply. We just do. Even with experiences like grief, trauma and relationship problems women sometimes go years before seeking help. We blame ourselves for how lost we think we are - or for our "brokenness." This is sadly normal for anyone who's faced mental health problems. That's why you might be seeking a mental health therapist now to get to the root of why life is feeling painful, possibly unmanageable--to learn coping skills, smile more and make real life changes.

"If you long for connection with others but relational trauma is still getting in the way (even after lots of talk therapy), I invite you to try body-centered work with me. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I guide clients to follow what's happening on a moment-to-moment basis and help them finally find protection, safety, security and nurturing. This work specifically targets traumatic patterns in the nervous system and gently, compassionately creates more space for ease and connection in relationship."
