A person plays many roles over the course of one’s life; some fill the role of a Lover, or a Fighter, Mother or Father, Sister, Brother, or Friend. No matter what role you currently play, the world may have pulled you away from the most important role you can play, which is the role of developing the best version of YOU, that's possible. My approach is based on embracing each person as a whole being, and by learning and growing together through the therapeutic relationship. This allows my clients to find and reembrace their true selves, as they redefine and refresh the roles they play in their own lives.

I see many people who tried regular talk therapy, but their symptoms didn't shift. I also see folks who are overwhelmed--by traumatic events, or simply when modern life, feelings or relationships are "too much". If you've been in talk therapy but are still feeling stuck, it may be because the stress is still in your body. This can show up as PTSD, anxiety, depression, low motivation, panic attacks, substance abuse, eating disorders, etc.My clients learn what their bodies are trying to tell them and what needs to happen to stop symptoms & support healthy well-being. I have a knack for working with unusual or "out of the box" folks.
