About

Our symptoms and discomforting experiences express what has happened to us in the past. In my clinical work, I aspire to help clients tolerate and be present moment to moment, using the body and the felt senses as entry points to habits of thought, feelings, and behaviors that stand as barriers to living an engaged life. All aspects of experience are invited into the therapy room, and working with what arises we seek antidotes and tools to reduce suffering and open up new possibilities. A deep mutuality, collaboration, creativity, and surprise are what I absolutely love about the therapeutic relationship.
Study in the mind/body fields and my practice as a meditator all inform my work. I have experience working with trauma symptoms that originate from childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, physical and emotional abuse and neglect, as well as coping with addiction, life transitions, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
I am certified in the trauma resolution model of Somatic Experiencing. It's important to me to engage in active and ongoing learning with my colleagues, which I do regularly. Therapists are continuously developing and I find that each client shapes and changes something about how I understand therapeutic work.
