About

I work with adult individuals and couples using "parts-work" and somatic approaches such as EMDR and other trauma-focused modalities to address symptoms such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, difficulty with setting boundaries and chronic shame. You might have tried "talk-therapy" or EMDR and found those to be helpful yet are still struggling with some of the same symptoms you'd come to therapy for. I can help you with that! Through working on integrating all of your "parts," you can come to experience more ease and a sense of internal coherence that in turn supports you in making some of the changes that you're longing for.
As a Trauma-Informed Somatic Psychotherapist, I use Internal Family Systems (IFS), the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) and EMDR, amongst others, to address trauma in the body. With couples we uncover what’s fueling your arguments and preventing you from connecting with each other so you can experience less conflict and more harmony in your relationship.
I welcome folks from the LGBTQI+ and BIPOC communities as well as immigrants. I also enjoy working with creative types, new parents, new mothers, HSP, adult children of divorce and adult children of narcissistic parents. Email or call me for your free twenty-minute consultation to find out if we would be a good fit in working together.
