The decision to start therapy signals an interest and curiosity about becoming more grounded and present in our lives. Each of us has a unique set of strengths and challenges that shape who we are and how we experience relationships. My therapeutic approach is trauma-informed and draws on psychodynamic, sensorimotor, and mindfulness based modalities. I work with clients from a practical, here-and-now perspective while attending to the impact of relational, cultural, and early childhood experiences. I am Level 1 Basic Trained in Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR. I also work with grief & loss, depression, and body acceptance.

Rooted in insight-building modalities like mindfulness, trauma-focused meditations, energy work, yoga, and somatic experiencing with psychotherapy, I empower clients to find awareness within to move forward with more clarity and confidence.
I am the Founder of Reset Brain and Body, an integrative mental health care company that is on a mission to redefine how people experience mental health care. I work specifically with C-Suite, Executive and Entrepreneurial clients looking to level up their intuition, remove habitual blockages and overcome trauma, cycles of stress, limiting beliefs and self-sabotage. In working with high-achieving clients, I bring a bold, creative and experiential approach unlike any traditional therapy experience. My own experience as a business owner and corporate director has led me to create a passionate approach to working with this clientele.

I also help you manage feelings and somatic responses to your environment so that you get the relief you deserve.
As an empathetic, deep feeling person it’s hard to put your own needs first. You feel emotionally and physically exhausted every day and want a break from your worries and stress. Managing your overthinking and regulating your feelings seems impossible and overwhelming. You experience anxiety and fatigue often and feel like you don’t fit into the world around you. Exploring and understanding the why behind your feelings would give you great relief. It feels risky to ask for help but you’re tired of feeling this way and are ready to experience life differently.

We all have the capacity for emotional healing. My role is to help each client overcome their own barriers and foster their own path to inner healing. As both a young girl and woman, I experienced my own emotional struggles and I know what it is like to feel hopeless and lost. Connection and feeling safe in therapy is vital before any changes can occur. Ensuring that clients feel comfortable expressing their innermost thoughts and feelings is my first priority. Treatment is tailored to each individual client. Therefore, I will use varied approaches until we find your best fit.

My main focus is on the importance of emotional wellbeing. I believe that everyone experiences difficulties in their lives and see the counseling office as a space for clients to express and normalize difficult feelings in a safe environment. I believe that people have all of the components for a happy and healthy life but sometimes need help processing and navigating through their feelings and experiences to learn new and more effective ways to cope. I operate through the Polyvagal Theory lens to assess emotional regulation and work to stabilize and co-regulate clients as this is essential to healing.

Are you feeling depleted, depressed? Overwhelmed, anxious? Or, dissatisfied with your relationships? And longing for more relational connection and love? Do you feel overstressed, overworked and unappreciated? Struggling with not feeling good enough, no matter how hard you try? If you answered "Yes" to any or all of the above, you are not alone. Individuals often enter therapy because they are struggling with these types of concerns. We all thrive and heal best in an environment in which we feel emotionally safe, nurtured, listened to and accepted. I value creating these healing qualities within our therapeutic relationship and work together.

My ideal client is someone who is ready for change and comes to therapy for guidance, support and coping strategies to help them on their way. Healing comes from our own efforts and reflections. I especially love to work with folks who want to understand the mind-body connection and are open to integrative methods such as mindfulness, meditation, breathing and restorative yoga.

If you (or your adolescent) are feeling stuck in life, overwhelmed by daily stressors, having trouble managing emotions, or feel like you're "just not yourself anymore," I'm here for you. Life is full of obstacles that hold us back from our dream lives. School, work, relationships, family, health, finances, and sometimes our own thinking can absolutely overwhelm us. Together, we can explore, heal, find balance and manage these obstacles so that you can become YOU again.

I enjoy working with people who are willing to be curious. People who are open to discovering their true selves and the root of their suffering. Many of us focus too much time and energy on things outside of ourselves that we often lose sight of who and what we are at our core. My ideal client is someone who is ready to look inward, observe and challenge their patterns, and rediscover their inner being.

Healing is not linear, there are no set rules, but the journey is worth it. Practicing patience and compassion for oneself is one of the greatest acts of self-care. I value and celebrate each and every person’s individuality and cultivate a safe, non-judgmental and open environment for my clients to show up just as they are, and allow them the space and time to feel safe, heard and able to continue their journey of healing.

While there are many reasons that people seek therapy, the need for support and perspective are often high on the list. Therapy can be a safe haven where the more difficult things in life are explored and allowed the space to heal. I aim to make each of my clients feel understood, respected, and seen throughout the process. I bring a calm, sincere demeanor to my practice and aim to embody my values of competence, compassion, and collaboration.

Do you feel anxious, depressed, stressed, or overwhelmed? Are you tired of negative self-talk, repetitive thoughts, the same pattern(s) of behavior, or being unhappy in your relationships? Do you want to feel better about yourself and your relationships, experience greater life satisfaction, and have more energy? These things come from having greater self-possession, which is the ability to have a stronger sense of self and be able to fully know and express your truth.

Everyone has a story to tell. Our experiences are what make us unique. Sometimes those experiences can be absolutely wonderful, but sometimes they can unexpectedly flip our world upside down and leave us feeling hopeless, lost, or alone. We may not be able to change the experiences from our past, however, through our work together, we can make sure that they do not define our future. I’m here to listen without judgement, offer support, and encourage self reflection. I provide a safe space to confront whatever it is that may be holding you back from living your life to the fullest.

Are you suffering from trauma, depression, loss, or abandonment issues? Have you been impacted by sexual abuse, emotional neglect, foster care, adoption or other childhood traumas? Are you tired of numbing the pain and hiding the hurt? If so, it may be time for you to talk to someone. Trauma looks different from person to person and can show up in many ways. Unfortunately, some people do not understand the emotional pain that traumatic experiences can cause, and therefore, they don’t understand you! If your story has your thoughts and emotions keeping you from the life you want, allow me to support you on your journey to healing.

Somatic Therapists

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
