When we know how to look we can see how our past presents itself in the present moment. Whether it is anxiety, panic, pain, addictions, trauma, loss or grief - we explore together what gets in the way of living a life worth living. I integrate Somatic Experiencing, NARM, EMDR, CBT, Voice Dialogue, ACT, and mindfulness practices into a multidimensional approach to discover how to help you realize a satisfying life, the life you want to live.

I am a relational body therapist certified in Somatic Experiencing, the use of touch for trauma, and NARM - the NeuroAffective Relational Model. My work is relational, somatic oriented, mindfulness based, present time oriented, non-pathologizing, and psychodynamically informed. These are the skills I use to support our natural impulse to heal.

Happiness and the elimination of suffering are the primary motivators for change and emotional growth. It's not what you do, it is how you feel about it that is most important. Life is short so we should have the opportunity to live it fully.
