About

Throughout our lifetimes, we experience the world--delightful and painful--through our senses. Stress and trauma become stuck in our minds and bodies. A tough protective skin forms that keeps out pain, but also blocks joy. By slowing down and involving our bodies in the work of therapy, the dynamic display of our emotions finds resonance and calming, the mind and body unwind, and insight naturally arises about ourselves, relationships, and experiences. By including body, mind, and spirit, we tend the whole person. By partnering with the natural world, we invite resources that comfort, guide, and inspire us.
We'll talk and engage in activities that free you or your child to explore and integrate new skills and understandings, and move through current challenges or past traumatic experiences. Possible approaches incorporate knowledge of neurobiology and the nervous system: Tapping, Mindfulness, Attachment, Qigong, Sandplay, Play, Nature-based, & Self-compassion.
Let’s work together on recovering inner joy and a sense of well-being. If you have experienced trauma or disrupted attachment; symptoms of depression, anxiety, or grief; are in the midst of life transition; or have difficulties with pain or stress, you can find safety and help here. Loving, compassionate care will be the foundation. Joy and freedom await!
