About

How can we stay flexible and authentic in a world filled with stress? Therapy can be a way to work through problems (old and new!) and learn fresh ways to become resilient. I specialize in working with clients who are struggling with a number of things at the same time (such as life transitions, anxiety, trauma). My ideal client is someone who is interested in going below surface issues, and potentially including some "body-up" work in their therapy.
You may be looking for more support or ideas as you deal with stressors in your life. You may be ready to work through past trauma. Therapy can also be a chance for you to focus on some deeper themes such as identity and connection. Whatever your goals, using both "talk therapy" and knowledge of how our body responds to stress can help.
I use a variety of approaches. These include mindfulness, learning to listen to your body & all of the amazing information it has for you. It can also involve emotion regulation skills & tips for challenging your own beliefs or changing your self-talk. The next step is for you and I to connect by email or cell-to see if we are the right fit for each other.
