I have advanced training in Somatic Experiencing therapy and grief counseling, as well treatment individuals with ADHD.
I have been a clinical psychologist for more than 20 years. I specialize in treating individuals aged 12 through adulthood who are experiencing challenges with life's normal transitions and milestones, have experienced traumatic events or have a history of childhood trauma, or are experiencing relationship or social difficulties. I also work with individuals with Attention Deficit Disorder, helping them to compensate and thrive, despite their challenges. Choosing to begin therapy is not an easy decision, but it's the first step to living your life more fully and thriving.

To achieve this change, I combine empowerment and strength-based psychotherapy with MBCT, somatic experiencing, CBT, and creative arts therapy.
Imagine you had a friend struggling with a problem, wouldn’t you do everything in your power to help them? Now imagine that friend is you. Give yourself the same grace, respect, and attention you would give to a friend in need. Whether you have been struggling with depression throughout the pandemic in silence or are just realizing your persistent anxiety is not getting better with exercise. Therapy can be the solution to heal the past and keep you focused on the present.

If we can look at ourself with a balanced combination of humility and confidence, then we can relate effectively with others. I will work with you individually and in group. Our 1-1 work will focus on understanding your unconscious, the parts of yourself that you're not aware of. Often this includes unexpressed frustration and resentment that shows up as somatic symptoms, bad luck, self-sabotage at work or in relationships, compulsive behavior, anxiety and depression. We will look at your dreams, the patterns in your life and the dynamics in the sessions themselves. We may also draw on art, movement and play.

I integrate relational psychodynamic theory, mindfulness, and somatic perspectives in helping clients better understand themselves and in resolving conflicts.
Psychotherapy is a process that allows for healing and meaningful connection. Past struggles and difficult thought patterns can cause strain on your sense of self and your relationships. My goal is to provide a warm and supportive space that allows you to share and explore what you need. As your therapist I would take great care in hearing your story and attending to our therapeutic relationship. I work with individuals, couples, and families across a spectrum of identities and backgrounds on their path toward wholeness.

We all have a desire to be heard, to be understood, and to be soothed. We often yearn for more satisfying and loving relationships. In therapy, I will listen carefully to you as we sort through obstacles that may be preventing you from experiencing greater ease and happiness. I will bear witness to your life stories, acknowledge your successes and struggles, and help you to find renewed resilience, acceptance and change. I'm patient and open-minded, and provide an empathic therapy space. I believe true healing occurs when we take care of our whole self in mind, body and spirit.

Trust is the most important part of any relationship. It's important to be able to trust others but more importantly to trust yourself. “The true key is trust in self, for when I trust myself I fear no one else, I took control of my life, just as anyone can, I want everyone to see it’s in the palm of your hand, the past is gone, the future yet unborn, but right here and now is where it all goes on”-MCA Beastie Boys. With trust you can increase your connection to others as well as increase your ability to tolerate life’s ups and downs and enjoy life in the moment.

If you're reading this, I invite you to take a moment and breathe. May you receive this affirmation: "I am glad that you are here." It may have been a long journey: painful and lonely, confusing and frustating, and maybe even scary and hopeless. That you have made it here, is something to uplift. It is not easy to be known by those around you, and sometimes most of all, to be known to yourself.

I’m particularly passionate about working with young adults, adults, and couples facing roadblocks including trauma, relationships, stress, and life transitions. My client would be eager to explore deeper issues and unhealthy patterns with a desire to implement a mind-body-spirit approach. The north star of my work is the belief that to heal tension, stress, pain, and feelings - we first need to feel safe and sound in our nervous system. We’re familiar with the idea that trauma impacts our brains adversely, but in my understanding, it also has physical effects on the body.

My therapeutic style is very solution-oriented: I help you identify specific goals and develop the tools you need to achieve them. To do this, I use Insight-oriented, Cognitive, and Behavioral techniques: Insight-oriented - helping you understand the emotional patterns that cause you to behave in ways that are harmful,) Cognitive - identifying the thoughts that are the result of these emotional patterns, and Behavioral - effectively replacing these vicious cycles with more healthy behavioral patterns. These tools allow you to build the skills you need to feel increased calm, improved mood, and live a more fulfilling and happy live.

There are times in life when we encounter pressures and difficulties that not only challenge our ability to cope and adapt in healthy and effective ways, but that also leave us feeling either out of touch with, and/or out of alignment with our truest, most authentic selves. Our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being can often suffer as a result. As a licensed clinical psychologist with specialized training and expertise in treating issues related to physical health and spirituality, I am deeply passionate about providing evidenced-based psychotherapy that respects and honors the whole person.

I collaborate with complex people who are deeply yearning to be met within their complexities. Those who find me are looking for a greater sense of direction and relief from their lived experiences with different kinds of trauma, anxiety, depression, mood instability, panic, relational injury/stress, challenging life transitions, addiction, identity confusion, and existential angst. What they want more than anything is a kind of support that will be restorative, reparative, and memorable; a space they can be unequivocally themselves without backlash.

I see people with depression, anxiety, compulsive behaviors as well as traumatic histories and losses. Together, we will work to gain a deep understanding of your early and lifelong relationships, in which your struggles were formed. Additionally, I ask about how social, economic, gendered and racial issues frame your pain. I integrate a basic psycho-dynamic understanding integrated with trauma techniques, body work, hypnosis and cognitive behavioral work in individual and group therapy. Group therapy adds another layer of healing possibility through the camaraderie, clarity and empathy groups provide.

My intention is to create a space that feels secure for folks to feel seen and heard for who they are, while moving through their own healing process.

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.
