As a depth-oriented therapist and life coach, I offer a safe, emotionally warm, non-judgmental therapeutic space for individuals and couples to examine behavioral patterns, explore and develop strategies for issues of anxiety, depression, confidence, shame, self-worth, self-esteem, grief, life transitions, and dating. I provide a safe and warm space for men, LGBTQ, multicultural, and diasporic identities to express and process their issues and concerns. We will collaborate and explore mindful ways to remove potential barriers to the marital or professional relationship, career, or academic progress you can achieve.

My work draws from psychodynamic psychotherapy, and an eclectic mix of traditions, including mindfulness, somatic experiencing, interpersonal and relational.
I treat individuals, couples, and families, spanning from childhood through adulthood. Therapy can be useful when we are experiencing life as painful, confusing or challenging, no matter the reason. Many live with feelings of sadness, loss, disorientation, isolation and diminished self-worth. Exploring those feelings and troubling symptoms in a safe environment with a caring, experienced professional, can serve to motivate us to identify patterns that stand in our way, be curious about and understand ourselves, all of which can lead to making meaningful and needed changes.

Trauma-informed, somatic-centered practices such as Somatic Experiencing (SE) and EMDR form another facet.
I have the opportunity after years in the mental health field to dedicate more time to doing what I love to do most —help people discover insights and tools for psychological well-being. I've been fortunate to witness transformations in the lives of those I've had the privilege to assist with a treatment strategy that combines three distinct pathways to psychological wellness. Starting with traditional psychodynamic techniques, we understand the "what" and "why" of your experiences. Feeling validated serves as a foundation for healing.

My skills come from significant training in: Relational psychoanalytic therapy, Trauma focused modalities informed by brain research (incl EMDR, IFS and other somatic interventions), Family systems, Couples therapy, Mindfulness and CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy).
Regardless of what you are dealing with, I believe in the potential to harness your inner resources to heal and grow. Connecting deeply with the right therapist can help you get to where you want to be. When you become more aware of what is going on consciously and unconsciously in your mind and body, you can be more effectual, less anxious and/or depressed, and have more energy and joy in your life. As I get to know you and we create a safe and meaningful relationship, we can make fundamental changes that will have a lasting effect.

We feel a great loss when our early wounds and traumas restrict our energy and impede our ability to live freely and joyfully. If you feel this way, I'm glad you're here. I can help you retrieve lost energy and rewire old patterns so you can more fully embody who you're meant to be. Your pain is often an invitation to slow down and get curious about your feelings so you can evolve. I use a mind-body approach (somatic experiencing/ gestalt) with a relational lens (psychodynamic/ attachment/ Jungian). If you feel stuck after years of talk therapy, I can help. I see children, adolescents, adults, couples & families virtually.

I can help you restore access to your inner resources, incorporating concrete techniques from somatic approaches (for instance, grounding) as well as elements of cognitive therapy, mindfulness, and insight-oriented therapy.
Are you struggling with over-thinking, worry, procrastination, or chronic stress? Or maybe noticing that you keep repeating the same relationship mistakes, or struggling to find the motivation to date, despite wanting to find a relationship? People often come to therapy looking to shift the way they manage their relationships or the day to day flow of coping with stress. I can help you unstick those old, stuck patterns and free up your available energy so that you can grow, change, and thrive rather than just survive.

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.
