I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.

From the outside things look like they are going well, but inside you feel stuck and want to shut yourself off from the world. Maybe life seems to have sped up due to the demands of family, work or school. This is far too common and can be emotionally and physically debilitating. Somehow, we end up in our own way and things become overwhelming. The good news is we can also get out of our way. You have already taken an important first step and are considering psychotherapy. Now, imagine yourself being inspired, better able to cope and capable of embracing all that life has to offer. This is where I will help.

Endlessly scrolling through therapist’s profiles can be frustrating and confusing, I get it! So, let me tell you what I am looking for in a client. I am looking for a client who would benefit from a safe space to discuss and process their emotions. A client who would like to improve their overall mental health by learning new positive coping skills and wouldn’t mind completing therapeutic homework outside of session. My client would benefit from processing past traumatic events and learn how those experiences impact their current life.

I believe knowledge of our nervous systems with its attachment and stress response functions is important. The relationship we form in therapy can help you to move toward relief, understanding and the change you are hoping for. Knowledge of the nervous system also informs how we will specifically work to heal difficult or even traumatic experiences. We will build awareness, gain skills and ultimately heal mind and body. We will work on past traumas and difficulties, leaning on strengths and natural resilience, creating personalized solutions to develop gifts, find meaning and live according to your values.
