While all people experience challenges throughout life, we each suffer in different ways and, as a result, develop a unique style of dealing with stress. During difficult times, ways of coping that once worked often lose their effectiveness. Even after identifying a problem or unhealthy pattern, it may be difficult to resolve the issue without the necessary support. Therapy often involves an increased curiosity toward one's emotional experience, and over time, awareness of how feelings relate to behavior. This allows for a deeper understanding of who we are and can help us approach problems and conflicts in healthier ways.

Are you tired of feeling stuck and that nothing seems to change no matter what you do? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious and it’s starting to affect your relationships and your work. Or maybe it’s because you’re in a relationship where you have the same fights over and over and nothing seems to get better. Unresolved hurt and resentment may be making you feel distant from your partner. You may long to be closer but feel unsure that things can change. Feeling disconnected or distant from others is painful and can leave us feeling alone, insecure and full of self-doubt.

Do you feel self-critical, unworthy, stuck, or disconnected from yourself or others? Do you struggle to be present, feel locked into cycles, find yourself having a good life which you can't seem to take in, or don't know what you want at all? These may be signs of unprocessed emotional wounds, grief, or complex or developmental trauma. Emotions, grief, and trauma all exist in non-verbal, non-cognitive parts of our brains and psyches. For this reason, expressive arts therapy and somatic psychotherapy are able to surpass the limitations of traditional "talk therapy", and heal you in ways that may have not been possible before.

I see myself as a holistic practitioner. Therapy with me involves working with the body as much as the mind. This can be challenging for some, but leads to long-term resolution and healing in a more complete, organic nature. Through Somatic Experiencing (SE), I have been trained to work specifically with trauma and the way in which our survival energy becomes trapped in our bodies. We embody our lived experience.
