"I see myself as a holistic practitioner. Therapy with me involves working the body just 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."

"If you are going through a time in which you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed, it is courageous to find the strength to reach out and make an investment in yourself and your future with therapy. I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit, as we all have the potential answers to improving our lives but often need someone to offer us the reflective space to think differently in order to shift our experiences. That may mean exploring the past to understand or accept what has happened, but it is always in service of improving your present & future."

" At the early stages of development, children are learning important skills on how to communicate their feelings, adapt to challenges, connect and attach to others, utilize complex thinking skills to solve problems, and love themselves exactly for who they are. Unfortunately, many obstacles can get in the way of healthy development and can rupture a child's sense of self resulting in many difficulties as they navigate a very relational and complex world. Often times this looks like having difficulty in school, challenges with making and keeping friends, emotional outbursts, limited vocabulary and self-expression. "

I welcome everyone who wants to work with me, and especially welcome those who may not have felt comfortable in therapy before, possibly due to experiencing marginality, societal oppression, or being shy.
