I am a trauma specialist working with developmental, relational, and shock traumas. Relationship is what we long for from our deep selves. From birth, our instinct is to connect in order to feel safety, comfort, and wholeness. This yearning moves with us throughout our lives. Connection gives us a sense of belonging and of being "okay". Be it the relationship with self, body, others, and life experience, the connection and flow of it is vital for healthy functioning. When the connection is blocked, frozen, or severed, a whole-self cannot thrive. Reconnecting is essential for our authentic self-expressions.

Old coping mechanisms don't always work as well as they used to and we struggle with life, relationships, and career. We feel anxious, stressed, and unable to cope alone.

OCD is a debilitating condition that consists of irrational or excessive fears and concerns that become obsessive and manifest as intrusive, unwanted, disturbing thoughts, images or impulses. These obsessions are accompanied by repetitive and time-consuming mental and behavioral acts called rituals or compulsions that are done to prevent bad things associated with the obsessions from happening. Avoidance is the third component of OCD, which involves deliberately staying away from things, people and places that trigger or worsen obsessive fears and concerns, or to avoid the risk of some dreaded event.

The depth tradition holds that all healing begins with a call or a longing manifested through symptoms like depression, anxiety, discontent, pain, or illness. If we choose to accept the invitation of our symptoms and our pain, we may discover that they can be life's unique way of getting our attention ~ drawing us into a deeper engagement and collaboration with our authentic self. Symptoms invite us to consider what needs shifting, shedding, grieving, loving, embracing; what is true, meaningful, creative, and life affirming. I welcome the opportunity to assist you in your process of self discovery, growth and healing.
