I specialize in trauma, PTSD, the “inner critic,” low self-esteem, making life change, and adults abused as children. With Somatic Psychotherapy, EMDR, and other mindfulness-based modalities, we can work together to address and resolve traumatic memories so they no longer block your life potential. Unprocessed traumatic memories can get “stuck” in the body’s nervous system, and can influence how we live our lives in the present. If you’ve noticed yourself having exaggerated responses to everyday life stressors, or feeling paralyzed to make change, it’s possible you’re responding from old, automatic survival mechanisms.

They come into my office in a sort of terror, and their immediate goal is to make the pain stop as quickly as possible. I am much more interested in getting to know your pain than in getting rid of it. I want to know where the pain stems from, how you suppress it, why it scares you and from whom you hide it.

We all have strategies for dealing with stress day-to-day. But over time, many strategies can fall short or even backfire. We may find ourselves withdrawing and avoiding certain aspects of our lives, or overextending and pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion. This can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, and irritable and can also take a toll on our relationships and physical health. One of my goals as a therapist is to help you identify changes you can make, both big and small, and tap into your motivation to follow-through on those changes.
