There is nothing quite like emotional pain. We carry it with us everywhere. It messes up our life. Sometimes it makes us want to hide from other people; sometimes from ourselves. Sometimes we turn to various escapes to quiet that insistent feeling in our bodies. We look to one solution after another until we learn to mistrust every solution. And we are right. There is no one-size-fits-all answer. In fact, there isn't even a one-size-fits-all question. You are unique, and only you have the answer. My role is to help you find it.

The word “heal” comes from “to make whole.” Psychotherapy, more aptly psyche-therapy, is a sacred process of tending to the soul wound and waking more fully to one’s aliveness and inherent wholeness. I am deeply passionate about supporting you in healing the fragmented and disowned parts of self that hinder you from living a life of meaningful connections, purposeful self-agency and joy. We work collaboratively to creatively transform unconscious and limiting belief structures, access your resiliencies, welcome emerging truths, skillfully navigate adversity with new tools, and integrate insights for profound and evolving change.

Learning to be a human being here on planet earth is a beautiful and oh so very challenging task. I believe we are given all the tools we need for healing along this road called life and sometimes we need some extra support along the way. In these times where anxiety is the new normal, it can be challenging to live in a human body and experience all the intensity. It is no wonder that self-medicating has become a go to "remedy." Somatic psychotherapy works with befriending your body in its wholeness (mind, body, spirit). Integrating the relationship with breath work and gentle body-centered explorations, I support you in tracking ALIVENESS and empower you in your full expression. Along the way, I teach skills that strengthen your capacity to work with difficult emotions, the inner critic, and habitual impulses while staying connected to the present moment.

Congratulations on taking this step, especially at this difficult, pandemic time. We can speak via phone, zoom, or FaceTime. In nearly 40 years of treatment, I have assisted many clients on the spectrum which ranges from: curiosity about past lives, managing minor life changes or ADHD assessments, to more complex issues of depression, anxiety, grief, and trauma. Unexpected life events, difficult phase-of-life issues, loss, and trauma are often painful and intense. I can help you to explore and to understand the thoughts and feelings which underlie your current concerns, whether they are new or have existed since childhood.
