Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

Do you feel alone and powerless? Are you experiencing anxiety and lack of trust in your relationships? Do you keep finding yourself in stressful situations you thought you had evolved from? Try as you might, you just can’t get a grasp on developing healthy boundaries for yourself? A lack of balance within yourself can manifest as a painful day-to-day. You’re searching for an integrated life, one where your emotions, your intuition, and your spirit can coexist. This comes with confronting wounds, developing loving boundaries, and trusting yourself to the fullest. Such a life is within your grasp.

I specialize in trauma, anxiety, chronic pain and relationship difficulties. As a somatic therapist certified in EMDR I work with the body-mind connection. I have found this to be more effective with quicker results than traditional talk therapy. EMDR has an effect on the way the brain process information, which helps a memory become just a memory and not something that effects us viscerally. The combination of tuning into the body (with somatic techniques) while using EMDR bi-lateral simulation releases emotions that have been trapped in the body. By doing this many symptoms of anxiety, depression and chronic pain are relieved.

Life is a journey that should enhance who we are and should help us grow personally and professionally. I truly believe that events in life ‘‘happen for you, not to you.’’ When we adapt that mentality, we are able to utilize the obstacle in our lives as opportunities to grow and enhance our existence. In treatment I help my clients process past events that occurred in their lives in order for them to understand how those events affected their lives and shaped their existence. I helped my clients understand any unconscious defense mechanisms they are engaging that could be bringing harm to their lives. I am EMDR trained as well.

I believe healing is most transformative when we begin to understand the intersections that make us whole: the parts of ourselves that we value and celebrate as well as the parts that we criticize, deny or dislike. I want to know how you feel about your story and how it has impacted your sense of wholeness. My goal is to help you build a better understanding of the pain, distress or fear that holds you back from achieving the life you want so you can begin to make room for more joy and a meaningful existence.

In all phases of life, we face constant change and unexpected circumstances. Even for those who are strongly independent and resilient, life can be overwhelming at times. Therapy can be a space to explore the parts of life that feel uncertain and unmanageable, and identify where you want to go from here. Building the foundation for growth in therapy starts by creating a safe, genuine space where people can feel heard, understood, and valued for the person they are. I believe that people can foster long-term growth through understanding their journey, connecting with their true emotions, and empowering choice with authenticity.

Imagine what it would feel like to enjoy the process of self-discovery, personal growth and understanding. Your creative process can become your road to emotional wellbeing - a safe and gratifying way to explore difficult experiences and emotions such as fear, sadness, frustration, and anxiety.

It may very well be that our deepest longing and need is for connection. To be heard and understood. To be known in places where many others are never allowed. To be more connected to the lost neglected parts of ourselves and those we care about. You have this opportunity in the safety of psychotherapy. It isn't always an easy road. Perhaps this sounds intimidating. Often it entails letting go of destructive habits or getting unstuck. We may need to look at old patterns and create new ones. There may be moments of laughing, crying, or facing hard truths.

Change in therapy happens through a process of increased self-understanding, practicing new ways of engaging (with yourself, with others, with a particular problem or set of issues), and development and practice of coping strategies. I collaborate with my clients to identify and work toward treatment goals, using a combination of practical skills and deeper work to explore and repair root issues that may be contributing to current problems.
