My process is well-rounded, with considerations for personal struggles and the world you live in (friends, family, work, etc). Personal healing through deep self-reflections are often experienced through an adaptive combination of narrative therapy, systemic therapy, and reality therapy. I have a history of extensive trauma work. This experience has led to an approach that includes a bringing together of painful past experiences with their impact upon your daily life. Therapy works to unravel such pain, and then promote active daily empowering to counter and overcome the impact of those hard experiences.

Experiencing ongoing, underlying anger? Having difficulty concentrating at times? Or problems sleeping? Overly anxious or feeling depressed? Or, is life a bit overwhelming at this time? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, know I understand that living life with these issues saps your joy, making it hard to move forward. As a dance/movement therapist, I use movement to provide a physical dimension to traditional “talk” therapies. Dance therapy allows clients to embody their thoughts and feelings, as well as to practice “walking-through” potential solutions.

Every day I have the privilege of working with the bravest folks on the planet & none of you know it when you first walk in the door. You often feel defeated, overwhelmed & ashamed that you aren't able to "get over" your sexual, physical or emotional trauma. It's also common for you to have a nagging, chronic sense that something is just not right, an unhappiness; feeling unloved or unlovable, disconnected from friends and family, having lost a sense of purpose or direction. Without knowing that these symptoms may be telling us that a past trauma--long ago dismissed, minimized or buried inside is demanding to be addressed.
