"In order to live a vibrant and healthy life, you must understand what is happening in the body and why. Somatic work is ideal for those who are wishing to explore topics around sexuality or gender, seeking relief from anxiety or freedom from depression. My work is thorough, progressive and satisfying. Some parts of our psyches are only accessible through the body and paying attention to the body brings deeper understanding and change."

"I understand the importance of needing to feel understood and seen. When therapy is successful, we often will experience a greater sense of spaciousness inside ourselves, freedom from our own judgments, and are reminded that confronting our pain won’t destroy us. The goal is not a short-term fix but instead a long-term shift that brings forth feelings of empowerment, resiliency, and a confidence that our brains and our lives can change. As a consequence of shifting our relationship to ourselves and to our pain, the uncomfortable symptoms often associated with anxiety, trauma, and depression begin to dissolve and loosen their grip. "

"Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or stuck? Don't let old wounds or unresolved trauma keep you from achieving your dreams. It can be exhausting and difficult to continue repeating the same patterns but know that hope is possible. My clients are often amazed at the difference therapy can make. Once you heal the past, the future is open. Imagine how good it would feel to have more confidence, connection, joy, excitement, hope and a renewed sense of purpose. Imagine what would be possible if you could remove all the internal barriers that have been blocking your abundance, ideal partnership, and creativity."
