Incorporating a whole person approach to healing, we will use mind-body therapies, like Art Therapy, EMDR and Somatic Experiencing, to get out of your head and heal the root of your emotional pain.
This can’t be your life! You expend all your energy worrying about the needs of others, the never-ending demands of your job, and striving to meet an unreachable standard. The tension that plagues your mind and body refuses to be ignored. Intuitively, you know something’s not right. You know how to get things done. That’s what propelled you into the status you proudly earned. But keeping this pace is draining the life out of you. Now you’re the micro-manager, clinging to control and scared to let go. You’re an emotional baggage claim, harboring all the emotions you never processed. You resent feeling this way. It's time for change.

We can work together to cultivate trauma recovery using techniques including polyvagal theory, mindfulness meditation, somatic psychology, and CBT.
Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

I have a specialization working with couples, families and individuals as well as in substance abuse/chemical dependency and addiction treatment (porn, sex & gambling). In many cases the depressed and anxious client is self medicating in some way to alter underlying feelings of depression, anxiety and intimacy/attachment issues. I use Somatic Experiencing, a very effective treatment for trauma/PTSD symptoms, helping the body and mind regulate itself. Clients in relationships with loved ones addicted or abusing substances can benefit from therapy to learn how to take care of themselves so as to limit the toxicity of proximity

If you suffer from developmental (trauma from childhood abuse) or acute trauma (for example, rape, assault, divorce, accident), I am trained in several modalities that can help. These include: Neurofeedback, which is exercise for the brain, improves self-regulation and calms the nervous system, building resiliency. EMDR is a process that desensitizes and reprocesses trauma. Somatic Experiencing releases pent up energy in the body that keeps us from completing and letting go of traumatic experiences. I use these methods, along with traditional psychodynamic talk therapy, in a kind and healing environment, to help you recover. .

As a Trauma Therapist, I can provide you with therapies like EMDR, Somatic or Natural Processing to assist in bringing the trauma to resolution in the brain, and in the body, as well.
Sometimes, when faced with many of life's challenges, we can find it difficult to reach out. Often fear or shame get in the way of asking for help. But there is hope. Working with a therapist, you can begin to feel validated and discover that you are not alone. Do you have a fear of abandonment or fear of intimacy? One or the other can mean you're either a Love Addict or Love Avoidant. I can teach you how to love yourself instead of looking for it in someone else, and bring down your walls and be relational.
