I am EMDR Level 1 Certified, Gottman Level 2 Certified, am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and Certified Family Trauma Professional, and have completed some Somatic Experiencing and IFS training.
**Not accepting new clients at this time.** I love helping clients improve their quality of life, better their relationships, and increase internal connection. In today's society, it is often common to feel disconnected from others and even from ourselves. I want to help you to process relationships, experiences, thoughts, and emotions in order to better understand why you respond, think, or feel the way you do. I love working with individuals, families, and couples, and have experience working with those who have experienced relational or situational traumas and those with eating disorders, mood disorders, or behavioral disorders.

Welcome. My approach to therapy revolves around compassion, hope, and finding renewed meaning in life. I strive to help people release pain from the past, and worries about the future, so that they can find peace and fulfillment in everyday life. My style is personable and warm, and I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities based on what will be most helpful to each person. When applicable, I enjoy exploring the mind-body connection through both cognitive and somatic therapeutic approaches, which is largely influenced by my interest in mindfulness, attachment, and neurobiology perspectives.

Somatic Experiencing supports discharging fight/flight/freeze energy that becomes physically trapped in the nervous system and body tissue.
I know that finding the right therapist can feel overwhelming, especially when you're already struggling and in need of support. I believe that feeling seen and heard can serve as a powerfully reparative experience, especially in a space of non-judgment and acceptance. I am honored and committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment to help clients connect with themselves in an emotionally vulnerable, safe, and self-compassionate way. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, utilizing a neuro-biologically focused approach that restores the authentic-self with self-regulation, wholeness, and a feeling of aliveness.

Life can be overwhelming. Balancing relationships, work, parenting, physical health, mental health, and then finding time for “self-care” can feel impossible. However, just as the core strengthens as the muscles are worked - we have the ability to build our emotional muscle in balancing life. The tools I use come from Somatic Experiencing which is experiential and focused, but gentle. This modality supports connection between mind and body which leads to creating deeper awareness.

I utilize approaches including Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, Brainspotting, sand tray, drama therapy, and expressive-based interventions to support you in regaining connection and regulation.
We all have our own inherent sense of wisdom and creativity. For many of us, and for many reasons, we lose touch with this internal sense, often leaving us feeling lost, confused, and disconnected or in conflict with ourselves and others. We find ways to help us survive, but my goal is to help you reconnect with this sense, and find ways to move out of just surviving and into more adaptive and authentic ways of connecting.

IFS/ego state and somatic approaches supplement my practice to overcome shame, confront fear, and cultivate compassion.
I have specialized training in traumatic stress and addiction and use an attachment focused perspective taking special care to understand present difficulties in the context of early relational experiences. As a therapist I believe that symptoms resulting from stressful life experiences can be treated using validated scientific interventions. Addiction can often accompany traumatic stress. In an effort to cope, individuals frequently find themselves trapped by the comforting yet costly effects of addictive or compulsive behaviors.

I find utilizing a somatic focused EMDR approach allows for increased awareness and deep healing.
My ideal client would be somebody who wants to be more present and is motivated to heal. I seek to help clients to develop the awareness they need to improve the quality of their relationships and ability to be with themselves. I enjoy working with people who struggle in these areas. Through a compassionate approach I seek to help my clients find self love and a deep sense of connection. I want to help people release the burdens that prevent them from having this. People of all genders and sexual orientations are welcome.

My ideal client wants to grow and heal from the past. However, sometimes the past can hold you down. Anxiety, addiction, deep fear, stress, depression, and other unhealthy behaviors can be signs you may be stuck in the past or in a lot of pain. Many of my clients have often experienced events in their lives such as grief and loss, trauma, unhealthy relationships, divorce, neglect, feeling lost and empty, and/or deep rejection. I work very hard to support my clients by challenging them, validating them, and holding them 100% accountable.

Unbeknownst to many, the stigma associated with "therapy" is lifting. Society is waking up and realizing overall health needs to be a non-negotiable. My passion lies in supporting & educating clients on brain/nervous system health; increased awareness on thought/behavioral patterns that exacerbate overall stress, feelings of unworthiness, and unhealthy cycles. My ideal client is ready to do some hard work and be challenged, curious and brave enough to look inside, get honest with self, work on vulnerability, and face their fears. Together, we will identify and dig out the roots that no longer serve them and plant new seeds.
