With over 10 years of clinical work in trauma-related issues and PTSD, including symptoms related to neurologic disorders, I work with clients using EMDR and MBSR, towards alleviating symptoms of anxiety, depression, as well as self-esteem, grief and chronic pain. We can begin to experience relief from trauma and anxiety by recognizing our inherent healthy selves through body-mind awareness, creative inquiry, and artistic expression.​​ The work we do is based on the idea that we connect to our higher selves and each other through Creativity, Curiosity and Compassion. Creativity is what helps us to re-frame situations and see things through a new perspective using art, music, movement, meditation, creative writing, visualization and mindfulness meditation. Curiosity allows us to discover and use new tools to work with the underlying causes of current or past difficulties, helping us to discover new possibilities of a healthy and happy life. Compassion is what drives the therapeutic rapport in each session and allows us the opportunity to safely express ourselves, release held emotions, and provide a sense of safety in order to move in new and healthy directions.

Through mindfulness tools, creative inquiry, and basic techniques of stress reduction, we can begin to connect to the part of ourselves that holds the knowledge and wisdom of the body and the mind. I am certified in EMDR for trauma and symptoms of PTSD and have training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and EFT (emotional freedom technique). The process of psychotherapy includes a journey of self-inquiry and towards self-love. In order for the body-mind to heal, we start with tapping into our vulnerability to gain the strength we need to resonate in the frequency of happiness.

If you are interested in a free 20 minute phone consultation, please contact me anytime and I hope we can work together on your healing journey.
