"Have you ever wondered why you do the things you do? Or why your relationships aren't what you want them to be? Why does a part of you want to do one thing, yet another part wants to do something completely different? There are reasons behind everything we do, even when we're not aware of them. I can help you explore behaviors, and the feelings behind them, that affect your life and your relationships. Through a process called "Internal Family Systems," you can learn to understand and value yourself in ways you never thought possible."

"Are you suffering from the effects of trauma in your life? Are you finding that talk therapy alone is not shifting patterns of mood and behavior? I am a holistic psychotherapist and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and I specialize in understanding your nervous system. Trauma is destabilizing and leads to nervous system dysregulation and a sense of the loss of self. I incorporate SE to facilitate a sense of boundary, containment, and orientation to the present moment. I use a non-pathologizing perspective and view symptoms within the context of experience. I've found SE to be useful for individuals, couples, and families."
