"I offer insight, compassion, gentle challenging, and respect in my client relationships. Clients find me straightforward and willing to back-up or change directions if that helps us make progress. I use somatic, body-centered approaches alongside traditional talk therapy. I find this approach works well for treating trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, substance use, stress and overwhelm. I am also trained in Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples, which gets to the heart of dealing with relationship issues and destructive cycles, which I enjoy very much."

I provide individual and family therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. I use a variety of treatment techniques including cognitive, psychodynamic, and client-centered therapies as well as behavior management strategies.

As a massage therapist for the past 23 years, I've noticed how people hold patterns of pain, trauma, and negative energy in their bodies. Now as a therapist I help people who may be carrying the weight of their past, feel their life is out of balance, or who are not living up to their full potential.

"When difficult things happen--trauma, loss, extreme stress--our brains and bodies have an amazing capacity cope; for example, we are flooded with adrenalin to help us survive or we go into shock to protect from the depths of loss. However, sometimes events overwhelm all our capacities, and we get stuck in those events. Using both talk therapy and EMDR, I can help you understand how your mind and body is attempting to cope, learn how to reduce, tolerate and manage the lingering effects, appreciate and reconnect to your emotions, become more embodied, process past events, and find meaningful purpose and connection in the present."

You might ask what's the point? Nothing is working. You've tried to talk to people in your life, but you don't want to burden them and fear they wouldn't understand; or worse- they could judge you.
