I provide therapy for adults 18 years old and over in a safe and non-judgmental environment. I can help you heal from past or current Trauma, and help reduce Trauma's often disturbing, intrusive and long lasting effects. I also work with individuals to help manage anxiety, depression, stress, emotional eating, relationship problems, abandonment fears, or grief and loss. My approach is holistic and mind / body oriented. I combine traditional talk therapy with mindfulness and embodiment based techniques. I consider it a privilege to be entrusted with working with people in this vital, vulnerable and healing way.

You are living a daily battle in your head about what you can eat, how much you should exercise, if you are worthy of taking up space. You are consumed by counting calories and by the negative voice inside that tells you, you’ll never be good enough or thin enough, smart enough or pretty enough. You are fed up with how the society/culture tells you how you should look and feel and behave. Your behaviors have you feeling exhausted and depleted and you wonder how you can go on another day. Others may think you have it all together on the outside, but the mental torture inside is killing you and feel like your life is shrinking.

Sadness, grief and worry are normal human experiences. However, when they endure for long periods of time or when you are overwhelmed by the effects of stress or trauma, if you have difficulty sleeping or concentrating or you feel hopeless or helpless, then it may be time to visit a skilled therapist.

I help empower sensitive, empathic adults to recognize and honor their own needs and voices. You might have noticed yourself saying yes to others when you wanted to say no, or a tendency to take care of others, sacrificing yourself. Perhaps you haven’t even recognized your own needs many times, being so attuned to others. I offer expertise, guidance and support for you to better recognize. understand, honor, and tend to your unique needs and your valued relationships, and navigate these challenges according to your own Inner Compass.

I also know the level of healing and transformation that occurs when we have such a connection. This is the therapeutic relationship, and I deeply appreciate my role within it.

It’s late. Today’s work is finally done. You’re the last one to bed, after snapping at everyone else. You pause...Instead of enjoying the moment of peace and quiet reflection that you long for, there’s a vague sense of dread. It seems that whenever you stop, you find yourself filled with anxiety. You feel off-center. Never at ease. Never enough. You don’t want to go to bed because you know it’ll be another restless night of tossing and turning, alone--again. No one gets it. You’re not just tired, you're weary. That weariness gnaws at you. That ache, that longing for something different, something better, something more...

Trauma can broadly be defined as any event or situation that has a lasting negative impact. EMDR is an highly effective form of psychotherapy which harnesses all we know about human attachment and neurobiology to heal trauma and to reprocess disturbing life experiences. Treatment focuses on past experiences as the basis for clinical complaints; current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs, and sensations; and positive experiences needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and emotional health. Focused protocols are used, and no homework or detailed descriptions of the events are required.
