Are you experiencing emotional pain that has become too amplified to sustain in silence? Perhaps the burdens you have been carrying for so long are finally too heavy to manage alone. Unresolved past experiences, loss, dysfunctional relationships, and negative self-criticism can hinder our ability to recover from the difficulties life throws our way. Let’s work together to create a therapeutic relationship built on hope and trust.

I've found that having a dedicated space to unpack your heart with someone who unconditionally supports your growth & has a skill set/capacity to do so is priceless. Therapy isn't just for healing trauma, working with a disorder but is a preventative gift (to you and your loved ones).

Human lives are dynamic, unpredictable and full of challenges that can be exciting and life-affirming as they expose us to both the vulnerability and the beauty of our humanness. But sometimes life pushes us beyond the limits of our resilience – to the point of being overwhelmed or emotionally bereft. We may feel completely stuck, questioning everything about our lives, our values, and our purpose. These moments threaten our identity and selfhood as well as our relationships with others. We may feel alone, unlovable and unworthy, sometimes holding the weight of regret, secrets, and shame.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. In addition to speaking with you initially on the phone, I am happy to offer a free 50 minute consultation in my office so you can remove the guesswork and get a clear sense of what therapy with me will feel like. I bring a wealth of experience in treating everything from depression, anxiety and relationship challenges to ADHD, addictive behaviors and trauma. I have an excellent resource of referrals to physicians (both Western and naturopaths), psychiatrists, and nutritionists. Most importantly, I listen deeply to my clients and work collaboratively to facilitate change.

For many people it is hard to ask for help when it comes to sorting out the challenges of life. Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment. I work with people who often feel they are in crisis, experience anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self and struggle with the relationships in their lives but are motivated to gain insight and skills that are necessary to make lasting positive changes.

You possess all you need for psychological wholeness, yet this is often too challenging to bring forth alone. Together, we establish a safe space where wounds, old stories, limiting beliefs, pain or pleasure, traumas, any way that life has tamed you, and anything that is present can be worked with. The process of reconnecting and rewilding your soul and spirit can be lengthy and present with some pain and discomfort, but I meet you lovingly, with a heart-centered approach to honoring your sacred timing. I've specialized with adolescents and adults and also work with wolves in an integrative animal therapy program.

Many of my clients are those who tend to give too much, disconnect from their own needs and desires, feel depressed and anxious, and/or experience chronic pain. They are often highly sensitive and imaginative, helpers and healers, with literary, artistic, or philosophical leanings. They are all seeking to heal inner conflicts and relationship problems rooted in early attachment wounds or traumatic experiences. Most importantly, my clients have come to recognize it's time to do their inner work in order to create the outer life they want, and they continue to grow and deepen into their innate wisdom long after therapy has ended.

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in Somatic Psychotherapy. Somatic simply means "relating to the body" and in therapy this means that I have been uniquely trained to integrate the wisdom from our biology into treatment. Our bodies relate information that, should we choose to listen, can support our overall mental health. This way of working can have profound effects on anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, and disordered eating. The clients that receive maximum benefit from my approach have an open mind about how the body influences thoughts, not just how thoughts influence the body.
