I am advanced level somatic experiencing trained.
As a therapist, my greatest joy is impacting my clients in a way that empowers them to make pivotal life changes. I am inspired daily by the courage my clients show in their journey to self-discovery and self-improvement. In the past 18 years working as a therapist, I've seen in my own life that real change stems from personal insight. It is fulfilling to help my clients achieve a paradigm shift that leads to life transformation. I am humbled by the compassion they are able to show others upon reaching a deeper understanding of themselves.

I have seven years' training in Somatic Experiencing, an approach to healing overwhelm in the nervous system.
I believe we are listened into our voice and that "what most people really need is a good listening to" (Mary Lou Casey). In my work with clients, I strive to create a safe and resonant space in which clients can feel seen and heard and begin to see and hear themselves in new and different ways. I believe we all have an innate drive toward growth and healing which can, at times, become overwhelmed by life circumstances - both past and present - and that in the context of a supportive, empowering therapeutic relationship, we can rediscover our strengths and our deepest knowing.

My practice is centered in a somatic psychotherapy called Hakomi.
Do you keep recycling the same issues in relationships? Can't seem to move forward or achieve your heart's desire in life/career? Do you long for deeper connection with others but feel blocked by heart wounds and limiting beliefs? Building a relationship with someone who truly cares and believes in your healing is an important first step. Armed with a gentle presence and a ready laugh, I strive to create an environment where clients can get excited about the process and the change it creates!

My training in Somatic Experiencing and application of neuroscience to our work is extremely useful.
Clients describe my therapeutic style as interactive, warm, and reassuring. It isn't easy to disclose personal challenges, but my clients have responded pretty quickly to my efforts to build rapport, explore issues, and experiment with solutions. Sometimes this work has been about learning new coping skills, and sometimes the work has been about digging deeply into the past to uproot old patterns that dampen the spirit. In my work with clients--whether individual or couples--I include a focus on integrating body awareness into the work of the heart and mind, so that more profound healing may take place.

I am EMDR- trained and I use a lot of attachment and somatic elements in my work.
I believe that trauma is the universal experience --we all carry trauma with us--which is why I'm a trauma therapist with a focus on complex PTSD. I am EMDR-trained and it is a primary part of my practice, but I draw on many therapeutic modalities to meet my client's needs. To me, therapy is about releasing the things that prevent us from moving toward ease in our daily lives, in our relationships, and in the way we show up in the world.

I have found my own powerful approach that blends EMDR, somatic psychotherapy and working with wounded parts of ourselves more directly.
We all seek out therapeutic support for different reasons. Some of us have survived painful life experiences that we can't seem to get past. Others are stuck in the cycle of anxiety or depression and have not found resolution. Some of us still react out of survival skills that we may have needed as a child, but can't stop them from coming up in our present life. I create a container that enables you to heal your nervous system, build emotional resiliency and shift harmful mental constructs. I want to help my clients find resolution, not relief.

My therapeutic approach is one of warmth, collaboration, gentle challenges, and laughter! In sessions we will explore the mind-body connection and listen to the insight it offers us, incorporating mindfulness-based techniques, somatic experiencing, Person-Centered, and Internal Family Systems principles.
There is a wealth of wisdom already within you. Together, let's journey inward to find healing, growth, and new revelations. Therapy is for YOU, and together we will find the methods that best foster your growth, whether we are interpreting your favorite song, making pro/con lists, finding moments of silence, or creating a safe place for you to say the thing you’ve never been able to say. Some areas of passion I enjoy working with include religious deconstruction/reconstruction, LGBTQ+, cultivating sexual satisfaction, religious trauma, spirituality, sexual shame/trauma, identity formation, and life transitions.

During counseling sessions, I use a combination of EMDR, Somatic Experiencing and play therapy.
There are difficult things that are hard to talk about and you may carry them quietly for years and years. They weigh on you, causing emotional, physical and relational problems. If you've reached a point where you feel that you can no longer do it alone, I would like to help. As a counselor, I will listen, and will work together in helping you with what has or is happening. Our goal will be to accept yourself unconditionally and determine the best next steps to overcome what you are facing.

No judgment here, only curiosity :) I provide a holistic, integrative approach tailored to your individual needs that can include body work ( Somatic Experiencing), the Existential & Attachment lenses, as well as traditional modalities & our good ol’ friend, humor.
The human experience can be overwhelming. We all have experienced trauma - whether relational, mental, physical, spiritual, or emotional. We can find healing & our way forward in the safe space of a therapeutic relationship as we learn more about ourselves through genuine, non-judgmental curiosity. Learning how to be safely in our body (embodied) - with all our different parts, experiences, memories, feelings, thoughts, images etc. - can be life changing. By regulating the nervous system, we can teach your body that you are safe on a cellular level.

Using Somatic Experiencing, I help clients discover "what their bodies have to say" about the things their minds may already know.
We are biologically wired from birth to need safe, accepting connections with others. When we get those, we develop openness to relationships and resilience to cope with life’s inevitable pain. If you lacked that support, patterns can develop that inadvertently keep you stuck in pain. These patterns can include self-criticism, worry, anger, lethargy, numbness, shame, guilt, fear of closeness, and more. My work focuses on helping people with past abuse and neglect rediscover their body’s innate ability to rebalance from stress, relate to themselves with more care, and relate to others more confidently and authentically.

My post-doctoral studies are focused on science-based orientations including interpersonal neurobiology, attachment science, neuroscience with respect to trauma and the body, & brain/body approaches (mindfulness/meditation, breathwork, somatic experiencing).
I am a licensed psychologist with over 20 years of experience working with children, families, and adults in schools and in private practice. My work in recent years is primarily with young adults and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, interpersonal relationships, self-criticism/shame, parenting, and trauma. My clients are seeking ways to manage their own emotional dysregulation/stress response, foster a healthy sense of self, grow relational skills to feel more socially connected with others (children, loved ones, friends, etc.), and/or process past trauma(s) that are interfering with present life.

I work with people who have experienced trauma - this can mean anything from trauma that comes from difficult relationships, to PTSD, war, sexual abuse, accidents, surgeries, and less-than-ideal childhoods. My somatic training also provides expertise in helping those with chronic illness or pain and how this is related to mental health. With couples, my focus is on fostering closeness in order to build more security and enjoyment together. I also have expertise in helping couples with infidelity issues.

My approach is mindfulness based, psychodynamic, somatic , attachment oriented, holistic, person-centered and eclectic.
Clients normally describe me as someone that they feel is compassionate and actively interested in their well-being, non-judgmental, and with whom they feel accepted and comfortable around. I am on the path to help people heal holistically with mindfulness and presence, with tools that can be used for deeper self-understanding, finding answers within, and releasing psychological blockages. I am always on the lookout for where we can facilitate neurological body/brain healing of the psyche using the latest neuroscience-based, whole body protocols for anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, depression, and PTSD.
