I offer somatic psychotherapy (touch and tablework) for people who are working on trauma, relationship and attachment issues. This work may also bring up family of origin issues that may also be unresolved. I combine somatic, IFS, and attachment modalities. My somatic training also provides expertise in helping those with chronic illness or pain and how this is related to mental health. Somatic work also is for those with after-effects of surgeries or accidents.

I specialize in narcissistic abuse recovery, complex trauma and dissociation. Are tired of the same toxic relationships? Are you are ready to heal from your trauma and not repeat the past? Maybe, you can no longer trust your intuition to determine who is good for you and who isn't? You feel like no matter what you do, you can't seem to get away from toxic relationships, friendships or experiencing yet another trauma. You are struggling to cope with the trauma caused by the relationship. Friends and family don't understand and you feel alone. You are ready to heal and make sure you never find yourself in this position again. ​

Finding the right therapist can be a daunting task - when you are suffering, it can be especially difficult to make this decision. To find relief, you need to be able to connect with your provider, build trust, and explore who you are and your issues in a safe and understanding space. We might be a good fit if you are curious about yourself and want to learn more about how your mind and emotions work, particularly if your thoughts and feelings are interfering with your quality of life, or you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues or have a history of trauma.

I support people of diverse backgrounds seeking to manage stress, depression/anxiety and heal from experiences of trauma, sexual abuse, and/or domestic violence.
Counseling is a space where you don’t have to pretend everything is okay or hide what you’re going through. You do that enough in other areas of your life. You do not have to repeat those patterns here. In counseling, all parts of you are welcome and all the things you have gone through can be talked about. My goal is to work together to reclaim your life through talk and connection by affirming your needs, identity and beliefs while urging you to make informed decisions about therapy.

Though I have experience with most types of problems from job stress, substance abuse, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and life transitions, my specialty is trauma work.
I believe therapy is a process helps people to fully participate in their lives. I use several therapeutic styles and a collaborative approach. Together, we identify "the problem," then explore obstacles that block the process. The goal is wholeness and healing and you, as the client, decide what that looks like. Building a safe, respectful and trusting relationship is essential for success ---- as the client defines "success." I also believe that even in the most dire of circumstances, we can find joy, hope and even laughter. I enjoy playing a part in that with my clients.

Because early developmental trauma occurs before your were able to speak, I create a special treatment program that works healing your earliest trauma through the mind and the body! Your in-depth treatment plan will include special body psychotherapy sessions along with traditional counseling.
Things aren't working inside of you. You may have put together a fairly decent life but on the inside, you aren't enjoying it. You may be more and more uncomfortable in your body. You know the "right" things to do but they don't seem to get to the heart of the problem. You may even have tried therapy before without it truly helping. It may not have gone deep enough. You are probably experiencing early developmental trauma that was never properly addressed. Early developmental trauma patterns have a way of resurfacing in times of crisis and change.

I am a trauma and multiculturally-informed counselor.
You might be hoping to improve your relationship with food, or to heal from the societal messages you've absorbed about your body, or to simply understand yourself better. I believe that revitalizing our relationship with our bodies and with food is not just a deeply personal and individual journey, but it is also a matter of societal reclamation and community-inspired advocacy. Messages we hear from our families, communities, and media can make us feel disconnected from our physical experience, and in therapy you can work towards regenerating that bond in a way that is empowering and life-changing.
