However, you are not alone. I aim to create a safe, warm, empathetic space so you or your child/adolescent can find relief and power in sharing your story. I specialize in working with children and adolescents, as well as with adults who have experienced trauma.

Clients present with many concerns, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, and relationship issues to name a few. Everyone experiences emotional ups and downs, successes and failures. However, when one is stuck in the "downs" and the "failures" we may feel overwhelmed, anxious & depressed. Often one turns to unhealthy coping such as alcohol and drugs, eating, compulsive behaviors - shopping and exercising, isolation or avoidance. Untangling the unique threads of your life; and understanding how they affect you can be the beginning to feeling more in charge and living according to your values and desires.

Talk therapy forms the foundation for my all work. Your story is important. When clients seek to deepen their healing process I help them take the next steps through somatically based therapies. The integration of bodymind (soma) can help clients conquer depression, recover from trauma, relieve anxiety, cope with limiting medical and physical conditions, and increase their capacity to embrace life. As an Exercise Specialist, I have been helping people overcome back problems for over 26 years with my Active EASE program. I also lead InterPlay, a seriously fun way to come at things from a different direction.

Do you feel like you swing between constant worry and overthinking to periods of extreme exhaustion, numbness, and shutdown? For many of us, this state of constant survival has become part of our daily lives. For valid reasons, we can become masters at under or over-responding to our body’s distress signals. If you are reading this, you are already becoming aware this is an unsustainable relationship. You know on a deeper level it is time to make changes that lead to a life beyond survival. I help individuals understand the connection between their bodies, emotions, beliefs and how each influence overall wellbeing.

I work with people, not labels. It’s about you, not a diagnosis. And it’s about me, not a degree. It becomes about us working together for your goals, whatever those are-I can help. We’re so surprised when we feel something but it “doesn’t make sense”. We “should” ourselves & judge. We waste a helluva lot of time doing this. How often have you tried to think yourself out of a feeling? I know!! Me too. Doesn't work. Together we can figure out how & why you think & feel the way you do. You can't think your way out of depression, anxiety, trauma or anything else. You can talk & feel yourself out, though. Here is what I believe.
