My work is grounded in Attachment Theory, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), and somatic based approaches to trauma and PTSD.
As a therapist, I am committed to individual and collective healing, operating from the belief that people change in the presence of other people. This is what makes the therapeutic experience so transformative – the relational work of therapy provides a new context where, together with a safe other, you can seek to understand and unlearn old patterns that no longer serve you, while learning to navigate through your inner and outer world with more courage and comfort. I work to create shared experiences based in curiosity and safety, speaking to the parts of you and your story that may feel stuck or alone.

As a Certified Hakomi Therapist my offering is a Somatic Experiential Psychotherapy modality that is gentle, non-judgmental, and compassionate; a form of assisted self-study where the client studies his or her responses to explorations in a mindful state of consciousness. We become aware and touch upon the very organizing experiences that have been a part of our habitual life - the patterns that no long serve us. We increase clarity, creativity, confidence and awareness and break through obstacles towards ease, connection and vitality. I am available for phone or online sessions.

My therapy approach integrates various modalities including Behavioral therapies, Emotionally-focused, & Somatic experiencing.
Recovery is for everyone. Certain seasons (or years) can leave us feeling stuck, disconnected, overwhelmed, and fearful. Life can be devastatingly full of loss with little hope of recovery at all. I believe in order to experience healing and walk in recovery, it requires a willingness to confront the darker parts of life. Yet it also requires acknowledging our unique strengths and resources- those things that keep us going. Are you open to exploring your own road of recovery?

Knowing this, I operate from a richly trauma-informed Psychodynamic Relational model, utilizing somatic techniques, nervous system regulation, and evidenced-based approaches.
Do you find yourself stuck repeating the same patterns in your life even though you want to change? Are you experiencing a stressful life circumstance or event that you can't seem to recover from on your own? Do you feel ready to change something about your life or the way you relate to yourself and others but have no idea where to begin? Are you in need of better coping skills? Do you wish you had a better understanding of how to process your emotions? If you answered yes to any of these questions, therapy might be a good fit for you.

I am informed by Internal Family Systems (IFS), Resilience-Focused Narrative Therapy, Attachment Therapy, and Somatic Awareness, with a social justice and trauma-informed lens, throughout my work.
Welcome. I work with individual adults to expand their self-awareness, find balance, and create positive changes through a non-pathologizing and holistic approach. I believe that feeling witnessed and validated in the whole of our identities and experiences is part of what leads to change. We will be intentional about understanding your lived experiences and how they have affected you, what systems you live within, your beliefs, your personal identities, and what makes you resilient. I believe that expanding this awareness can increase the confidence and compassion needed for healing and creating an authentic and fulfilling life.

Using somatic awareness, mindfulness techniques, brain spotting, self-compassion exercises, nervous system regulation and addressing damaging repetitive patterns we can build a new foundation of hope and resiliency.
When you are triggered, have a trauma response, or in a PTSD loop it is overwhelming; this can be scary, and frustrating. Living life from this place makes it hard to connect with others and to know your sense of self. Challenging patterns become en-grained as feeling powerless leads to loss of hope. My goal with you is to help you acquire skills/tools to feel more embodied and to change the repetitive challenging loop by understanding more deeply the patterns at play. Self-empowerment is essential in our work together as my desire is to help you take your life back with confidence and ease.

Deep at my core, I would like to believe I can work with anyone regarding any potential concern. I do not wish to discriminate or weed out any clients in that way, it feels wrong to me. There very well may be some clients that don't feel I meet their needs and that is certainly okay with me. I do not bring a lot of structure, guidance, or advice to my counseling and that is not always what some clients need or desire. My ideal client is someone looking to change and grow, someone that wants to be the best version of themselves in a holistic manner.

Being a person is hard work; our lives are complex and navigating the world is challenging even in the best of circumstances. What we all long for, a sense of wellness, is not just the absence of affliction, it is the presence of vitality. Each of us has the capacity for this vitality, where we live fully and whole-heartedly. Clients who find my services most helpful tend to be those who are looking for a new way of living, who seek a deeper understanding of their feelings, their relationships, and their life.

Somatic Therapists

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
