Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

Do you feel alone and powerless? Are you experiencing anxiety and lack of trust in your relationships? Do you keep finding yourself in stressful situations you thought you had evolved from? Try as you might, you just can’t get a grasp on developing healthy boundaries for yourself? A lack of balance within yourself can manifest as a painful day-to-day. You’re searching for an integrated life, one where your emotions, your intuition, and your spirit can coexist. This comes with confronting wounds, developing loving boundaries, and trusting yourself to the fullest. Such a life is within your grasp.

I specialize in trauma, anxiety, chronic pain and relationship difficulties. As a somatic therapist certified in EMDR I work with the body-mind connection. I have found this to be more effective with quicker results than traditional talk therapy. EMDR has an effect on the way the brain process information, which helps a memory become just a memory and not something that effects us viscerally. The combination of tuning into the body (with somatic techniques) while using EMDR bi-lateral simulation releases emotions that have been trapped in the body. By doing this many symptoms of anxiety, depression and chronic pain are relieved.

Emotional pain and mental challenges can overwhelm us and keep us from reaching our goals. In these times it is often necessary to seek professional assistance to move us past the ruts in our lives. I work best with people who have had difficulty with relating to their emotions, have experienced significant loss, trauma, or death of a loved one, and are navigating transitions in their life. I also specialize in evaluating how the brain is impacting behaviors and day-to-day functioning. I provide neuropsychological, learning disorder, and diagnostic assessments, and therapy with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults.

We all have unique stories that have shaped us. I believe healing is most transformative when we begin to understand the intersections that make us whole: the parts of ourselves that we value and celebrate as well as the parts that we criticize, deny or dislike. I want to know how you feel about your story and how it has impacted your sense of wholeness. My goal is to help you build a better understanding of the pain, distress or fear that holds you back from achieving the life you want so you can begin to make room for more joy and a meaningful existence.

In all phases of life, we face constant change and unexpected circumstances. Even for those who are strongly independent and resilient, life can be overwhelming at times. Therapy can be a space to explore the parts of life that feel uncertain and unmanageable, and identify where you want to go from here. Building the foundation for growth in therapy starts by creating a safe, genuine space where people can feel heard, understood, and valued for the person they are. I believe that people can foster long-term growth through understanding their journey, connecting with their true emotions, and empowering choice with authenticity.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging, so I recommend that you call at least three people and talk on the phone to see if you have a good sense of a connection. Noticing how someone listens to you, even in this initial, small way, can save you time and effort in setting up consultations.
