"Are you working towards a fulfilling life but feel stuck or overwhelmed? Are you hurting inside and unsure of where to turn? Most of our struggles stem from our relationships with others and we often need tools for healing these wounds. Although talk is helpful, the research shows that tapping into the right brain where emotions are housed is vital in transforming long-standing issues or limiting beliefs. Utilizing Experiential approaches including EMDR, Brainspotting, inner parts work, and Somatic therapies we can heal the mind and body. "

"The relationship is everything. We aren't ourselves when we don't feel comfortable with someone. I understand this, and so my work centers on establishing a working relationship that fosters collaboration and mutual understanding. My motto is: "You are the expert on you." So I rely on you to help me understand your values and approach to life. When I have a sense of who you are (and of us as a team) we get to embark on identifying the patterns and pitfalls, so as to increase awareness and focus on making meaningful changes that are right for you."
