Explore

As a therapist, I offer individuals, families, couples and teens the opportunity to safely and confidently explore your experiences.  I offer a unique therapy experience that incorporates talk, breathwork, writing, movement and quiet contemplation.

Who I care for

Become empowered about your life experience, your behavior and choices.  I offer thoughtful, collaborative, compassionate, client-centered therapy for people dealing with:

  • anxiety and depression
  • grief and loss
  • recovery from traumatic event or illness
  • family dynamics after trauma or loss
  • somatic representations of stress, trauma or sadness
  • developmental milestones/adjustments to new life situations

Mindfulness and Trauma-Informed Specialty

In my practice, I call attention to how the body is responding (mindfulness) to narrative, discussion, emotion. I guide you through breathwork and occasional physical movement to allow the body to feel safe. By being in relationship with the body, one can learn to be present, relax and shift. In the presence of a skilled therapist, these tools can help you heal and feel more in control of your life.

Neurobiological scientific evidence shows that those who experience trauma (even “small” events) can have the experience of being kind of stuck feeling hurt or scared. I carefully address this, usually through body awareness, so your brain receives the message that you are safe and real healing can begin. This can have tremendous effects on the quality of your present life and relationships.

Collaborative Experience

I am aware and curious about my own experience in our sessions in addition to witnessing your personal process. Together, we will develop personal and inter-personal skills to integrate into your day-to-day life. Mindfulness tools can be accessed at anytime.
