My approach is built on a core belief that you are a self-healing being. Unfortunately, you and I both often find ourselves without the space and support that we need to fully process our experiences and we get a little stuck. As a therapist, I help you create more quiet and space in your life, access and strengthen your own resilience, and let go of what is no longer serving you … allowing you to get unstuck and to “unfold” toward your inherent wholeness and health as a human being.
I love working with adults from age 18 and up into their 80’s and 90’s! My clients are truly my greatest teachers. I strive to create a welcoming space for all people, inclusive of gender, sexual orientation, ethnic heritage, cultural group, and belief system. All humans welcome, period.
I use a gentle and effective integration of Hakomi-based Sensorimotor Processing, Post-Traumatic Growth Somatic Therapy, and EMDR to help you heal unresolved traumas. By helping you pay attention to your body and nervous system, you will get to gently unwind and release places of contraction and fear, leading to a sense of increased openness, freedom, ease, and greater capacity for life’s joys.

The Hakomi Method is a mindfulness-based somatic depth psychotherapy … which is to say, it supports you in utilizing mindfulness to bring kindness and curiosity to the deeper parts of yourself, paying special attention to how your body is expressing things.
I find this way of working to be powerful and effective. It can help you come to know yourself in a new way, and increase your sense of possibility and freedom in life. What also makes me passionate about this style of working is that it uses gentle nurture to bring about change. It is non-coercive and collaborative, and allows me to support you, as a whole, growing person, no matter what you are working on. Read more …
Holistic Clinical Supervision
I provide holistic, ethically-driven clinical supervision and consultation to new counselors (LPCCs) working on supervised hours towards full licensure, and to fully-licensed psychotherapists (LPC, LMFT, LCSW, etc.) who wish to strengthen their practices of somatically-minded methods. Read more …
“I want to know
if you know
how to melt into that fierce heat of living
the center of your longing.”– David Whyte
