As a therapist who specializes in trauma, I believe in our ability to heal from our past experiences, restore balance and well-being, and to experience ourselves as stronger, more resilient, and compassionate in the process. 

Therapy builds awareness around our internal landscape so we can come up with effective solutions to ease suffering. 

I will work with you to help you achieve your goals, whether you are looking for support after a traumatic event, during a stressful time, or want to change long-standing patterns. 

 

I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice, with over a decade of experience. I firmly believe in the power of therapy to help us reach our fullest potential. My approach is collaborative, with an emphasis on promoting empowerment and competency. 

FOCUS

My background is in working with child and adult survivors of trauma, and with those experiencing unresolved emotional hurt from childhood, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, and difficulty during life transitions. I have also supported helping professionals who experience symptoms of vicarious trauma to cope with the impact of their work.

Overwhelming feelings can present challenges in everyday life. It has been a privilege to help guide my clients in understanding their reactions, developing internal resources, and experiencing relief.

METHODS

I provide supportive, integrative, and evidence-based therapy.

I incorporate the body-mind connection in my practice and believe in the innate wisdom of the body to heal. I utilize a variety of approaches to support each individual. 

Trauma-focused psychotherapy • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy • Child-Parent psychotherapy • Psychodynamic and insight oriented therapies  • Cognitive behavioral therapy • Stress-management • Relaxation and mindfulness

I offer a free phone consultation to answer any questions you may have about therapy, and about working with me.
