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, and have practiced social work since 2007. My approach is collaborative, with an emphasis on promoting empowerment and competency. 

FOCUS

My background is in working with survivors of trauma and with the innate wisdom of the body to heal. I also work with those experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, chronic pain, addiction, and those struggling during life transitions.

Survivors of trauma experience overwhelming symptoms that can present challenges in everyday life. It has been a privilege to help my clients heal.

METHODS

I incorporate the body-mind connection in my practice and 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.
