As a practitioner I am curious, open-minded, compassionate, and non-judgmental. I love my work and cannot think of any greater privilege than being able to assist in the healing of others. I honor this privilege by listening deeply to my clients with my mind, body, spirit, and heart.

Based on my training and understanding of current neuroscience research, I have come to believe that the difficult experiences we have faced are stored in our body in complex ways. This often leads to coping skills that may cause physical, emotional, and spiritual distress. I am curious about these aspects of an individual and believe that all individuals have the innate ability to heal themselves and that healing is an integrative process. As a result, I believe in a holistic, relational approach to healing that integrates the mind, body, and spirit.

I utilize EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) as well as somatic (body-centered) and mindfulness practices in combination with depth psychology to assist you in understanding how your past experiences have influenced your belief systems and what your body is trying to communicate. For those that are interested, I can also integrate Reiki energy healing into our work. I provide a safe container to explore past experiences, body sensations, and belief systems which you feel may be limiting you from experiencing your authentic self in its wholeness. Together we will forge a path of discovery assisting you in healing the wounds of your past so you can experience wholeness and live a more joyful life.

I specialize in trauma, anxiety, and depression and work with adults, couples and adolescents. It is important to find a practitioner you feel comfortable and safe with. I encourage you to reach out and schedule a free initial phone consultation to see if we are a good fit. I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
