My approach is rooted in the understanding that human experience is a unique blend of physical sensations, emotional feelings and mental process. My therapeutic methodology unites mind, body and spirit by employing an integration of evidence based practices including somatic psychology, Gestalt psychotherapy, art therapy and DBT. I provide this multifaceted approach because I understand the necessity of meeting people where they're at. I understand that not everyone thinks, feels and experiences life in the same way. I enjoy the process of discovering each new client's individual way of perceiving the world. It is in the discovery of an individual's unique language that I can respectfully connect with each person, couple, family and group that I work with. In the true spirit of client centered care I work to boost your conscious awareness of your personal goals for treatment, uncover your natural strengths and abilities while integrating the fragmented wounds and unsolved issues that block your personal growth, success and relationship satisfaction.

More Info About My Practice

EXPERIENCE

My background includes 19 years of direct client care in a variety of settings. My areas of expertise include posttraumatic stress disorder, couples counseling, depression, grief and anxiety related problems. Within the addiction community I have had the opportunity to use my skills in treating the unresolved trauma that is often at the core of addiction related problems. I use this integrative approach to invite people to rediscover their passion for living, loving and being of service to others.

What Makes up a Problem?

For most of us, the coping skills that worked great in childhood often become troublesome in adulthood. For instance, perhaps pretending to be invisible was a great strategy for avoiding the attention of overworked, short tempered, angry or depressed care givers. Fast forward a couple of years and your perfected disappearing act leaves you lonely, unfulfilled and feeling disconnected from the world. The PROBLEM is that your internal software (your nervous system) is probably operating from a place of unresolved fear, anger, grief or trauma.

The SOLUTION lies in having gratitude towards yourself for getting this far, releasing outdated beliefs and behaviors, and embracing the knowledge that it is now safe to be an older, wiser version of yourself. In other words, we're going to have to give your operating system a couple decades worth of updates. Armed with a healthier and more flexible nervous system, your ability to perceive the world as it is now (instead of how it felt when you were younger) allows you to interact with your friends, family, and environment from a stronger and healthier adult perspective.
