I specialize in helping traumatized people increase their capacity for joy, sleep better at night, get along better with the people they love, and muster up the courage to walk out their front door morning, noon and night.
I am trained in somatic experiencing, a special modality designed specifically to treat PTSD and other anxiety related problems. I combine S.E. (somatic experiencing) with a varitety of adjunctive interventions like mindfulness training, guided imagery, CBT, and long list of creative options to choose from.
Life is a precious gift, please don't waste it by being stuck in the past. Release the pain of residual trauma, allow the memories to fade into the back of your mind and live fully in the present. Life should feel like the gift it is, not the burden it may have become.

More Info About My Practice

EXPERIENCE

My background includes 20+ 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The SOLUTION lies in having gratitude towards yourself for getting this far, releasing outdated beliefs and behaviors, and embracing the knowledge that it is now safe to be an older, wiser version of yourself.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.
