I believe in our innate capacity to develop and heal. Is it hard for you to feel calm, does your body vibrate with anxiety? Are you stuck? I know it is possible to protect the sensitive aspects of yourself so that your body is a safe place to live. You can likely change your relationship with traumatic events or difficult family history. I trust that when you mindfully observe what is happening within yourself in the present moment--especially as it relates to reactions to past or future events--you can gain a closer relationship to yourself and your life. The disparate and conflicted parts can come together for more wholeness. You will be able to discover or recognize important patterns of feelings, impulses, beliefs, or physical nervous system activation. This helps you deepen healthy habits that are personal resources, and strengthen your capacity to transform patterns that no longer serve you or your relationships. As you allow feelings to move, thoughts to be more flexible, and your body to take action new possibilities can arise for your personal development, relationships, and work.
I'll work with you to co-create a high level of safety, understanding, and acceptance. I deeply value collaboration in therapy, and want to support your authentic, honest expression that helps process trauma, or family history, or current challenging stresses at your best pace. As wounds become less sensitive, you will discover and create new ways to change your relationship to the past and to your present life--even with the inevitable surprises that no one can control. My work with you can foster deep self-knowledge, a more balanced nervous system an authentic expression of feeling, clearer thinking, and a kinder relationship with your body. Solutions can emerge and benefits related to change can start right away. Often my clients say "this therapy feels different."

More Info About My Practice
I also work with therapists, consulting on trauma, especially related to somatic issues, body activation and memory states, as well as dissociated parts, alienated by trauma. I can help therapists expand their work or collaborate with your therapist in your interest. I invite you to call or email so we can begin a conversation to support your needs and interest. You are welcome to schedule a free 30 minute consultation to help you in the important decision of choosing a therapist. I hope I can be of service to you.
