Are you ready for something different? I work within a holistic multicultural framework addressing the mind- body synergy in its ability to heal and sustain wellness.

My approach is client centered. I do not treat you like a diagnoses. A somatic lens offers the ability to be in residence with you, and honors the important role reciprocity can play within the client/clinician relationship. I work with you to help you understand the language of your emotional body, where your body stores emotional tension. Sessions are designed to explore with yoga and mindfulness mediations to help slow things down to assess capacity, and to explore where you feel stuck and overwhelmed- feeling anxious, depressed, fear, rage, insecure, lonely, or lost.

Our stories are unique, and yet we are not alone. The challenge is understanding while some experiences do hurt, YOU ARE STILL OK. Feeling is healing. This is change work. Are you ready?

More Info About My Practice

My practice is 50% self-pay. This means only 50% of my cliental are able to access services through certain insurances. I dedicate 15% of my practice to clients who are living within limited resources- In Maine this translates into Maine care/Medicare, or members of Maine Hour Exchange -HEP.

In most cases self-pay clients pay for services out- of - pocket and care reimbursed by your insurance, and can also be used against your deductible- this can be helpful with high deductible requirements.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am a LCSW, a Somatic Experiencing graduate, and a Kripalu Yoga certified instructor. I specialize working with youth, couscous identity development, and complex trauma such as intergenerational, social oppression, DV, sex trafficking, refugee survivors of war and torture within a multicultural frame work. I have experience working with translators during sessions.

My work addresses the impact culture, race, class, identity , religion and oppression can have on a persons' sense of wellbeing, self worth and self expression. This knowledge is based on my thesis exploring my experience and identity as a trained Dialogues in Diversity Ambassador for the University of Southern Maine, with 10 years experience as a diversity educator/consultant in Maine and NYC.
