I believe strongly that everyone is capable of overcoming their challenges and achieving emotional wellness. The best way to do this is to address each person as a whole being - with a mind, body, and spirit. My holistic psychotherapy practice uses techniques that embrace this wholeness, including talk therapy, body-based work such as therapeutic yoga, and spiritual practices.

The act of being truly heard is profoundly healing, so as a therapist I listen deeply, actively, and non-judgmentally and help you to hear yourself in the same way. Together we will work through obstacles and challenges that have held you back, and bring you to a fuller expression of your true self.

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

I am particularly moved by helping those who struggle with anxiety and anxiety related disorders. I am also passionate about helping survivors of trauma, particularly the adult survivors of childhood trauma. Both anxiety and trauma can be helped by learning skills to better cope with symptoms that have taken over your life. This shrinks the anxiety or trauma so that you are able to live the rest of your life more fully. Embodied therapies (like yoga therapy or body-awareness) are particularly helpful here, because so many of our emotions are stuck in the body making your body and it's reactions a frightening place. Becoming comfortable in your body again, and releasing the emotions held there, is profoundly healing.

Depression and questions about identity and purpose in life are also topics close to my heart. The holistic work that I do is particularly well suited to these concerns because spiritual practices, like mindfulness and meditation, can bring you deeper insight into yourself and greater joy in the world around you.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Rather than being "weak or flawed" going to therapy is an incredible act of courage. Absolutely everyone struggles with something at some point in their lives, but to have the courage to look your challenges in the face and to engage them fully by asking for help is the ultimate in bravery. You have said to yourself, "I know this won't be easy, but I will be better for doing it" and that takes determination and strength.
