Since stress and trauma are part of daily life, I like to think of therapy as helping you develop life skills focusing on your strengths and resources.
It is my firm belief that the most important element of effective therapy is a genuine connection between you and me and together developing a safe container for your work. My approach is invitational, empathic, gentle and supportive.
People who consult with me may suffer from symptoms like anxiety or depression. Their suffering may be connected to a specific event or a crisis (i.e.: loss, accident, illness). Often it is the result of an overwhelmed or dysregulated nervous system.
Nervous system dysregulation can happen after "ordinary" events like car accidents, falls, or a medical intervention, or after "extraordinary" events such as natural disasters. Our nervous systems can become overwhelmed when we live through something that happens too fast or last too long, or perceived as "life-threatening." Even though our nervous systems are similar, our perception of the same event varies based on our history and life experiences.
Somatic Psychotherapy draws from training in, and practice of Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, Art and Play therapy and mindfulness. Combining creative modalities, somatic and mind-body approaches help treat and resolve the fight-flight-freeze/fear cycles in the present moment, move toward resiliency, self- and co-regulation.

More Info About My Practice
My practice is devoted to working with adults, teaching self-regulation, building capacity while focusing on strengths and resources.
One of the key principles that changed my practice from a psychoanalytic perspective to a body-centered approach is that "Trauma is in the nervous system not in the event." (Peter Levine, "Waking the Tiger")
Neurological research suggesting "plasticity" implies that the brain is constantly creating and expanding new neural pathways. It means that all areas of the brain are "plastic" well beyond childhood, and throughout adult life. It supports evidence that with proper therapeutic guidance the human spirit-mind-body system has an inherent capacity to heal itself since the brain changes throughout the lifespan in response to new experiences.
To engage in therapy takes courage. The benefits of allowing yourself to be open to your own experience can be immense. The rewards can range from a feeling of wellbeing, to a greater capacity to relax, a sense of freedom, abundance, creativity and self-expression.
