My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, certified as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and a NeuroAffective Touch Practitioner . My healing approach is an intergration of psychodynamic psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing and Neuro Affective Touch. With the latest science of nervous system regulation and developmental trauma,my gentle, safe and very attuned connection helps guide you towards your organic truths that ultimately transform your body and mind relationshp. You will release old stored physical and emotional wounds, be able to provide a corrective response and resolution to your trauma, including early infancy trauma. You will learn resiliency skills such as learn how to ground, settle, track sensation and self regulate. This empowering process will restore a sense of self trust, presence, increase a sense of meaningful connection to self and others, and increase a sense of expansion, freedom, and joy in both your body and mind.
