My Approach to Helping
If you are reading this page you are probably not living the life you want. Major life transitions, anxiety, fear and depression, or a traumatic past will impact the quality of your life. If you are interested in freeing your body and mind, I can help. There is a path towards a happy life, finding a sense of freedom and loving relationships. I am passionate about helping adults, children, teenagers, young adults and families gently work through issues, both physically and emotionally. I support my clients with tools to ground and center yourself and to prepare you for challenging situations.
My Psychodynamic approach includes Somatic Experiencing® and NeuroAffective Touch®. They are gentle, safe and transformative body-mind oriented approaches, restoring a sense of happiness, presence and meaningful connection. Integrating the latest science of nervous system regulation and developmental trauma, I specialize in healing the root cause of depression, anxiety, PTSD and trauma.
In addition to my clinical work I offer at home sessions. I teach parents and caretakers grounding, orienting, joining and settling skills. I offer consultation services to help with transitions such as divorce, adolescence, early adulthood, moving homes, loss of family or pets. I also treat learning and school related issues, including social anxiety.
I am a certified Somatic Experiencing Trauma Therapy Practitioner and completed and assisted in the NeuroAffective Touch foundational training.
