My Approach to Helping
I work from an intuitive, integrative, and non-judgmental perspective. My goal is to help support you in your process of healing. I am trained somatically, meaning working from the whole body (body, mind, spirit) approach. Somatic therapy can help reduce anxiety and depression and improve emotional states. Together, we will integrate and utilize resources and tools to help you create more joy in your life.
More Info About My Practice
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, specializing in somatic psychology. Somatic psychology is an integrative, whole body approach to therapy that can help you gain a deeper understanding of your whole self. People often wonder how understanding the body can benefit them in therapy. It is proven fact that trauma lives in our body memory and has been found in our DNA. In order for us to get to the roots of trauma, we have to understand what is happening within the body. When we begin to understand what is happening with the body, we can grasp moments when we are feeling triggered and respond in healthier ways
