My Approach to Helping

As a Somatic Counselor, I work from an understanding of how our thoughts and emotions are necessarily intertwined with our body - internally with brain wiring and externally through behaviors that communicate when words do not. My focus is challenging emotional states and helping adults, individuals 10-17 years, partners, and families resolve what the resulting behaviors may be trying to communicate. Specifically, I address difficulties with anxiety, panic, anger, depression, ptsd, low self-esteem, unforgiveness, fear of death, abandonment, and grief (whether it derives from health challenges, trauma, or interpersonal dynamics). My methods are whole-brained, linking both left-brain using talk therapy and right-brain using expressive therapies (Family Constellation work, Hakomi Experiential Therapy, SandPlay, and Expressive Art), PSYCH-K core belief work to transform negative belief patterns, as well as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), BrainSpotting, and Hypnosis to process traumatic life experiences. Together we choose methods that feel like a fit to meet your circumstance and goals. Ultimately, not only having awareness of patterns, but also a way through creates freedom - freedom to choose what may better serve.
