I have a holistic approach to talk therapy that includes breathing exercises, body awareness, EMDR, and acupressure. As a licensed professional counselor as well as a licensed massage therapist, I believe that being grounded in the body and the breath is an important way to cope with overwhelming emotions, to unwind trauma, and to break up patterns that no longer serve us. My goal is to help clients heal by becoming more embodied in their experiences. I use Hakomi Body-Centered Psychotherapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My extensive training in Eastern healing modalities, such as yoga, Shiatsu, and Thai bodywork also greatly influence my approach.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have specialized training in trauma and addictions and have had several years of experience working with teens and adults struggling with these issues. I also have specialized training in eating disorders and food/weight issues.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

For me, the purpose of psychotherapy is to help guide people toward their own truth and natural wisdom. The therapeutic relationship provides a container of safety to allow people to peel back the layers of confusion covering their truth. My approach gets people out of the chaotic stories of their mind and into the wisdom of their bodies.
