My Approach to Helping

* During this time of COVID-19 precautions, I have moved my practice to offer all sessions remotely by video or phone.

As humans, we cope with adverse situations using the knowledge and skills available to us at the time. Somatic therapy provides us with the opportunity to slow down, refocus, and listen to the wisdom of the body. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who is passionate about helping you discover the reasons you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or confused. I will provide the professional guidance you need to find healthy, positive ways to improve yourself and your relationships.

My counseling style is collaborative and relational and integrates Hakomi, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, mindfulness meditation, attachment theory, neuroscience, PACT couples therapy and my personal deep love for nature and nature's wisdom. The primary purpose of therapy is to help you develop awareness, learn to live in the present moment and develop your capacity for self-compassion and self-care so you are able to live a meaningful and empowered life. I firmly believe that if you can learn to be kinder and more compassionate with yourself, you will be able to harness your inner strengths and wisdom and nourish every facet of your life and relationships.

More Info About My Practice

Couples or individual therapy can provide a supportive, reliable space to explore and discover a deeper sense of what you want and need in your life and in your relationships. I am a somatic (body-oriented) therapist and I integrate mindfulness, Hakomi and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma into my work. I am also trained in PACT couples therapy that is a body-based approach of experiential couples work. I often turn to the wisdom of the natural world in my work as a resource and help clients find and remember what best supports them in their lives.

I also offer consultation to newer therapists who are establishing their practices and wish for guidance in creating a practice that works for them and feels sustainable.
