My Approach to Helping

Initially a practitioner in nonprofits and community behavioral health programs and more recently private practice, I have held clinical positions in the field of wellness, psychiatric social work and mental health in San Francisco, CA since 2000. I have provided services for the whole spectrum of human development, from infants to the elderly, specifically presenting with complex trauma history and chronic to acute life challenges. As a somatic psychotherapist, I utilize relational inquiry to explore the symptoms of Complex PTSD, including fragmentation and illness in body, mind, emotions and spirit. I invite a depth process that leads to the experience of insight, positive shifts, integration and embodied transformation, a letting go of the suffering of negative internal states, dysfunctional and destructive patterns and distorted beliefs caused by early environmental & attachment wounding. I support safe passage on a mindful journey of recovering one's true self, awakening presence, the expansion of agency and life affirming realizations that promote healing and post traumatic growth.

My therapeutic expertise addresses the many life challenges caused by attachment trauma. In sessions I work with my relational presence as a core resource in the exploration and processing of attachment wounding, knowing that it's never too late to repair the heartbreak of relationships that failed to attune to you. The aim is to restore dignity and purpose.

My initial invitation to you is to consider what it is you most want for yourself, what is your greatest desire? This statement becomes your intention for therapy, the tether that supports your vision of change coming to life. This simple invitation calls for deep connection to the birthright of your existence - to be honored and loved just the way you are!

More Info About My Practice

My focus is healing developmental trauma or Complex PTSD. You may present relational challenges in your partnership, at work, in your family, even with yourself. We start with what's happening in present time, explore arising disturbances in mind, body and emotions, gain insight and begin a deep process of repairing experiences of relational harm inspiring a shift towards what's life affirming.

I invite presence, inquiry and curiosity to explore what you want for yourself and why it's not happening. I support you in uncovering the deeper cause of a diagnosis, symptoms and patterns that keep you stuck. This process involves interrupting and slowing down the narrative to explore the expression of the body and emotions which ultimately leads to the insight needed to make lasting, positive change.
