My Approach to Helping

Do you feel burned out or stuck in a life that no longer works for you? Does your body feel pained, exhausted, or overly anxious. Do you feel like a phony or that the real you hasn't yet emerged. Well, you've only been this age once. Maybe it's time to give your life an overhaul. Somatic psychology is a cutting-edge approach that works to restore the nervous system to a state of healthy regulation, energy, flow and feeling at home in your body. This provides a foundation of authentic self-esteem that becomes the basis for a big meaningful career and a network of healthy relationships—a life that feels great on the inside.

More Info About My Practice

The core of my work uses Somatic Experiencing, a body-oriented approach grounded in neuroscience and the latest in trauma-informed research. It works to discharge bound survival energy, disrupt tension patterns, and reset and revitalize the nervous system. Somatic therapy pairs extremely well with psychedelic work to accelerate the process of healing. I also integrate Internal Family Systems (IFS), attachment patterns, and a psychodynamic approach into my work.

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

My main areas of specialization are:
- Authentic Career Adaptation
- Attachment Strategies in Relationships
- Chronic Pain and Health Conditions
- Psychedelic Integration
- Owning your Identity (LGBT and other)

Whether you are new to therapy or have spent years talking about your problems without improvement, you may have been using the wrong approach. If you'd like to learn more about my approach and why it can be more effective than talk therapy, visit my website and schedule a free 30-minute consultation. I look forward to meeting you.
