I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner® who provides psychotherapy to adult individuals, couples, families and mother/infant pairs. I utilize psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, EMDR, Somatic Experiencing® and mindfulness techniques. I specialize in the treatment of single event trauma, complex trauma, dissociative disorders, anxiety, depression, mother/infant bonding, relationship issues, sex and sexuality, and personal growth.
My work is informed by an interest in body/mind psychotherapy including over 15 years of practice and training in yoga and mindfulness. I am passionate about Somatic Experiencing due to the impact it has had on my own healing and the effects I have seen with my clients. I also thoroughly enjoy assisting the Somatic Experiencing professional trainings! I am currently a session provider for students at the beginning level.
I care deeply about the work that I do and strongly believe in the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship. I am direct, grounded, compassionate and committed to working with you to find new ways of approaching behaviors that keep you feeling stuck in your relationship to yourself, to others and to your purpose.
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I have pursued further training in attachment, interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, trauma and dissociative disorders. Level Two EMDR training completed through the EMDR Institute.
