ABOUT

Considering therapy is a courageous choice, it speaks of your willingness to be honest with yourself, and a determination that things be better than they are now. And they can be. 
 
I work with clients to re-discover strengths and develop personal resources.  From a place of self-trust, we build greater awareness about whats working -and what's not- in your life will lead to making choices that truly fit for you.  Trigger experiences can lose their grip, and you will find yourself more present for a life you create, a life worth living.  
 
I believe in the innate healing power that every person carries within. My role as therapist is to support you in harnessing that power, and bringing it fully into your life. Together we will determine the route. I use modalities that I am trained in, and are best suited to the issues at hand -- including somatic psychotherapy, mindfulness, EMDR, family systems, and cognitive / behavioral tools.
 
As a person and as a professional, I respect every person from every walk of life, from any background. I honor you for who you are, where you've come from, and for who you want to become.

Fundamentals of Trauma Recovery, Part 7

Finding meaning, creating purpose, and gaining control is a recipe that results in greater resilience and fuller recovery.


Fundamentals of Trauma Recovery, Part 6

In building muscle, you will literally build your container to bear it all. When your container is fortified, recovery will be easier.


Fundamentals of Trauma Recovery, Part 5

If you feel ashamed in relation to any part of your trauma, you deserve to connect with others and experience the relief that comes with dissipating shame.


Fundamentals of Trauma Recovery, Part 4

Forgive yourself for not having foreseen, protected, or responded more effectively during the trauma.


Fundamentals of Trauma Recovery, Part 3

While extremely distressing, flashbacks are actually memories. Registering what is a memory, and what is happening now, is essential.


Fundamentals of Trauma Recovery, Part 2

You can help your brain register that you survived — you are here — to find more stability and presence in your daily life.


Fundamentals of Trauma Recovery (Part 1)

In trauma recovery, being mindful of your personal gauge will inform you what’s helpful, what is not, what soothes, what activates, what feels good, what is uncomfortable. Listening to your gauge is essential in deciding what’s the best for your recovery.


You and Your Body

Your body is not all of who you are, but it is a constant. You are in relationship with your body always.


Sating the Binge

Bingeing is an issue of physiological needs and emotional nourishment. If we attend to these, we can find peace with food, our bodies, and our minds.


To Be Mindful Or Not To Be

So, I encourage mindfulness.  I invite my clients to be mindful: to attend, without judgment, to the present moment. I invite them to notice themselves, and use that awareness to inform their next move.


In Relationship with Mental Illness

If your spouse suffers from a mental health issue or addiction, there are some concrete steps you can take to improve your life. These are the first pieces of building your relationship.


Earth, Water, Air, and Fire
