ABOUT

My approach to therapy is compassionate and non-judgmental. I come to my clients believing that we are on a journey together and I feel that comfort and trust between us is the most vital component of the therapeutic process. I have worked extensively with clients who suffer from addiction as well as with those who have experienced sexual, physical and childhood abuse. Even seemingly minor occurrences may be traumatic since trauma is subjective. Struggles with anxiety, phobias, psychosomatic symptoms, depression or low self-esteem require exploration regardless of the cause. Clients often come to me after years of talk therapy that has not alleviated their pain and symptoms. This causes them to feel stuck. If trauma is not properly treated it will continue to affect you, and that's not your fault. I use various mind-body modalities such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprogramming), Somatic Intervention, Guided Imagery, and Integral Somatic Psychology.  Neuroscience research supports my belief that these somatic modalities are often a very effective line of treatment. What does this mean? This means that we work on releasing past trauma from your mind and body by first exploring how the deeper layers of your psyche, body, and nervous system have all combined to cause you to react to present triggers rooted in past trauma. As part of therapy I stress your innate resilience and strength; there are accomplishments and successes you have already achieved but have perhaps not recognized. Give yourself some credit, because recognizing your strengths before exploring your pain will help you work through difficult struggles and fears. I have seen clients become calmer, less reactive and more confident as a result of these therapeutic modalities. They are able to look at their situation, struggles, and pain in a different light and move forward with their lives through a creative, visceral, and even a spiritual approach. I hope we can work together to help you achieve these goals.

Therapist's Experience with Gap Year Students

I have noticed with gap year students that during this time many begin to develop an awareness of emotional needs and struggles they have had, but never were able to address before. Now is a great and vital time to work on self esteem, anxiety, childhood/social struggles to heal!
