Individual Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is an opportunity for individuals to address the circumstances and resulting symptoms which impact their mental health and well-being, preventing them from living fully.

I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and trained in EMDR. My work intersects the body, mind and soul as I support those struggling with anxiety disorders, grief, PTSD, and painful relationship patterns.

Holistic Healing

My intention as a psychotherapist is to create space for individuals to face the difficult emotions, self-limiting beliefs, and response patterns which end up constricting their bodies, minds and hearts.

People often begin treatment with me feeling scattered, anxious or collapsed; they leave this deeply healing somatic work feeling more settled, open-hearted, and connected to themselves and others.

Somatic Psychotherapy is based on the idea that what happens to a person is stored in their body as well as their mind. By focusing on both the story and the sensations in the body, somatic psychotherapy offers a more holistic approach to healing. Techniques include developing awareness and inviting curiosity of body sensations, calling upon emotional and imagery-based resources, following impulses for the body to move, releasing emotions, softening tension and constriction, and learning tools to settle the body, heart and mind.

Among other approaches, I offer:

  • Somatic Experiencing ® and Somatic Regulation Touch Skills

  • Deep Listening, Intuition, and Ritual

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
