My Approach

Beginning with the questions: “What do you want from your life?” “Are you experiencing a fulfilled life?" "If not, what’s in your way, and how can we work together to get you there?” I help my clients seize what they want from their lives with more health and ease, and with less pain and suffering. My therapy approach is to be a collaborator with you in this process. Psychotherapy should not be disempowering, therapy should be empowering! You are the expert about your life so far; we start with where you are now, and together through small but powerful shifts, we will create the life you want. 

As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and a Transpersonal Psychotherapist, my approach to therapy and trauma healing is very integrated. When fully embraced, the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical parts of us can all work in communion to help us heal. If you are only using your head, that is not enough. If you are only using your feelings, they are also not enough. Life is complex. Human beings are complex. Psychology is complex. In therapy, I help my clients understand and synthesize all parts of themselves into an integrated and holistic vitality. When this happens, you can accomplish the things you have previously only longed for. When the power of who you are meets your passion for what you want, sparks fly and change happens. 

Through psychotherapy and somatic experiencing, I am committed to supporting adults, couples, and teens in their desire to move through their difficulties and create more harmonious and rewarding lives. It is both my calling and my honor to help you. Your life can be more of what you envision—more of what you want! You have the power in your hands to make these changes toward creating a more dynamic and rewarding life. Maybe there’s just some stuff in your way. Let’s get to work!
