About Me

EMDR, IFS, and Somatic Experiencing are utilized in my work as a trauma therapist as a means to restore a sense of calm and centered connection within the brain and body. You already have a wellspring of healing energy within you; one of my main goals is to help you reconnect with it. I believe that with support, guided exercises, skill teaching, facing hard truths, and with compassionate practice, we can stretch the borders of our current consciousness and land deeper in the seat of our higher self.
