Does this sound familiar?

Feeling tense and uneasy, or having fearful thoughts and worries?

Struggling with patterns and behaviors that feel out of balance?

Feeling like you don’t belong or there’s something wrong with you?

I Can Help.

I exude warmth, compassion, curiosity, hopefulness, and a deep trust in your healing capacity.

I have been given the feedback by clients that they experience me as fully present with them in a way that feels unique.

In our work together, I will guide and accompany you in a gentle process of turning toward yourself with mindful attention, learning about the patterns of your mind and body, and discovering and creating new patterns that are in alignment with your hopes for yourself.

What can you expect?

Release of burdens from the past and healing of emotional wounds and the effects of trauma

Greater sense of balance and nervous system regulation

Increased access to calmness, curiosity, clarity, self-compassion, connectedness, and playfulness

I am informed by and integrate Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) into my therapeutic approach:

According to Internal Family Systems Therapy, we all have an internal system of parts or subpersonalities.  In addition, we all have a core resource, the Self, which is characterized by qualities like calm, curiosity, perspective, and compassion.  In response to frightening or shaming interactions or events in our lives, parts can take on extreme protective roles or carry burdens, such as negative beliefs and intense feeling states.  Although the Self can become obscured, this innate presence in each of us continues to exist and remains undamaged. The goal of IFS is to access the Self to lead and heal the system, releasing the parts from their burdens and extreme roles and restoring balance and vitality.  

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a body-oriented, talk therapy that blends cognitive and emotional approaches, verbal dialogue, and physical interventions.  SP draws on the natural wisdom of the body and the innate drive in all of us to heal, adapt, and develop new capacities.
