Adult Stress & Trauma Management, Body and Mind Wellbeing


LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT!

Are you seeking therapy because something is not working in your life or just looking to understand yourself better? 

I am not your conventional "talk" therapist!  I believe that body-oriented and expressive approaches, in conjunction with standard therapy actually works better to reach goals and solve problems - not just muck around in them.  

SPECIALTIES:
My areas of specialty are medical and early developmental trauma, reclaiming yourself after leaving an abusive relationship, and your relationship to your body and food.   


HOW I WORK:
  • Holistic - We will consider all aspects of you that seem important or that show up in a given session
  • Strength based - I believe that "what you put your attention on grows stronger".  We will give attention to what does work as we explore other goals.
  • Goal oriented - How can you get "there" if you don't know where you want to go? 
  • Collaborative - A free exchange of ideas and observations can result in important insights.
  • Non-violent - There are no pre-conceived plans or approaches - I tailor our work based on the here-and-now needs that you have, remembering that it is your goals and experience that we are exploring!
  • Compassionate - We all suffer from enough judgment and doubt as it is - my goal is to provide a safe environment in which you feel accepted and free to explore.
  • Somatic - we may have deep conversation, but there are times when connecting to the internal world of your physiology  can be most revealing.  


MY EXPERIENCE:

I draw understanding from the gifts and lessons I have learned as a mother, lover, artist, friend and business owner, woman, sister, wife and daughter.

My experience, training, and skill in a number of therapeutic modalities gives our work both flexibility and depth. 
I hold a MA in Counseling Psychology from JFK University’s School of Holistic Studies, am a certified practitioner and assistant of Somatic Experiencing®,  and am certified by the Institute of Eating Psychology©  as a Mind-Body Nutrition Coach. I am also a graduate of The Hakomi Institute of California.  




I believe you have everything you need already - I look forward to helping you uncover it!
