My Approach

I have a holistic approach to talk therapy that includes breathing exercises, body awareness, and acupressure. As a licensed professional counselor as well as a licensed massage therapist, I believe that being grounded in the body and the breath is an important way to cope with overwhelming emotions, to unwind trauma, and to break up patterns that no longer serve us. My goal is to help clients heal by becoming more embodied in their experiences. I use Hakomi Body-Centered Psychotherapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My extensive training in Eastern healing modalities, such as yoga and Thai bodywork greatly influence my approach.

My Background

As both a licensed professional counselor and a licensed massage therapist, I value the strength of addressing both the mind and the body in healing. I have worked in the mental health field since 2001 in a variety of settings, including psychiatric, drug treatment, and youth corrections. In 2008, I went to massage therapy school to pursue a career in the healing arts, and I came away with the realization of how powerful the blend of mind and body therapies could be for holistic healing. I have a master of arts in counseling psychology and have specialized training in trauma, substance abuse, and eating disorders.
