I utilize EMDR, internal family systems, mindfulness, somatic approaches, and yoga to assist you in resourcing and balancing the nervous system so you can feel grounded, calm and capable, as well as to help you heal from stress and trauma. I specialize in stress, anxiety, trauma, and creating self care routines.
Current neuroscience research indicates that EMDR is the best treatment for treating trauma and PTSD.
Through the use of expressive arts, dream interpretation, and shamanic journeying, I assist clients in understanding the metaphors and symbols present for them. This way of working assists individuals in connecting their unconscious thoughts, desires, and blocks into their conscious mind so they gain a better understanding of who they are. It also assists them in experiencing the numinous which leads to a deeper connection to Self and others.
I am trained in mind/body therapy, yoga, internal family systems, and mindfulness practices which neuroscience research has shown is effective in treating depression, trauma, and anxiety.
Many of us have experienced difficulty things and/or have current life stressors. Anxiety symptoms are the bodies natural defense mechanism. I work with individuals to help them understand what their body is communicating and how to develop coping skills to decrease the symptoms of anxiety. Neuroscience has shown that mindfulness and somatic practices are excellent ways of treating anxiety.

It can be challenging living with chronic pain or illness. There is hope in the current neuroscience research that show that somatic practices like yoga, breath work, and meditation can decrease pain receptor activation, as well as shift your relationship with your pain so it is more manageable.
