My Ideal Client

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.

My Approach to Helping

I will create an environment that enables you to feel safe, so that you may develop trust and can feel heard and seen. I understand the current neuroscience research that discusses the impact that attachment trauma, childhood trauma, and life stressors can have on the body and mind, while also understanding this from a parts perspective. I will help you develop self-awareness so you can bring unconscious beliefs and patterns into consciousness and shift them. This will help you develop insights into all parts of yourself, as well as help you develop somatic and mindfulness tools to live in the present moment more fully. Once you deepen your relationship with your inner world, you will be able to heal the core beliefs that no longer serve you and heal parts that are burdened by pain so you can live more authentically.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I received my Masters in Counseling from Pacifica Graduate Institute, where I studied Jungian Psychology/Depth Psychology. I am licensed with the Oregon State Board of Marriage and Family Therapists. I am trained in EMDR, mind/body therapy, somatic and mindfulness practices, Internal Family Systems informed, Yoga Therapy, and trauma treatments.

Techniques I Use


  • EMDR External link

    Current neuroscience research indicates that EMDR is the best treatment for treating trauma and PTSD.

  • Depth Therapy External link

    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.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    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.

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    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.

  • PTSD External link

    I am trained in EMDR, which research has shown is the best treatment for treating trauma and PTSD. Neuroscience also shows that somatic and mindfulness practices can help decrease anxiety symptoms associated with PTSD

  • Chronic Pain or Illness External link

    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.
