My Ideal Client

Do you wonder why you can't relax and make peace with yourself and/or others? Do you know that things from the past continue to haunt you and create turmoil in your life? Do you dredge up old stories and replay them over and over wondering what went wrong? Do you fight with yourself and wage inner war~ battling it out without conclusion? Do you question what is blocking you from vitality and playfulness? Do you seek meaning and fulfillment beyond the life that you are living? Let healing begin.

My Approach to Helping

I would like to know the world in which you live. It is only through careful tracking that we can find our way to what is ailing you. I will join you in this journey. It must be safe, accepting, warm, curious and natural. I am not the expert with the wand (unless doing EMDR;) but rather a fellow human finding meaning, freedom and truth in this lifetime. I have lived, trained, read, meditated, and contemplated throughout my life, education and career to be a better and more skillful vessel for healing. This is both my interest and passion. Mental health issues are a natural response to trauma and a toxic culture and I understand. It is OK. We will find our way through and you are not alone.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a Peace Corps volunteer decades ago, I found my passion listening and learning from others. I saw first hand that much of what we know and believe comes from our unique families, cultures and environment. I then began a career in social services drawn to unfair and painful aspects of our society. My work was very strength-based and problem focused. Always growing my capacity to listen with my heart, I began to develop a passion for growing the spaceI for truth and pain. Amazingly, I found that this led to healing all on its own! I shifted my focus from crisis response to curiosity, safety and compassion. I have worked with people of all identities and celebrate diversity! I even had the wonderful opportunity to provide mental health therapy to expats in HCMC Vietnam for five years. I listen with my mind, body, and spirit and know that if I track my clients closely, they will lead us towards their wholeness. As a student of many modalities I will never stop working to hone my craft.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Attachment Theory External link

    From family work (family crisis and adoptions) to the most vulnerable peoples (Emergency Department social work), I know that our attachment templates are primary to the way that we experience ourselves, our relationships, and our world. I keep this awareness close and utilize attachment theory in my work, always.

  • EMDR External link

    EMDR trained, Im a believer. Let me offer this intervention to you. Let us soften your trauma response and heal your nervous system.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    As a student of Hakomi I am focused on the most gentle, effective, and powerful tools for self awareness and choice. I believe that we can attune to our bodies, minds, emotions, moods, memories, beliefs, and spirit to move towards greater inner peace and joy. Carefully attuned body awareness is an effective tool in driving this process.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Personal Growth External link

    Hakomi provides an incredible path towards self awareness. Ego state work also allows for strengths and assets to be identified and built upon. Both of these tools together create incredible opportunities for empowerment and growth.

  • Aging Concerns External link

    As a mid-life woman and therapist I am passionate about providing support for others at this phase of life. It is a rich and challenging time! Grief, loss, physical challenges, pain, changing roles, relationships, personal meaning, and certain realization of time; I would like to support you wherever you find yourself. Let us connect and assure that presence and choice are at the forefront of your life.

  • Adoption Issues External link

    Eight years experience in preparing, placing, and supporting adoptive children and families.

  • Self-Harming External link

    Working in Level 1 Trauma Emergency Dept I have significant experience working to assess and support individuals in acute pain and crisis. I know this serves a purpose and I want to know more.

  • PTSD External link

    I have worked with individuals with developmental and acute trauma and use EMDR and trauma informed care to provide somatic and emotional healing from trauma response.
