My Approach

I have a holistic approach to talk therapy that includes mindfulness practices, body awareness, and craniosacral therapy. 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 transform patterns that no longer serve us. I help clients heal by becoming more embodied in their experiences. I use Somatic Experiencing (Body-Centered Psychotherapy), Craniosacral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My extensive training in yoga and meditation also provide a foundation of wisdom for this work.

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 and addictions.
