I have extensive training in a variety of body centered treatment including: Hakomi, Internal Family Systems, Coherence Therapy and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy.

You've taken care of others for a long time. It's time to focus on you.
How we handle and deal with anxiety directly impacts our quality of life. There is no separating mind from body. The pounding chest, pit in your stomach, and shortness of breath are terrifying 'signals' telling you something is wrong. Together we'll get curious about what's driving the anxiety and I'll teach skills that will help you create lasting peace in your life.
Self-esteem refers to how you feel about yourself. It reflects a person’s overall subjective emotional evaluation of their worth. Science has confirmed what we long suspected, mainly, that our thoughts follow our emotions. What we think matters.
