My Approach to Helping

I strive to support individuals in building and strengthening self-awareness and self-compassion. From this place we can feel more connected to possibility. Struggles and trauma can leave us disconnected and isolated. I offer a safe therapeutic space that fosters learning, healing, growth from the past in the present. Even if you have repeated similar patterns for most of your life,these strategies can be shifted into new and adaptive ways of being and connection. I integrate a variety of holistic therapeutic approaches: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR certified), SensoriMotor Psychotherapy Somatic-oriented, mindfulness, ego state, attachment theory, CBT, energy psychology ,creative therapy, harmonic and shamanic sound healing, Emotion-Focused. My approach is intended to support a safe space for the healing and integration of mind, body, heart, spirit and relationships from trauma. So you may walk forward in the presence and connection with who you truly are.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work with adults: individuals and groups. My focus Is in healing and recovery of trauma and attachment wounding. I support the interconnection of the mind-body-Spirit. From a mindful, curious and compassionate place, we can learn to trust and listen to the widsom and healing capacity of the body. From this place we remember our core essence and live it in life. Experience and focus of service: Trauma and attachment, Complex PTSD, sexual abuse, Acute Trauma, trauma/attachment wounds from childhood, sexual abuse, perinatal trauma, LGBTQ affirming, transgenerational trauma recovery psychedelic harm reduction/integration for non-ordinary states of consciousness, parent-child conflict, anxiety, stress management, depression, emotional dys-regulation, post-partum trauma, grief/loss,transitions, relationships, cancer survivors, military trauma, veterans, reiki energy healing, spirituality.

Techniques I Use


  • EMDR External link

    EMDR therapy takes you to a deep subconscious place of healing when talking and awareness has not been enough to make the changes you need. I am level I/II trained and currently seeking certification; Continued training in Trauma & Dissociation; Early Attachment Wounds/pre-verbal trauma; I have witnessed people experience profound and lasting changes from trauma and stuck patterns using EMDR.

  • Sensorimotor External link

    The body holds within it wisdom and possibility. Sensori-motor weaves mindfulness based practices with a body-centered approach which facilitates the natural healing and integration of the body-mind-heart. It is a therapeutic way to deeper connect and empower the body-mind to resolve and renew the unhelpful patterned responses/defenses stored from trauma and other experiences over time.
