I'm a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), and for over fifteen years I have been helping people learn skills to improve their mental health, and to integrate body, mind and spirit. I’m a firm believer in the body-mind’s innate ability to heal, and, my goal is to guide you in the process of eliciting this healing response.
Although I have training in traditional talk therapy, I have learned that the most effective treatments for trauma, mood disorders, anxiety, and, in general, for getting in touch with wisdom and resilience, involve working with the body (somatic psychotherapy). I’m certified in Havening and Trauma Resiliency Model, and have extensive training in various other modalities that compliment my work. My aim is to help your body (nervous system) become more regulated so you can have more consistent access to the best of you.
Besides working in private practice, I have worked in hospital and clinic settings, which has given me experience working with a variety of mental health conditions, mild to severe.
