My practice of somatic psychotherapy is based on the belief that we are all moving towards wellbeing despite the impacts of past events and relationships. This process can benefit from a curious, collaborative, and compassionate guide, who allows your wholeness to grow and unfold. I support clients in finding their wholeness through several therapeutic frameworks including Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems, and EMDR. I use these approaches to support adults, teens, and partners who have experienced, or continue to experience various forms of trauma and all the ways it manifests, including PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

Rather than focusing on just thoughts and emotions, I invite clients to notice and engage how their bodies are contributing to their experience. This is particularly helpful for people who have experienced trauma or formed their identities in harmful relationships. I am influenced by training in contemporary trauma theory, psychodynamic theory, and attachment theory.

Given my own path towards wholeness, I have an expansive interpersonal style that serves me well with clients from diverse backgrounds and experiences. I have a solid, warm, and vibrant presence that can hold a lot of hardship. I am committed to providing a trauma-informed, body-accepting, LGBTQ+ friendly, and social justice-oriented practice.
