I am passionate about my work with people who have experienced trauma, though I'm not currently accepting new clients.

Trauma therapy is alchemical. It is a process of understanding how we have been impacted by trauma, identifying our resilience, and transforming and transmuting the trauma into sources of strength and wisdom. Trauma therapy is a hero's journey that is not for the faint of heart. Trauma therapy can help take you from surviving to thriving. As cliché as that may sound, I have found it to be a truism.
In trauma therapy, I make frequent use of the wisdom that is contained in our brains and bodies. This wisdom never ceases to amaze me - and the same can be true for you, too, when you learn how to skillfully tap in. I am very interested in Somatic Experiencing and am considering taking the 3 year training to become a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).
Brainspotting (BSP) is such a phenomenal process that it can sometimes feel like magic (I can assure you, it isn't). BSP is informed by the science of how our brains and bodies work, and how they hold and release trauma & stress. This modality can help guide you toward your own inner wisdom and authentic self expression through creating powerful changes in your neruophysiology, which directly informs and influences your psychology.
