About My Clients

Are you anxious or depressed? Stuck worrying about the past or fixated on what might happen in the future? Is it so much that sometimes you find yourself locked in panic, frozen, and feeling like your chest is getting tighter and tighter? Do you find yourself in situations where you just don't feel good enough - shame, unworthiness, some vague sense of not being loved or not belonging? Do you find the same patterns keep repeating themselves & you're ready to get to the bottom of it? I can help!

My Background and Approach

What is somatic psychotherapy? Learn more here: https://www.goodtherapy.org/learn-about-therapy/types/somatic-psychotherapy What is Somatic Experiencing? Learn more here: https://youtu.be/VnBhVYnGvR4 I (virtually/online-only during COVID) work with clients as a licensed psychotherapist for Brooklyn Somatic Therapy in New York, licensed in Massachusetts, and/o as a somatic life, couples and somatic coach across the country and world online through my Maxime Clarity LLC life coaching practice. Many of my clients are millennials seeking support as individual adults, or, as a couple w/ challenges in a relationship. Often, the causes of concern are anxiety & stress, feeling down or stuck, or issues w/ relationships/partnerships, work/professional life, or family conflicts. I also work w/ folks having trauma, complex trauma, & PTSD, helping clients w/ understanding & regulating their nervous systems. I also work w/ BIPOC, LGBTQIAP+TGNC & other folx who have experienced cultural trauma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Mindfulness Meditation Teacher, Indigenous Focusing Oriented Therapy for Complex Trauma practitioner, Focusing Oriented Therapist, Relational Life Therapy Couples & Relationship Therapist, and also trained in Brainspotting 1 & 2. I believe in a body-based, somatic & mindfulness-oriented approached rooted in secure attachment, using the relational field as a safe holding space for us to safely explore what is coming up for you, & what you'd like support with. We may use parts work like Internal Family Systems, narrative or artistic approaches including art or poetry, &/or an attachment-based lens to understand what's at the root of the issue. Through neuroscience & psychoeducation, I'll help you understand why your body may be responding to stress in the way its learned to, & gently introduce alternatives. Working somatically was groundbreaking for me - I myself had spent years in talk therapy w/ few results. Transformation is possible!
