About My Clients

Do you find yourself perpetually “stuck” in unhealthy relationships? Do you carry tension that never entirely leaves? Chronic stress and unresolved trauma can be emotionally and physically painful, becoming a cunning toxin that seeps into every aspect of your life. It is easily identifiable in familiar ways, like high blood pressure. But another danger is in its hidden damage: loss of self, difficult relationships, and an ever-present feeling that everything could collapse at any minute.

My Background and Approach

Unfortunately, traditional talk therapy primarily focuses on intellectualizing thoughts and feelings. Sometimes that is not enough. A key aspect to healing is in your body. Often clients have ignored what their bodies have been telling them for years. I have an eclectic and innovative approach to therapy that marries talk therapy and body-focused techniques. I integrate my social work education and evidence-based practices with writing, yoga, Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), and meditation. I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. This is because I spent most of my life in my head, ignoring my body’s requests (and demands). I stayed in bad relationships with partners, friends, and employers. I ignored my body and its good intuition and kept trying to intellectualize my way through life until I was so sick that I couldn’t do that anymore. Now I help people shed past hurts, create healthier, more fulfilling lives, and stop disruptive cycles.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My approach is eclectic and holistic and I am able to offer solution points from various angles. My social work training has taught me to keep my eyes open for the strengths and solutions my clients possess. To tap into evidence-based practices to help clients shift thought and behavior patterns that no longer serve them. My body-based training focused my attention on the human body, teaching me how to recognize stress and trauma held in the tissues. I learned to help people begin to notice their bodies and encourage them to find and listen to their voices. I enjoy witnessing shifts and resolutions in individuals and couples. I’m passionate about helping people release old patterns and rewrite their stories. And one by one, I can help a family, group, or community build their resilience and move closer to wholeness and healing.
