Message to clients

I specialize in treating trauma, attachment, and anxiety using somatic, body-brain techniques for transformative healing. As a brain-wise therapist, I'll help you understand the intricate flow between brain, body, mind, and relationships. My approach is grounded in neuroscience, blending mindfulness and relational therapy to help you process your experiences, move forward, and restore resilience. My goal is to take you from simply surviving to thriving with confidence, ease, and health, empowering you to overcome helplessness and access your innate wholeness. Because every journey is unique, I give individualized care and support.

As a specialist in trauma and anxiety, I use dynamic techniques like Brainspotting (brain-based) and the Safe and Sound Protocol (an evidence-based listening therapy). These approaches help foster creativity and curiosity while deepening the mind-body connection. They're powerful tools in the journey towards feeling whole, offering you new paths to healing.

I'm here to guide you in tapping into your mind-body's natural healing power. I want to help you be curious and understand yourself, fostering self-compassion and resilience along the way. If you're curious about my approach to therapy, reach out and schedule a consult. Let's explore together if my therapeutic style aligns with your journey towards healing.
