Message to clients

At the core of what I do, I help you support and soothe your nervous system that can often feel so dysregulated that you feel overwhelmed and stuck in many areas of your life. In therapy, we spend a lot of time tracking and noticing what is happening in the body (including emotions and thoughts) as we talk about and process significant moments in your life.

It may seem a little different than what you are used to at first, but as therapy progresses, you will start to learn a new language to talk about and experience what is happening to you. You will start to feel more at home in their bodies, which for some people is a very scary place.

In essence, you learn how to slow things down on the inside so you have more clarity, understanding and control in your life.

We all have an innate need to feel safe and connected and if we learn how to create conditions for that safety in our bodies and with others, we are able to live more fully present, satisfying lives.

My job is to support you in this process by creating a space for you to learn this new way of connecting to self.

When this happens, true powerful change can occur.
