You may be seeking therapy if you get stuck in a pattern of conflict with your partner or spouse that feels repetitive. You may be struggling to find a sense of balance or hope, navigating a life transition, divorce, or feeling afraid to engage in activities you once enjoyed. You may be experiencing self-judgement, low self-worth, or shame. Audra views these struggles as normal responses to past and current wounding, and an opportunity for deeper growth. When you feel seen and heard in therapy, deep healing is possible.
Audra helps her clients find more joy, balance, and fulfillment in their lives with an experiential approach. Using EMDR, EFT for couples, Sandplay, mindfulness, and somatic awareness, we find deeper understanding and support positive change. Her therapeutic style is compassionate, present, engaged, trauma informed, client-centered, and rooted in attachment theory. Her office is a safe place for a diversity of experience and identification. Offering online and in person sessions in Santa Fe, NM.
