No matter what we have experienced in life, we all have an inherent capacity to heal. We can feel connected to ourselves and come home to our bodies. Healing is possible. You can inhabit your own life. Your life is yours.
In my practice, I strive to offer a validating and attuned environment. Here we can dive deep into self-discovery, restoring a connection to all parts of yourself, especially those you’ve had to reject to survive. Using somatic-oriented therapy to foster a deeper connection between mind and body, we will explore the impact of any traumatic experiences on the brain, nervous system, and connection with the self and all relationships. Together we will unpack where beliefs and patterns come from, building an understanding of attachment and the impact of society on our sense of self.
The core of my approach is empowering people to be and love their authentic selves in a world that often shames and rejects anyone who may fall outside the norm. At the center of our work together is feeling safe in the present moment and being able to be here now.
I am trained in body based Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Trauma Focused CBT. I weave these gentle & effective healing modalities together to help clients develop internal resources and see the inherent resilience of the mind & body.
