I offer a free phone consultation sessions to explore the idea of working together. With trauma-based Somatic Experiencing and longer-term, relationally-oriented Psychotherapy I support individuals and couples healing from core issues; relational, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I view difficult experience as a chance to grow, to deepen awareness, and increase self-acceptance.
If you are struggling with stress or anxiety, staying in unhealthy relationships, using alcohol or drugs to numb depression, I can help. Through solution oriented, body-psychotherapy I listen carefully to your needs, using mindfulness for stress management, as well as anchoring a sense of safety and ease.
My main therapeutic resource is Somatic Experiencing. This body-based approach draws upon the subtle, organic intelligence of the body to identify already existing internal strengths, and build upon them to create the greatest container for personal growth.
