I offer an eclectic approach to therapy and use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) when appropriate to move past blocks. I offer insight, experience, honesty, and compassion as you reclaim your true self, honoring both the individual nature of the search for self and the universal longing that fuels it.
Talk therapy is very important, but words alone can’t heal psychic wounds. Emotional experiences ‘get under our skin,’ becoming physically embodied, so augmenting talk therapy with body-centered modalities is the key to full healing.
Because of my understanding and belief about treating the “whole self,” I co-founded Numinosity, A Sanctuary for Wellness. Creating my More >>> own community of wellness practitioners allows me to be of the greatest use to my clients.
In addition to my expertise in EMDR, I also have training in Emotion Focused Therapy with Individuals and Couples.
I see psychotherapy as the “elixir of youth.” The more you let go of emotional and psychological baggage the lighter you feel and the more present and in touch you become with yourself and your environment. When you let go of the restricting beliefs and patterns, you can embody aliveness. The feeling of aliveness and joy creates a sense of eternal youth.
I believe when you are committed to growth and change, you can experience a renewed sense of empowerment; a joy and verve in living everyday; a reconnection to your authentic voice; a groundedness and a willingness to take up space and live your life more fully.
