I specialize exclusively with women seeking healing from past upsetting events (traumas) like car or plane accidents, abuse, assaults, loss of a loved one, and medically-related events like surgery and cancer. As a person who has experienced such traumas myself, I personally “get” the resulting pain, disconnection, anxiety, loss of self and physical issues that can arise. Having found healing myself, I'm passionate about helping others find joy, peace, connection to themselves and others, and overall wellness. You can find freedom from the past and unwanted emotional, behavioral and relational patterns!
If you've tried self-help books or talk therapy before without relief, don't lose hope! Trauma is stored in your brain and body in such a way that talking or learning about it doesn't actually change your emotional or physical responses and symptoms, it needs to be addressed through brain and body-based interventions that affect deep change and this is my passion.
I also know that everyone responds to different therapy approaches uniquely and therefore have trained in several approaches so that I can tailor my approach to each individual. The body and brain-based interventions I may utilize with you include: EMDR, Brainspotting, Splankna, Emotional Freedom Technique, and HeartMath. I hope to get to know you and be a part of your healing towards self-acceptance, emotional growth and the release of shame, guilt, anger and fear.
