It is not until we feel our trauma that it can transform from something that feels like an immediate threat in our bodies to something that happened. This is possible. I am trained in both sensorimotor psychotherapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), which are both somatic approaches to treating trauma. This means that we go beyond the trauma narrative to where it lives in our body to set it free.
Anxiety is unique to each individual. You may feel it in your body or you may feel completely disconnected from your body and be busy in your mind. My first step in treating someone with anxiety is understanding how it is presenting for them and then moving forward from there.
I specialize working with people suffering from binge eating disorder. The first step to freedom from the binge cycle is to ask for help (hey! you are already looking!), say goodbye to restricting and diets, and realign with your authentic self and body.
My Masters in Clinical Mental Health counseling was embedded on a foundation of mindfulness training including 9 intensive meditation retreats, regular meetings with a mindfulness instructor, and meditation and mindfulness weaved throughout class time and ciriculum.

No matter what, becoming a parent is life changing. With that change can come joy and also loss. Loss of identity, loss of freedom, loss of roles within our relationships. I am here to not help you get "back on track" but to find your new track. This is an era is rich of opportunity for personal growth that will impact you and your kiddos for years to come. I would be honored to walk alongside you during this transformational period.
It is in relationship that we encounter the deepest pain. It is also in relationship that experience the deepest growth and development. We can explore the depths and limits of your relationship and understand why you operate the way we do in relationship. My work with relationships is greatly influenced by Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) and I help you and your partner understand how you are missing each other and find some, sometimes simple, ways to return to connection.
