About My Clients

My clients struggle with an array of issues, including: complex trauma or PTSD, anxiety, OCD, depression or interpersonal or relationship difficulties. Some clients come to therapy knowing something isn't right, without being able to put a finger on exactly what it is, and that's ok too!

My Background and Approach

Do you feel a deep pain or ache but can't tell exactly where it comes from? Or maybe you carry the weight of the world and feel like you can't set down the burden? As we go through life, we all experience manifestations of suffering and sometimes even trauma. Trauma makes us feel off-balance. It can affect us at work, in our relationships and even take away our sense of self, leaving us with an ever present sense of heaviness. Anxiety, depression, insomnia, sexual problems and a host of other issues, can all result from unhealed trauma. My approach to therapy is trauma focused and includes EMDR, parts-work and meditation in addition to CBT and other talk therapy. I believe that it is important to focus on the whole self, mind and body and also to individualize therapy as much as possible, because no two people or therapeutic journeys are exactly the same.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we all share the same fundamentals, psychologically and otherwise and have a lot more in common than we sometimes think. We seek to be understood, cared for, and given the opportunity to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. Sometimes though, our ability to do so is hampered by trauma, anxiety or other problems and that's when seeking therapy might be a good idea. When you're suffering from anxiety or trauma, it often feels like there's no hope. Maybe you've tried therapy before and not found the relief you were seeking. While there are never any guarantees of success in therapy, I believe that the capacity for healing lies within each of us and it would be a privilege to help you discover yours.
