I am a somatically informed Relational Psychotherapist who specializes in the treatment of trauma, supporting my clients live a fuller life.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in SARATOGA, CA
I have spent my whole professional career working with PTSD, both from shock traumas such as accidents and sexual assault and from childhood and complex trauma. I have extensive training which includes Somatic Experiencing, NARM, EMDR and NATouch which is a touch-based modality. I come from a strong somatic and relational perspective when working with my clients.
As therapists we all come to this occupation with our own issues. I work from a very non-shaming and accepting place where I want my therapist-client to know that I am aware that healing our own traumas and being able to be fully vulnerable is very important and that what we show to our therapists don't say anything about our capacity as a therapist.
I work from a very relational perspective when it comes to attachment issues, and at the same time support each client's agency understanding that we can function very well outwardly, but inside we are feeling lost and in a lot of pain.
