Trauma can get in the way of living a more connected life with yourself and others. Slowing down and taking time for yourself can feel impossible. I want to help you feel more at ease and present in your life. Adversity is an opportunity for change. I believe that healing happens in relationship with others. I can help you change old patterns, create better boundaries, and get in touch with your authentic self. The body has everything it needs.
My calling to become a therapist began in 2008 after I underwent life saving open heart surgery. I did not know what was in store for me. My path towards healing began when I learned that I was more than my trauma, more than a diagnosis or any challenges I faced. Since then I have had the honor and privilege of experiencing healing within myself and witnessing it in others. Somatic Experiencing® is a mind/body/spirit approach with a focus on nervous system coherency and positive psychology. SE helped me to return to heart centered living.
