About My Clients

You are an intelligent adult with feelings that undermine your confidence and, at times, overwhelm you and sabotage work and/or relationships. You have tried talk therapy and coping strategies, but you still cannot seem to stop from getting triggered. You are ready to heal from the root and ready to try a body-based/somatic modality, like EMDR, to help the brain to naturally rewire those neural pathways, so you are finally free from those triggers and can live to your full potential.

My Background and Approach

I have been practicing for almost ten years and have a lived experience of trauma and ADHD. In 2022 I became trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and it has transformed my practice, allowing patients to do things they did not think they would ever be able to, reducing panic attacks and nightmares, increasing confidence and the ability to set healthy boundaries in relationships. EMDR, especially paired with attachment and "parts work," has been the most powerful modality I have encountered in my career, bypassing a person's natural psychological defenses and tapping into parts of the brain that allow us to gain the perspective needed to put past experiences in the past, for once and for all, so we can be more present in the moment. My clients have said things like, "I can finally just be with my family, without having to constantly be occupied with one problem or another," "My husband wants to meet you!" "I can finally enjoy the holidays."

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I see all people as valuable and as kin and have a long history of activism, including working against imperialist US policies with Witness for Peace in Nicaragua, working in a domestic violence shelter, in a women's clinic, in a local BLM group, marching for Black Lives, women's rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights and organizing various programs and resources for local immigrant dairy farmworkers, including improving access to healthcare and interpreting as well as workers' compensation insurance coverage. At this point in my life, my contribution to the struggle is helping the activists of today on their healing journeys while balancing my work with enjoyment of dance, outdoors adventures, yoga, and qigong as well as precious time with beloved friends and family.
