I am a Somatic psychotherapist as well as a wife and mother. I have been exploring the relationship between mind and body as a dedicated mindfulness-practitioner and meditator for over a decade.
I am a firm believer that each individual holds great capacity for healing and growth, and that my job is to join with you in uncovering and strengthening those resources that allow each of us to live more fully and authentically.
My work is informed by many somatically-oriented modalities: Hakomi, Richard Schwartz’s Internal Family Systems, as well as the most current research in attachment, neurobiology, and trauma. I am currently engaged in training with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, and have had the privilege of working directly under the tutelage of internationally respected trauma and dissociation expert, Janina Fisher, whose cutting-edge work with other giants in the field supports the role of the body’s wisdom in resolving wounds of the past.
