  • Bringing twenty-five years as a holistic practitioner to my Somatic Psychotherapy & Mindful Bodywork practices, I help clients ease stress, anxiety, depression, attachment difficulties, trauma, & more. I offer genuine engagement, a warm presence, a mind-body-spirit perspective, plus tools/resources to use at home. I support clients to be more embodied as they explore life’s challenges, grow their strengths, and heal. I’m an ally to those struggling with race, class and gender inequities and to LGBTQ & poly clients. I practice Somatic Attachment work (influenced by Bill Bowen and Karen Rachels), Attachment Focused EMDR (Laurel Parnell), and David Grand's Brainspotting.
