As a therapist, my clients have described me as intuitive, grounded, straight-talking, quirky and kind. I would add introspective, insatiably curious, nerdy, and a deep listener. I enjoy working with and assisting people to realize their full potential.
My interest in somatics and psychology grew from my journey of self-exploration and healing in my own therapy, as well as through my experience working with youths as a teacher. I have over 25 years of personal experience in various forms of somatic work - and 10 years professional work. My empathic disposition to relate and connect with others, my appetite to deepen my somatic practice and learn more about human nature influenced my decision to return back-to-school and study Somatic Psychology.
HOW I WORK:
I am a relational somatic therapist, which means that being real matters and the relationship that develops between us is important. Part of the process of therapy is buidling trust and cultivating an alliance. The work I will assist you with involves a sincere effort to go inside yourself and uncover what you're actually experiencing, and then communicate that. We can discuss your difficulties and identify how you can influence them. When you're sharing a difficult experience, I will encourage you to describe any sensations you are having presently. I will teach you simple somatic-emotional exercises to help us both understand your personal way of handling your experience. We will work together to develop the solution that you're seeking for a more satisfying life.
My approach is rooted with the notion that we have access to self-healing and empowerment by attuning to our bodily experience from within (somatic awareness) to our emotional thought process. I offer interventions and strategies skills to help you trust and honor your 'wise-self'. I will also provide psycho-education to give you information and understand your unique somatic responses.
Telehealth slots are available. Please feel free to reach out and I look forward to connecting with you.
