Healing starts here

It is my belief that healing comes from within you and within the context of relationship. Our physiology is designed for connection with others and it is this design that governs our ability to regulate our states of being.  I practice Somatic Experiencing therapy, which focuses on positive psychology and the concept of healing at a biological and nervous system level (reconnecting the mind and body as one). As a healer and a witness to healing, I have the privilege of working with clients with a wide variety of presenting issues. Some of my greatest strengths include an ability to hold space for other’s process and a steadiness of support and therapeutic presence. 

The focus of my work is body issues, trauma, behaviors and restoring social engagement structures. I do this through touch and non-touch bodywork. As the body finds ease and learns to find ease, our nervous systems begin to deactivate and discharge stored bits of held dysregulaiton in the system. Working in manageable amounts is important to me so that systematic regulation has the greatest possibility for long-term success.
