It is a privilege to have been able to do this very important work with children, adolescents and adults for more than twenty-five years. I bring a trauma-informed focus to my work, viewing symptoms primarily as the result of psychiatric injuries rather than psychiatric illnesses. All humans have within them all they need to heal and move forward into satisfying and joyful lives. It is my goal to help clients access this more joyful, peaceful stress-free and satisfying way of living.
I use traditional talk-therapy techniques and focus on working with trauma, anxiety & depression by also integrating body-based techniques to assist clients in the resolution of symptoms and in experiencing life with more pleasure, joy and satisfaction. I treat a wide range of client issues - depression, anxiety, PTSD, relationship issues.
In addition to my clinical training, I have completed a three-year long Somatic Experiencing Practitioner Certification at the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute, (SETI) I hope to offer a process that promotes personal freedom, choice, symptom improvement, & an increased sense of well-being and life satisfaction.
