About me

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist who understand that healing happens through the nervous system. I’m certified in Somatic Experiencing and I believe our bodies hold the truth of our experience. Therapy can often be where we discover the language to understand what the body has already known to be true.

I have a deep respect and a profound affinity for my clients. Not everyone is willing to engage in this work, therefore I see my clients as some of the most courageous people I know. I believe when our nervous systems are regulated and we co-regulate with another person with whom we feel safe, neuroplasticity and epigenetics create new pathways. I don’t agree with labeling but rather understanding my clients history and story, and as we make sense of early conditioning, we can learn to exist differently in the world with increased vitality, hope, peace and freedom!
