I am a licensed marriage and family therapist working with individuals and families to break out of the grip of patterns created by relational and developmental trauma.

With a background in science and appreciation for art, I integrate bodymind trauma-based therapies so clients develop new self understanding of their struggles between physical, emotional, and relational health. I bring leading edge approaches and integrate technology interventions, including the Safe and Sound Protocol, to work at the neurodevelopmental roots that are difficult to change even when you 'want to.'

Some areas of specialty include chronic pain, addictive behaviors, sexual abuse and trauma, birth/medical trauma.
