My approach to therapy is to create a safe space where you can explore and heal the difficult and painful issues that are showing up in your life. Together we will move beyond problem-solving into releasing the deeply held mistaken beliefs and core unresolved issues behind your symptoms. My body-centered and somatic approach allows me to work directly with your nervous system to address symptoms like anxiety, racing thoughts, and irrational fears as well as feeling stuck. depressed and unavailable or unresponsive to life and relationships. 

I integrate traditional psychotherapy with coaching. mindfulness, EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Breathwork. Somatic work, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems. Integrative Nutritional Counseling, and other evidence-based approaches. We work together to clear that path so that your most authentic, creative. and passionate self can emerge and shine through. I find that getting to the core mistaken beliefs and unexpressed emotions hiding behind our issues and symptoms allows us to go beyond problem-solving into a transformational space where anything is possible. 

I have Masters Degrees in Montessori Education. Clinical and School Counseling. and Transformational Leadership and Coaching. I created Family Engagement programs in over sixty schools that have brought at risk families together while teaching them literacy and relationship skills. I continue to develop emotional intelligence. resiliency, and relationship building programs for school, non-profits. and corporations.
