“Don’t apologize for the sorrow, grief, and rage you feel. It is a measure of your humanity and your maturity. It is a measure of your open heart, and as your heart breaks open there will be room for the world to heal. That is what is happening as we see people honestly confronting the sorrows of our time.”Joanna Macy

You are here for transformation. You were shaped by the conditions and yet can reclaim your freedom and vitality. By cultivating awareness and dropping into the wisdom of our bodies, we begin to see that which is causing our suffering. This is the beginning to our freedom.
I am devoted to offering spaces where you can meet your authentic self, unburdened by beliefs, ripe for healing, learning what is in the way, and be supported in your holy transformation. Whether you are wanting to dive deeper into your relational experiences with yourself or others or interested in cultivating practices to support your overall experience of being human, we will use a mindfulness and body-based approach to explore and support your growth and healing.
I use a Somatic and Mindfulness-based transformational approach informed by Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness and Relational Somatic Healing, which together center connection, embodiment, authenticity, safety and inclusivity, ultimately allowing you to remember, reside, and live from your original wholeness.
Sessions are 50 minutes, held via Zoom. At this time, please contact the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy directly if you are interested in working with me.

The soma in somatics means body. Maybe you’ve heard yourself or another say, “I’m always so in my head.” Somatics invites us to bring the whole body into the conversation and acknowledges that it is the body that remembers our history. We must include the body to transform, release, and unburden. In this way, we reclaim our intuition, our gut-feeling, the no’s and yes’s our body is constantly telling us. It is a shift to seeing healing as a recollection of one’s wholeness.
Though trauma has often been used to describe acute or chronic experiences, it can also be a word used to describe the body’s experience of too fast, too much, too soon. Traumatic experiences are ones that the body is unable to fully absorb or digest. Healing trauma does not mean getting rid of experiences that have happened, but rather building the capacity to remember them and experience them in a new way.
In order to truly participate in and witness the transformation accessible through our work together, we will cultivate a relationship to present moment experiences that help unwind habits and tendencies of the past that no longer serve. By doing this, you will find a wider capacity to be intimate with the experiences offered in your life.
