the body is always present
Individual and group sessions are available in-person and online.
This form of psychotherapy supports the uncovering of what is true within your body. It supports you with reconnecting to your sensations, emotions, and wants. It allows for the possibility of a deeper connection to yourself and others.
Self-trust and self-empowerment is cultivated through this process. This creates a greater understanding and acceptance for what is alive moment-to- moment. Therapy is not about changing you, it is about accepting all your parts with compassion and curiosity. Through increased consciousness, there is more choice, and a deeper connection to what is true. A sense of alignment to your own presence and purpose is unveiled through this healing process.
Please contact me to set up a free initial consultation or if you have questions. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
i look forward to supporting you on your healing journey.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy is a powerful way of healing old traumas held in the nervous system. If you think of the nervous system similar to our digestive system, it supports the digestion of old traumas, so that we can experience our lives in the moment instead of through the lens of past events. Trauma causes a disruption of normal adaptive processing, which results in unprocessed information held in memory networks. Trauma can be events and/or experience of neglect or abuse that undermines an individual's sense of self-worth, safety, ability to assume appropriate responsibility for self or others, or limits one's sense of control or choice.

True connection is cultivated through self-companionship rather than self abandonment. Heal your self-esteem and self-confidence through learning how to confide in yourself. Cultivate the seeds of self trust and self love.

I have had a dream of being a therapist since I was 16 years old. Now, as a middle-aged adult with two grown sons, I am living that dream. I have been involved in the healing arts for almost three decades. My background is in massage therapy, case management for adults with autism/brain injury, yoga therapy, SoulCollage, meditation and astrological counseling.
I received my BA in Contemplative Psychology in 2007 and my MA in Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Psychotherapy in 2019 from Naropa University. I completed the mindfulness-based instructor program in May of 2019. This has provided the skills and education to be able to teach, as adjunct faculty, in the Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Master's program at Naropa University.
Prior to completing my master's degree, I completed Dana Baptiste's one-thousand-hour yoga therapy hybrid program and SoulCollage® Facilitator training. Yoga and art are a major part of my own self-care practices. Both of these healing modalities are integrated into my group work that I offer my clients. Since completing my master's degree, I have continued my path of understanding the deeper layers of trauma and how to support the nervous system with EMDR. This is a powerful tool that supports the transformation of stored traumas Through this process of transformation there is an ability to regulate your nervous system and to experience a freedom that allows for more choice in your life.
Currently and over the last two years, I have been refining my EMDR skills with the support of an ongoing peer supervision group guided by Ariel Swartz. This group specializes in integrating parts work and EMDR. This has allowed a refinement of my skills through a multifaceted lens and has increased the effectiveness of EMDR in my private practice.
I weave together a wide variety of healing modalities in my work with clients. I am passionate about helping humans connect with what is true for them through a deeper awareness and attention to their body. I believe our relationship with others is directly affected by our relationship with ourselves. Re-connecting with ourselves in a deeper way with Maitri (compassion) allows the space for discovery, transformation, and healing. I work with individuals, couples, and groups. I offer a 15-week embodiment group and ongoing embodiment group for women.
I look forward to supporting your healing journey
take beautiful care of yourself.
