You may be someone who is grappling with trauma and attachment issues, such as difficulties forming or maintaining healthy relationships, unresolved childhood experiences, or patterns of unhealthy attachment. Maybe you are seeking therapy to understand and heal these attachment wounds, and to develop healthier ways of relating to yourself and others. You are ready to drop the inner chaos, let go of unhealthy situations for good. I understand how hard it can be to face the same patterns over and over and I am here to help you get to the other side so you can have the peace and happiness you have been dreaming of. You don't have to stay stuck in confusion, guilt and fear any longer. Together we can work through this and help you find inner strenght and security.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session we will get to know each other, see what your goals for therapy are and make sure we are a good fit to work together.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I give clients the tools to start empowering themselves to have control over their emotions by learning how to work with their nervous systems and resolve trauma and attachment wounding. I have helped hundreds of people leave unhealthy relationships, overcome challenging emotions and create a life that feels really good for them.

My treatment methods


I utilize attachment-based therapy to support clients by fostering a safe and empathetic environment where we explore your unique attachment patterns and history. Through this approach, we work together to enhance self-awareness, improve communication and emotional regulation, and ultimately build more secure and fulfilling relationships. I aim to empower clients with the tools and insights to navigate life's challenges with greater confidence and emotional well-being.


Drawing upon extensive experience in somatic therapy, I have effectively guided clients in the exploration of the mind-body connection to promote healing and well-being. With a focus on embodiment and mindfulness, I help individuals address trauma, stress, and emotional issues through a holistic approach that integrates the body's wisdom into the therapeutic process. My goal is to empower clients to access their innate capacity for self-regulation and personal transformation, ultimately fostering greater emotional resilience and overall health.


With a wealth of experience in integrative therapy, I specialize in a holistic mind-body-spirit approach that combines various therapeutic modalities to address your unique needs. By integrating cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and humanistic techniques, I offer a comprehensive healing experience that nurtures your emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. My mission is to empower you to achieve profound personal growth, emotional balance, and self-discovery, ensuring you can thrive in all aspects of your life.
