"I believe in a holistic approach to therapy so I integrate traditional talk therapy with experiential therapies that aid in better nervous system regulation, healing, and overall relief of symptoms. Experiential, brain-based healing & somatic therapies can help accelerate change and often reduce time in counseling. I specialize in biologically based healing, which assists in resolving trauma symptoms that are frozen or stuck in the body. I have training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization & reprocessing) and am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP). I interweave these therapies and attachment-based support and repair into all my work with clients, which allows for a rich, gentle, connection-based healing approach. I have been in private practice for over 20 years, and prior to that time I worked in a variety of mental health settings. I see clients via telehealth. ***Please note when scheduling: Please DO NOT schedule yourself until you've talked with me first :) I am working from 2 different calendars, so its very important to email or call/text me 331-223-4170 to set up the Initial Intake -to avoid delays and double booking, as I may already be scheduled with someone from my other practice ... thanks for understanding and being willing to be flexible!
