I can help you:
A licensed psychotherapist and a certified massage practitioner, I hold a holistic perspective on the human condition and on healing. Although all my work is multidimensional, for ethical reasons I maintain two separate practices: One based in Somatic Psychotherapy and one based in Intuitive Healing & Bodywork. Although stemming from different professional frameworks, in both practices I will help you feel the connections within your whole self: body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Within my Somatic Psychotherapy practice, I offer Brainspotting, EMDR* and AF-EMDR.** With these techniques we help you transform stuck patterns in your brain by tapping into your brain's natural momentum towards healing, which can become "stuck" with traumatic experiences or when fundamental developmental, emotional or physical needs are not met. Using Somatic Psychotherapy, Brainspotting, EMDR* or AF-EMDR** together, we work with your whole self, bringing body, mind, emotions and spirit into a more integrated working-relationship to transform traumas of the past or present and help to heal relational wounding.
Working together you'll be able to boost your responses to life's challenges, so you'll feel more at ease, more powerful and enjoy life more.
