Problems Treated:  Psychological trauma; Affect regulation, including anxiety/stress and depression; Life changes, such as gender identity issues and career difficulties; Couples problems.

Primary Theoretical Orientation: Experiential/Somatic psychotherapy approaches. My psychotherapy approach has a strong emphasis on mindfulness-based practices, including somatic psychotherapies. I have an extensive training in somatic psychotherapy: I am certified as a Focusing Trainer and I am also a certified Sensorimotor Psychotherapist. With this skill set, I help my clients become more aware of how old patterns get in the way of them making their life goals happen. These experiential approaches help clients tap deeper brain structures, a process which effectively facilitates changes in old, stuck patterns.  I incorporate other skill sets, such as from cognitive behavioral psychotherapy.

Specialty Areas: My specialty is in the treatment of psychological trauma and managing emotions.
