“When healing trauma, it is crucial to give attention to both body and mind; you can't have one without the other.”
- Babette Rothschild, The Body Remembers
— Name, Title
Dedicated to service and living a creative, contemplative, full, heart-led life with ease and flow.
I believe that humans have an innate ability to heal. I draw from modern science and old wisdom traditions to aid the transformation process. I am an EMDR Consultant with EMDRIA. I also incorporate somatic experiencing, internal family systems, and Jungian-based approaches into my work - including oracle cards. A session with me includes desensitizing triggers, dream interpretation, exploring meaningful synchronicity in your everyday life, art, music, and existential questions support you in building curiosity about your life and gain confidence in who you are.
I am a mother. In the parenting journey, I have discovered the opportunity to grow with my daughter. She is my teacher as I watch her unfold into her full personhood. Also, I met my husband at an open mic night, married within a year, and have been together now for almost 15 years. I'm a painter and musician. I love being in the outdoors with my dog.
I am a forever student.
Here's how I can help:
Click the photos for reflective prompts.
Do you keep dating the wrong person? Do you find yourself feeling victimized in relationships?
Be the parent you wish you had. We can identify how your child triggers you to heal your own childhood wounds.
I can support you in visualizing and desensitizing you from your birth fears.
Are you looking back and wondering why you chose this life? The weight of our choices hit us around 40 years and/or 60 years old. What do your choices say about who you were and where you are going?
This therapeutic approach is a form of depth psychology that encourages one to explore their interpretations of mental and emotional processes in order to gain insight that will alleviate tension and conflict. The positive therapeutic relationship is essential to facilitate this process.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a highly effective technique rooted in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I use this technique more broadly to treat any present-day “re-living” or repeating emotions, behaviors, thoughts/beliefs, or somatic experiences.
Mind body spirit EMBODIMENT
I use awareness into body tensions, releases and what thoughts are tied to them in order to gain insight into one's conditioning. Connection or disconnection to our sense of spirit, whatever that is for someone, are all connected. Connection to spirit can be essential to nurture the body and mind. Spirit grounds the work and can expand the central nervous system's zone of tolerance to engage difficult material.
Archetypes are simply characters in the human narrative. We see these characters across culture, language, religion, and geography. Archetypes, hugely investigated by Carl Jung, reveal a collective conscious. By looking to the collective or external, we can gain insight about our internal world.
I blend archetypal meaning with Internal Family Systems (IFS) interventions.

My fee is $225 for an individual session and $300 for a couple. Sessions can range from 45-75 minutes. I also provide a sliding scale. During an initial free consultation we can discuss your needs, concerns and establish the fee. If it turns out that you need a lower fee than I can offer, I will be happy to assist you with a referral.
A number of insurance companies pay "out of network" benefits. I provide you with a monthly statement to submit to your insurance company. Services may be reimbursable in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan.
Please check your coverage by asking your insurance company the following:
Does my plan cover mental health or behavioral health benefits on an out of network basis?
What is my annual deductible and has any part of it been met this year?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
What is the coverage amount reimbursed per therapy session?
Is primary care physician approval required?
I accept check, credit card, or cash at the time of service. A credit card must be on file to begin working together.
I ask that you provide 24 hours notice when canceling a session. You will be charged for a cancellation made less than 24 hours before our appointment time.
