To mindfully awaken is to become conscious in the here and now while incorporating all of our experiences before this moment in time. This practice of living courageously, authentically, with non-judgmental awareness while embracing our worthiness, helps us live a fuller life. Specializing in psychotherapy with adults, my approach is influenced by attachment theory, mindfulness-based therapies, EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, CBT, and The Daring Way(tm) (based on the research of Brené Brown). I use a body-awareness approach to guide clients in accessing their innate capacity towards self-regulation & healing.
I am a Certified Therapist in EMDR, an Advanced-Level Somatic Experiencing Participant & Certified Daring Way(tm) Facilitator. Areas of Interest: Shame Resilience; Coping with Life Transitions; Relational, Developmental & Shock Trauma; PTSD; Enhancing Relationships; Depression and Anxiety; Grief and Loss; Perinatal Mood Disorders; Women's Empowerment; LGBTQ Issues.
Together we can uncover your strengths and enhance your skills, while helping you integrate your past into a life that can be lived more fully, mindfully & authentically. I offer Daring Way(tm) groups to help adults Show Up, Be Seen, Live Brave(tm) in their personal and professional lives.
