Profile
“The experience of trauma of any kind is a thief who steals the safety of the present moment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Before becoming a licensed mental health counselor, I enjoyed 20 years as a yoga and meditation instructor, writer, and mother of three sons. When the opportunity arose to weave my experiences “on the mat” with evidence-based practices by entering graduate school, I responded wholeheartedly. I incorporate EMDR into my work with clients to help process past traumatic experiences and manage and reduce anxiety related to life stressors and life changes. I am certified in EMDR and engage in ongoing training in trauma-informed care, attachment-focused somatic interventions, internal family systems, mindfulness-based CBT, and expressive arts interventions. The experience of trauma of any kind is a thief who steals the safety of the present moment. As a client is ready, I believe that it is possible to gain a sense of safety in the midst of strong emotions and turbulent times by identifying and processing past experiences that continue to overwhelm present-day life.
What should someone know about working with you?
EMDR is an experiential, mind-body-spirit therapeutic process. We will engage in a comprehensive intake to gain a thorough understanding of the past events surrounding your current mental and emotional distress and develop a personalized treatment plan based on your identified goals. Throughout the process, I will provide education about EMDR in great detail and will answer any questions that arise.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I feel optimistic and energized by the opportunity to provide somatic psychotherapy and EMDR through telehealth. When my work shifted from in-person to virtual due to the COVID outbreak, I wondered, “How in the world is this going to work?” As it turns out for me and for the clients I’ve worked with, telehealth has been a very good fit. I find there can be unique intimacy and safety in virtual sessions that are held in the comfort of the client’s chosen space.
