Engaging in psychotherapy is a powerful way to invest in yourself and your growth. I offer a complimentary 20-minute video consultation, in which I will ask you some questions to learn what is motivating you to seek help, and you can ask me any questions you have. Together we will decide if it makes sense to move forward and meet in person. All services are provided online via video conferencing.
I graduated with a BS in Accounting, which then led me to get my license as a certified public accountant (CPA). I spent over twenty-five years in exploring the various forms of how to make accounting work for me. Along the way I got certified in massage therapy, certified as a yoga teacher and jumped into Vipassana meditation as a way to find balance in my career. As someone who always used their body as a way to get out of my head, Somatic Psychology was the missing piece to the puzzle. I went on to get my Masters of Arts in Somatic Psychotherapy and was drawn to therapy approaches that focused on healing from trauma. I went on to build my clinical experience and training through the Center for Somatic Psychology and Levis Therapy (culturally attuned EMDR therapy) where I continued to work with adults who have survived some form of trauma in their lives.
