Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
All of your experience from conception to this point in time is stored in the cells of your body. Somatic (body-centered) psychotherapy incorporates the wisdom of the body as well as the thinking mind. Cutting edge somatic psychotherapeutic modalities such as Hakomi, EMDR, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy all tap the latest discoveries in neuro-science to facilitate your natural healing capacity. Each of these methods incorporates present moment mindfulness as part of the process and are effective in working with trauma (big & little) of all kinds (PTSD, relational, developmental, life transitions, etc) as well as other challenging issues. Somatic psychotherapies are also effective at uncovering core beliefs that are keeping you stuck and from living life more joyfully. They are tools to assist you in integrating healthy, positive experiences. I am a somatically-trained psychotherapist certified in Hakomi, EMDR and body-centered life & relationship coaching. I am also trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, addictions, attachment and parenting issues. My practice of psychotherapy is deeply influenced by my yoga and meditation practice of over 25 years. I believe in each being's innate capacity to move towards healing and wholeness.
