It is natural to experience a range of emotions;
some flooding us thoroughly, and others frozen at our core.

As a Tennessee Licensed Clinical Therapist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I specialize in trauma, and have worked extensively with survivors of sexual assault as well as folks struggling with depression and anxiety.

APPROACHES

Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing resolves trauma symptoms and relieves chronic stress through a potent psychobiological method. By using this approach, we can work to restore inner balance and enhance resilience to stress, resetting the nervous system and increasing your vitality, equanimity, and capacity to actively engage in life.

Jungain Sandplay Therapy

When you enter my office, you will see hundreds of miniature figures lining my shelves. These figures represent the architecture of our universe, including ancient archetypes, real-life people and objects, and fantasy figures. If you can imagine it, I hope you can find it on my shelves.

Mindfulness Practice
