[If some of these issues arise in the course of our work, we can address those areas I have training in. However, I am gearing my practice towards the focus areas listed above]

Shining compassionate light on your experience is the first step to bringing healing and change. Once we shine this light, transformation is already in progress.

Allow me to facilitate your process through bringing light, warmth, and non-judgment, along with an eclectic mix of therapeutic tools, including Somatic Experiencing®, to all the parts of you and your experience- the challenging and supportive, each so deserving of attention.

I also offer Holistic Feng Shui as well. Check out my services at: Healing Habitats

Ongoing therapy: A few spots open for the right fit (see Contact page and scroll down to Prospective Client Questionnaire).

Brief therapy [1-10 sessions] open currently: If there is a particular issue or somatic symptom you want support working through, we can engage in a short-term counseling relationship.
