- Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Master Arts, Counseling Psychology
You have survived beautifully. You have faced trauma and kept going. You usually take care of things yourself, but recently you have felt stuck or in need of a little more support. Perhaps family or friends have mentioned that you should consider getting help. It would be nice to find someone who not only has been trained to work with trauma and anxiety but who is also a supportive teammate. You would like a therapist who helps you identify and break free from challenging personal and interpersonal patterns so you can create more of what you want in your life.
I help you build a strong, flexible container to process forgiveness, grow self-awareness, and redirect stagnant energy to better suit your desired direction in life. By using gentle spirituality, affirming, nonjudgmental witnessing, and mindfulness, we can work on:
• Guided self-reflection
• Easing shame
• Modeling a safe relationship
• Unconditional regard
• Working with memories of trauma
• Intergenerational trauma
• Misattunement or not being understood in your earlier years
• Anxiety that has taken over sleep or other parts of your life
• Attachment trauma in couples
• Interfaith blending in couples and families
• Family loss, repair, and strengthening
• Postpartum depression
I am authentic in my work and life. Along those lines, I experienced trauma at different points in my life, came up with some beautiful coping strategies, and found safe, holding people who helped me thrive. There is nothing more interesting to me than how our brains and bodies work to protect us from or process trauma in all its forms. Neurobiology and biopsychology are great interests of mine. As a mother of three, formerly a single parent and now a member of a blended, interfaith family, I have found fulfillment in supporting individuals, couples, and families on their journeys. Postpartum depression, new arrivals, family losses, and the myriad other stresses and life events that come with single parenting, co-parenting, and family growth and change are among my specialties.
I joined Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center in the spring of 2017, after completing my graduate studies at John F. Kennedy University (JFKU). At JFKU, I specialized in transpersonal and somatic studies. My previous experience and training combined with an interest in trauma work led me to the somatic specialization. I have a strong background in massage therapy and energy work as well as in childcare (for children with and without special needs), adult, and elderly care. My therapy practice includes work with all ages on a wide variety of embodied needs and concerns, including trauma, anxiety, grief, and family and relationship issues.
My approach is warm, interactive, and collaborative. I attune to your mind, body, and spiritual needs. In therapy and in life, the practices of mindfulness, self-forgiveness, and compassion are powerful resources for healing. I establish strong working partnerships with my clients and believe that the relationship we develop can be an important part of the therapeutic process. To do this work, I draw upon the authentic client-therapist relationship to support you in building more fulfilling connections with yourself and others. For clients who want to go deeper or go outside the box, I utilize ecotherapy, authentic movement, and energetic and physical experiences such as setting boundaries and understanding hyper- or hypoactivity.
I am genuinely curious and open to exploring and supporting your needs. Trained in somatic therapy with a special emphasis on trauma, I believe in using the therapeutic relationship to help you have more fulfilling relationships. Some of the tools I work with include Ho'oponopono, Hakomi, meditation, sandtray and other expressive arts, and movement.
I love seeing the courageous ways you have survived and celebrating what makes you who you are now. As I bear witness to your full self, you will be able to expand the boundaries of who you are to include new, beautiful openings to even more of yourself and to the world around you as you thrive in new ways.
