I am a California Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (MFT) practicing in Sonoma County for the past 20 years.
Currently, I specialize in using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help adults move through traumatic experiences, either from childhood or current time, toward integration and healing. I also work in many other ways to help you resolve your issues.
I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to establish a safe environment where we can explore together the best path of healing for you. The relationship between us is primary and I work very hard to create a deeply attuned resonance so that your inherent wisdom can lead us in the right direction for you.
Resources, both internal and external, play a big part in the therapeutic process. In my experience, people often possess much of what they already need, but may have become disconnected from or numbed to these resourced parts of themselves. It is possible to reconnect to these powerful places within. In the event that essential resources are missing, we will work to develop and strengthen appropriate resources so that you can feel more empowered in your life.
During our work together, we may use a combination of talk therapy, tracking the body mindfully, experiential somatic processing, parts work, resource building, and EMDR/tapping.
As human beings, we have an incredible ability to heal the parts of ourselves that have been hurt and wounded. Every person has an inherent right to live life fully. It would be my privilege to accompany you on the journey.
