Somatic Psychotherapy for Addictions and Trauma
With warmth, compassion, and a dose of respectful humor, I work experientially to help you feel better faster. My approach is somatic (body-mind oriented), relational and collaborative. I use mindfulness, curiosity, and strategy to deepen your strengths, increase your resources, and develop your skills to navigate nervous system dysregulation. Our goal will be to create the kind of change you craved enough to come looking for help. I specialize in trauma resolution and healing unhealthy behaviors and/or addictions in the context of individual and partner therapy.
I have 14+ years experience helping people heal. My approach is somatic and based in neuropsychology and attachment concepts, behavioral change and harm reduction. I’m a fully Certified EMDR therapist with EMDRIA, an advanced student of Hakomi Method, a student of nutritional psychology, and a student of Somatic Experiencing.
I have a background in expressive arts and social activism. I bring these elements into the work as appropriate to support your process. I have specialized training with children 0-5, sexual outsiderness, poly/partner/couple therapy, LGBTQ communities, and the Latino communities. Se habla espa~nol.
