"Long-lasting responses to trauma result not simply from the experience of fear and helplessness but also from how our bodies interpret those experiences." (Rachel Yehuda) Trauma can be thought of as an experience that overwhelms the individual's ability to process the event as it is happening. I work with children, adolescents and adults who have been impacted by trauma, to help bring relief to their lives. By partnering with individuals to help release stress, we can co-create a fresh, new framework for future experiences. Using a combination of therapeutic approaches, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, SMART and other somatic methods, my aim is to help individuals create a more positive framework for their lives and to explore new ways to embody that reality. Working together with the client, my goal is to help individuals find their best method to process trauma and to lay the foundation for new ways of responding to new experiences of the world. I work with children, adolescents and adults, as well as offering family therapy to provide support to children with early childhood trauma. I am adoption-competent.
