    Director of Trauma Services, Psychotherapist & Registered Yoga Teacher

    This morning you woke up and said “I’m tired of feeling this way”.  You find yourself spending most of your time in your head convincing yourself of why you’re not enough or comparing yourself to everyone else around you.  Somewhere along the line, you started to believe you weren’t good enough, worthy enough, ______ enough.  Wondering where you learned to talk to yourself this way?  To treat yourself in this way?  Where did this start?  Continuing to worry may get in the way of your daily life, stopping you from having close or meaningful friendships, relationships or connecting with your true self.

    Your story is important.  There’s a story that tells it all, where these beliefs came from, and it deserves to be told.  I’m here to help you reclaim the pen to your story and to rewrite the way you speak to and treat yourself.  I’m here to walk you through a way forward and get back in your life.

    As a human being, I know the difficulty and pain that life can throw at us. I also know that in the midst of those difficulties how easy it is to surrender to the core belief of “I’m just not enough” or “I’ll never be.” Reclaiming my power and changing the way I talked to myself, changed the way I began to treat and care for my entire mind, body, and soul.  I’m passionate about working with people to heal the relationship to their whole self.  To rewrite the stories we tell our minds and our bodies.  I became a therapist because part of my story is helping others get the most out of their human experience; I know it’s possible.  We all have areas of life where we need support to move through the blocks and improve the relationship with ourself, our body, and our mind.  You don’t have to do this one alone.

    Let’s walk together – Make an Appointment here or see the groups I currently leads here.

    My roots and interest in yoga philosophy and the mind/body connection led me to purse my MA in Counseling Psychology. Upon receiving my license as a professional counselor, I specialized in working with mood and trauma disorders in a residential treatment center for women. In addition to working with anxiety, depression, and trauma, I also see clients who are struggling with relationship issues, body image, eating disorders, grief and loss, and life transitions. My therapeutic approaches range from EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), creative expression, and mindfulness. I am currently healing trauma through EMDR with my clients and am overseeing the training of 10 EMDR clinicians. I am also a firm believer in the healing power of nature and physical movement and offer outdoor / walking sessions in the warmer months. During the summer months I also host Wind Down Wednesday: Outdoor Trauma-Informed Therapeutic Yoga in the Lurie Garden across the street from our office.
