As both a licensed professional counselor and a licensed massage therapist, I deeply value the strength of addressing the mind, body, and spirit in healing.  I offer individual counseling sessions to address childhood trauma, PTSD, stress, anxiety, depression, and addictions.  My holistic approach to mental health uses somatic (body-centered) awareness and mindfulness as a way to enhance traditional talk therapy, and it includes bodywork, EMDR, yoga philosophy, and guided meditation.  

I have worked in the mental health field since 2001 in a variety of settings, including psychiatric, drug treatment, and youth corrections.  After attending massage therapy school to pursue a career in the healing arts, I realized how powerful both mind and body therapies are for holistic healing. I have training in somatic psychotherapy and craniosacral therapy, as well as an extensive yoga and meditation practice which greatly influences my work.  I look forward to accompanying you on a journey of transformation and healing.
