Welcome to a safe place for your growth.
This is not just "talk therapy."
As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Drama Therapist and Board Certified Trainer, I utilize the very best tools, training and resources that I've found and studied to help people in private therapy sessions and group workshops.
I specialize in Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples. I offer Diana Foshe's AEDP work for attachment with clients. This combination is excellent for couples and individuals. I utilize my training in Drama Therapy and Expressive Arts when it is helpful.
As the Creator of the Embodied Life Story Process, I also work very closely with people in getting reconnected to their bodies to ground and strengthen their self expression. I’ve developed the “Theater For Shy People” and use a combination of Drama Therapy, storytelling, personal narrative, Hakomi, (AEDP) to provide people with deeper access to themselves.
As co-creator of the healing shame workshops I've developed training for therapists to learn to work with the emotion of shame.
I am always looking for resilience. And I am looking where resilience is blocked. I am looking for something as subtle as the way light shines through a raindrop or does not.
Gershen Kaufman wrote that "Shame is the rupture of the interpersonal bridge" and that feeling listened to is "counter shaming" and can begin to build the bridge back.
I developed my Embodied Life Stories Process to gently provide place for places in a person's life that have been frozen from shame to unfreeze and be gently witnessed in the workshop. Won't you join me on the journey?
