Individual Therapy

It can be hard to carve out time to focus on yourself, but individual therapy can give you space, support, and resources to be the best “you” that you can be. 

What issues do you address?

Trauma is not actually about what happened, but how that experience caused an over-activation of energy in your body and brain. If you didn’t have a safe way to process that energy, it can get stuck in your system and stay “reactivatable” later in life. 

I combine traditional talk therapy with somatic and brain-based therapies, so you can heal past trauma and make your brain and nervous system more resilient against future stress.

Anxiety is a complex mental health issue with cognitive, emotional, and physiological aspects. I work with you in a holistic way to become less anxiety-sensitive, challenge your thoughts and beliefs causing anxiety, and soothe yourself when anxiety arises.

Depression may be caused by trauma, unbridled negative self-talk, family-of-origin dysfunction, and/or biochemical imbalances. We’ll work together to help you better understand the source(s) of your depression, and address them holistically.

Burnout is a unique kind of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. If you’re feeling apathetic, cynical, or like things will never get better, you’re probably burned out. 

I’ll teach you powerful tools and practices to help you deal only only with the stressors in your life, but the physiological reactions your body has to those stressors.

If you’re having problems with relationships, individual therapy can help you discover and address what might be happening on your end of things and how you can have more successful relationships in every area of your life. Whether your difficulties are with family, friends, bosses, coworkers, or your intimate partner, it is possible for you to feel more connected and relationally empowered.

Please reach out if you’re looking for help with an issue that you don’t see listed here. These are my specialties, but I’ve been a therapist for almost 20 years and have worked with a lot of people! Let’s meet for a free 15-minute consultation to see if I can support you with what you’re facing.


What is Brainspotting?

There is increasing evidence that trauma is “stored” in the body and that it can alter the way the brain works. Trauma can, for example, have an effect on emotions, memory, and physical health.

Brainspotting is an innovative holistic therapy that activates the body’s innate ability to heal itself from trauma by helping you to reprocess negative events and retrain emotional reactions. 

Brainspotting is primarily used in trauma therapy and for the treatment of PTSD. It has also been shown to assist in injury recovery and help treat physical illness, inattention, stress, and low motivation. Other, seemingly unrelated psychological issues like explosive anger, procrastination, and difficulty concentrating, among others — can be caused by trauma. Therefore, brainspotting might be a particularly effective form of therapy for those individuals who wish to address one or more of these concerns.
