I am the author of Mindful Somatic Awareness: A Body-Based Approach to Moving Beyond Fear and Worry. My book provides gentle guidance for those looking to transcend their anxiety and awaken to their true nature through mind-body discipline. The pages of my book offer a basic, yet detailed understanding of the unique relationship between the mind and body and demonstrates how highly charged emotional experiences of fear and overwhelm remain wired in your nervous system and point to the origins of your chronic anxiety and worry.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. Additionally, I am trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. In my practice, I work with those who bear the burden of early childhood trauma and it’s impact on their ability to form healthy, meaningful attachments and to experience safety in closeness and intimacy. My work also includes helping those with persistent anxiety and depression, those suffering from the emotional pain of loss and grief, and those fighting a battle with addiction and disordered eating behavior.
Along with my private practice, I also offer integration services in person and online for those who are currently working with empathogens and sacred plant medicines or for those who are contemplating this particular path. As part of these services we will explore preparation for ceremony including intention setting, educational resources, supportive practices for pre- and post- ceremony, assistance in integrating insights and awarenesses, and developing practices to continue one’s expansion, growth, and healing path beyond ceremony.
