I'm here to assist and support your healing process. I will teach you to follow the guidance of your body into a state of wholeness using mindfulness and experiential techniques.
I believe that symptoms are not something to go to war with or get rid of, but rather they can be a compass to track where there is emotional pain.
The body is an important element in my therapy because traumas and personal struggles are often captured through holding patterns in the muscles and can be a doorway towards healing and release.
