Working with trauma

In individual and couples' therapy contexts I am equipped to attend to the impact of early (or more recent) traumatic experience on clients' present function. My work is framed by current thinking in the field of human development, and is informed by attachment theory, neuroscience, trauma treatment research, and contemporary psychoanalytic thinking.  

My past experience as a yoga teacher and as a longtime yoga practitioner has proven valuable in the realm of trauma treatment. I incorporate mind/body, somatic attunement and sensory integration techniques into our therapeutic conversation, whenever such approaches are indicated, and welcomed by the client.

"If we begin to get in touch with whatever we feel with some kind of kindness, our protective shells will melt, and we'll find that more areas of our lives are workable.  As we learn to have compassion for ourselves, the circle of compassion for others--what and whom we can work with, and how--becomes wider."
