About me

I have been in practice as a psychotherapist since 1995. I use Body-oriented Psychotherapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness approaches, energy psychology (including EFT) and ego state work in my therapeutic work with clients to help create lasting healing and change.

In addition to my training as a psychotherapist, I am a graduate of the School for Body-Mind Centering┬« in North Carolina where I became certified as a Somatic Movement Educator in 2010. I also hold two yoga teacher certifications, with advanced training in Chakra Yoga. I have received extensive training over the past twenty years in multiple approaches to helping heal the body, through bodywork, yoga and other somatic/body disciplines. These include Body-mind Centering┬«, Yoga, craniosacral bodywork, Reiki, improvisational dance and theater, and mindfulness meditation.

I am also a trainer and consultant to other therapists who are integrating body-oriented approaches with talk therapy.

I hold an M.S.S.W. degree from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and a B.A. from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I am a registered somatic movement educator (RSME) and a professional member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), the United States Association of Body Psychotherapy (USABP), the Body-Mind Centering® Association (BMCA) and the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA).
