As a Somatic Psychotherapist, I specialize in Transforming Touch®. I work with adults with early trauma and attachment issues. During sessions the power of adding touch helps to soothe the nervous system, restoring a sense of safety and trust in the moment. Transforming Touch brings a sense of comfort that can allow for the story to unfold with or without words and a reorganization and a repatterning of the nervous system can occur. Attachment patterns are enabled to shift.
I completed my SEP in 2013. Since then I have studied Touch Skills for Trauma with Kathy Kain and Somatic Resilience and Regulation: Early Trauma with Kathy Kain and Steve Terrell, and Transforming Experience Based Brain I consult with and assist Steve Terrell.
I love to learn. I am licensed in Social Work, Marriage and Family therapy and Massage Therapy. I am a Trainer in Psychodrama, Sociometry, and Group Psychotherapy. I also studied Family Systems, Gestalt Therapy, Inner Child Work, Addiction, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, NonSomatic Extraordinary Vessel therapy (an aspect of Chinese Medicine), CranioSacral therapy and Lifespan Integration. All of these trainings inform my work.
