As a NYS Licensed Mental Health Counselor and veteran Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I integrate and teach the use of touch modalities when appropriate with Somatic Experiencing to help in healing trauma and chronic traumatic stress.
My work is informed by the polyvagal theory, attachment theory and
the latest research on trauma and the body.
Talking and insight are very important for healing trauma and chronic stress -including the body in therapy is a powerful aspect of healing as well.
I bring extensive experience as as a healing bodywork practitioner and Licensed Massage Therapist to my work as a psychotherapist, and as a former professional musician and vocalist, I welcome clients/patients who want to explore and bring more creativity into their lives.
