Your life is riddled with work, school, long commutes, social media posts, Netflix, too many emails, and the occasional meet up with friends. You feel overwhelmed, bogged down, helpless, and struggle to manage life and your relationships.

You want—no, you DESERVE some relief.  You long for deeper connections.  You want the partner of your dreams. You want purpose, meaningful conversations, a career you are passionate about, and to just be—happy.

Dealing with everyday challenges can wreak havoc on your body in a variety of ways.  Learning how to manage your reactions while bringing awareness to your deepest desires and truths can help you uncover what truly matters to you. 

Whether you are having fears around finding a life partner, struggling with overwhelming anxiety or depression, or need support managing a difficult transition in your life, I can help. 


How somatic psychotherapy can help

Understanding how your patterns and habits formed can be helpful.  While therapy can act as a safe haven to vent and download, it can also be a supportive environment to uncover your most valuable truths and lead you to moments of great clarity.  Somatic psychotherapy can help by bringing a deeper awareness to your patterns and core beliefs that dictate the way you act and react in the world.  If this is important to you, I invite you to call me today to discuss how I can support you.
