“What happens when people open their hearts? They get better.”
― Haruki Murakami
Welcome to Desert Somatics & Psychotherapy. In this practice, I endeavor to create a healing space for people to break free from past traumas that have kept them hostage in order that they may become whole. This sacred process where individuals learn to self-regulate, to confront their histories and difficult experiences, and to re-discover and re-integrate the most authentic, essential parts of themselves is both beautiful and transformational.
People can emerge from their often-painful journeys and can live glorious, meaningful, deeply joyful, loving, and fulfilling lives. I am proof of this, and I want the same for you.
I believe in healing and becoming whole because I have walked my own healing path, which has brought me here to serve you.
As a therapist, a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, an ontological coach, and an attorney, I use my varied, though interconnected, skill sets to support and guide you on your healing path. I come from a person-centered, relational, and experiential healing philosophy. Healing becomes possible when people are given safe, empathetic spaces to share their traumatic and challenging experiences. This is what I hope to bring to you.
“A crisis highlights all of our fault lines. We can pretend that we have nothing to learn, or we can take this opportunity to own the truth and make a better future for ourselves and others.”
