Online therapy (telehealth) through a secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform
Are you tired of talking about the past with little change? Somatic trauma therapy can help.
I provide somatic trauma-informed telehealth therapy to individual teens and adults in the State of California who need support to regain control over their lives after adverse life events.
With dedication to helping survivors of sexual violence, and specialized trainings in complex trauma and somatic trauma therapy, I offer a safe space for individuals to begin the healing process and take the first steps toward a more peaceful life.
Therapy with me can feel comforting and inviting, grounding and insightful.
As an inclusive therapist, I serve and respect all clients regardless of gender, sexual identity, race/culture, religion, beliefs, ability, or appearance. I can be your partner in overcoming the effects of your trauma.
Help is here.
My therapeutic style is trauma-informed, neurologically-based, and somatic (body-oriented). I use the following techniques and modalities to treat clients with complex histories or needs:
Structural dissociation model
Cognitive behavioral therapy
Studies show (read here and here) that a somatically-oriented approach is effective not only in reducing symptoms, but improving nervous system regulation, mood, reality-testing, and functioning. Trauma is stored in the deeper regions of the brain and body, where traditional talk therapy does not access. Healing from unresolved trauma requires working with the body.
Specialities & Areas of Clinical Interest
I specialize in trauma therapy, particularly sexual assault, using research-based tools to support clients in processing the pain that comes with trauma.
Unintegrated trauma can present itself in a myriad of ways, manifesting through emotional, cognitive, somatic (body) symptoms, and more. Depression or anxiety can be symptoms of underlying, unresolved trauma.
Additional Areas of Clinical Interest
As part of my treatment of these conditions, I also work with those who suffer from emotional pain due to:
Attachment injury and wounds
BIPOC and Asian-American issues (e.g. microaggression, systemic racism, first-generation pressures)
Adverse childhood experiences (ACES)
Childhood trauma or abuse
- Perfectionism and self-esteem issues
- Mood or affect dysregulation
If you don't see what you or a loved one is struggling with on this list, please know that you can still contact me to see what options I can offer to improve your quality of life. Even if I'm not the best fit, I may be able to refer you to a therapist I know and trust.
