What is your theraputic approach?
I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression and trauma. My technique is grounded in traditional psychodynamic talk therapy, somatic therapy, bioenergetics, sound therapy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy; which is a body-centered approach that aims to treat the somatic symptoms of unresolved trauma. Clients will be encouraged to set goals and over the course of treatment we will check in to see if you are happy with how treatment is progressing. The client can expect to see a reduction in the symptoms that brought them into therapy. Clients will also learn practical tools and skills they can use every day to improve how they are functioning and to increase their emotional resiliency.

What is a Sound Both?
Sound baths are a simple exercise in deep listening which can lower stress. During a sound bath session with clients, sound therapy practitioners intentionally combine vibrations from the human voice with instruments and objects that resonate such as, but not limited to, crystal quartz singing bowls, metal singing bowls, drums, tuning forks, gongs, shakers, bells and chimes to administer memorable and soothing soundscapes to relax the mind and body. I will be playing for approximately 50 minutes. Simply lie or sit down and allow yourself to be immersed in healing sounds and vibration. During a sound bath, you may experience physical sensations or emotional release. You may journey into a state of deep self-inquiry. You may fall asleep or you may not. No prior experience with meditation is required to benefit.
