A Somtic Nature-Inspired Approach to Trauma Healing & Wellness
Hello! I am a somatic therapist in private practice based along the Delaware River Valley of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I currently work online with adults. I also provide the option to meet outdoors for clients who resonate with a conscious connection to nature as a pathway to healing.
I completed the DARe certificate program in 2022 with Alicen Halquist and had the most wonderful mentorship through Piper Jones, Julie Manwiller and Jeri Innis. Since then, DARe has become a foundation for my personal growth as well as my professional work.
I am also a Somatic Experiencing (SE) Practitioner and continued on to complete a 60hr. certificate in Somatic Attachment Therapy through the Embody Lab with SE faculty, Dr. Maureen Gallagher. Her instruction in Inner Relationship Focusing (IRF), combined with DARe and SE, has helped me deepen into working in the resonant field while using relational and somatically oriented practices. I imagine this will be a life-long study and joy for me.
My formal education incudes a B.A. in Psychology from Rutgers University and a graduate degree (Ed.S) in School Psychology from University of Washington. My introduction to somatic work began with Yoga Therapy, namely Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, almost 20 years ago. I continue to enjoy incorporating trauma-sensitive yoga and yoga therapy in to my work as a source of resource, exploration and embodiment for clients.
