Feeling stressed, trapped, anxious, overwhelmed, burned out? Tired of knowing what to do but feeling stuck? Maybe you are a high achiever and hold yourself to high standards — but something’s gotta give because your body is telling you to slow down and you don’t know how. Maybe you live in an area where you don’t feel safe being open about some part of yourself, so you are seeking support from someone that will accept you. Maybe you’re a therapist who wants therapy and needs to look outside your local area. Maybe you’re an empath so you need a therapist with energy that won’t feel draining to you.
All of these challenges can feel heavy, confining, limiting, and they can hide the light of your true self. I’m here to help you find freedom from the stuff that gets in the way of being who you really are.
Welcome to Embodying Freedom.
I specialize in virtual psychotherapy for anxiety, trauma, chronic illness, and burnout. I also work with other therapists on matters of personal growth, shadow work, and self-care in addition to my regular specialties. I offer a blend of talk therapy and body-oriented practices to help you embody more freedom in your life. I’ve provided virtual psychotherapy to clients throughout Florida since 2015.
Over the years I have specialized in working with trauma and anxiety. More recently I have also started working with chronic illness as I saw a need for providers to support this community, and trauma/anxiety is often a component of the chronic illness journey. I have multiple chronic conditions and understand first-hand the unique challenges that come with being a “Spoonie.”
I am trained in several evidence-based therapies for trauma that can be delivered effectively through telehealth, including EMDR, Prolonged Exposure and Cognitive Processing Therapy. I have worked with both civilians and first responders to assist in healing from traumatic events. I have also worked with individuals whose trauma centers around being a person of color, or of a minority/Other group. I work with both “single incident” PTSD and complex PTSD. I have noticed a lot of people with chronic illnesses have survived difficult experiences, and I believe “our issues are in our tissues,” and resolving the old trauma responses can sometimes help individuals experience their bodies differently.
Sometimes Talking Isn’t Enough
Many therapists offer talk therapy. I do too, but sometimes that’s not enough. Sometimes we need to work with the body’s relationship to the mind. That is where my background in yoga, breath work and EMDR comes into play. For many with anxiety, more talking isn’t ultimately what heals you anyway. What heals for many people is coming home to the body, and learning to find peace with what’s there. I can help you achieve this.
I am delighted to offer an approach to therapy that incorporates the body and the breath, bringing attention into yourself so you can feel and heal.
