Sometimes people hit a wall.

Things that used to be satisfying, like career, relationships, or hobbies just don’t light them up the way they did when they were younger.

All the sleepless hours worrying about “why?” just lead to a useless circle.

“I’ve never really recovered from that relationship ending.”

“I shouldn’t still be angry and sad over what happened all those years ago, but I am.”

“Maybe my childhood was more messed up than I realized.”

“What’s wrong with me?”

I help people, aged 30-65, who have “hit the wall” of stuckness or discouragement in energy, attitude, health, relationships, or career. My clients are sick to death of repeating the same unsatisfying and unhealthy patterns but can’t seem to stop or change. They’re feeling stressed, ashamed, shut-down, or depressed and not nearly enough love, joy, optimism, passion, or creativity.

The people I help are no losers…they’ve had some career and relationship satisfaction and other proud accomplishments to their credit. But lately, all that seems distant, elusive, and meaningless. They wonder, “was I ever really happy, or just good at distracting from my despair?”

What do these people have in common?

  • They all suffered neglect, dysfunctional, or abusive experiences, usually in childhood. This caused distress, often called PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
  • They were almost completely unaware that past experiences were interfering with getting what they wanted today.
  • They made big, positive changes in a less than a year through Somatic Experiencing’s proven therapy approach which got to the core of their distress.

Most therapies rely on talk, theories, and good intentions. But that’s not how healing from trauma or childhood abuse happens.

When a person has been emotionally wounded, traumatized, or neglected again and again, they won’t get better from mere ideas and words. The problem is not a psychological one nor a bad attitude.  Their symptoms are a physiological reaction in the nervous system in response to the shock of the trauma (PTSD).

Fear, anger, and self-protective armor is hidden deep in the nervous system and body.

Somatic Experiencing is based on a new scientific understanding of how our nervous system works–how it stores fear, anger, and trauma, and how it can release it.

I offer a “map of the territory” gained not only from professional studies and 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist, but also from my own healing journey from a very challenging childhood.

Using Somatic Experiencing, a body-centered approach, I help clients release grief, anger, shame, and stuckness from their bodies so they can safely rediscover good feelings, instincts, and trust in their own wisdom.

You don’t have to spend years in therapy feeling bad about yourself.
