Individuals should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.

It is an act of courage to reach out and come to therapy; it is a sacred process. My goal is to accompany you on a journey towards health and healing. By creating a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment, it gives you the opportunity to connect to feelings, thoughts, and desires in a non-judgmental space. I act as a compassionate witness to your process to help you foster compassion for yourself.

My training as a dance/movement therapist gives me an added tool in the therapeutic process for those who are interested. Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is all about connecting to the wisdom and knowledge of your body. DMT can range from bringing awareness to simple movements and/or body language to using expressive movements. Our minds often create defenses to acknowledging and releasing trapped emotions stored in the body from traumatic life events. Incorporating the body in healing can help you to deepen your connection with your mind, body, and spirit.
