“Our pain doesn’t mean we’re broken. Our pain is beckoning us to reignite our soul’s deepest truths, dreams, ideals, and possibilities.”

About Brooke

My desire is to help you greet what is painful in your life as a teacher and discover the ways in which your difficulties offer great lessons that offer you the ability to embody your greatest potential. In this way, our struggles become our most important teachers, offering us precisely what we need to heal, expand our awareness, and face life with greater peace, empowerment, and aliveness.  During our sessions, we will practice a new way of being. Over time and with practice, you’ll begin to carry that experience outside os session. It’s like muscle memory. When you learn tools to excavate and integrate the parts of yourself you left behind, you are capable of facing and becoming more than you can imagine. The more you learn to self-regulate and relate to anxiety, shame, and obligation in new ways, the more you begin to attune your body to a state of peace, resilience, and self-reverence and the more you will carry these states into every part of your life. With over a decade of experience working with individuals, couples, and families as well as through my own personal psychological work, I have developed a deep grasp on how human beings change. Though I have many years of experience and education I bring to bear, I come to this work primarily, not as an ivory tower expert, but as some one who has been in the trenches myself and come to the other side. As we bring our unconscious into the light of conscious awareness we become empowered agents in our own lives, releasing the invisible strings we often feel inexplicably pulled by, that cause us to repeat unhealthy patterns no matter how many times we vow to change them.

How I Work

My work is primarily experiential and somatic, with a focus on working with the unconscious forces that so often hijack our lives without our consent.

Most of my clients already come in the door with an awareness of their problems, so our focus is to reconcile the discrepancies between our unconscious minds that often call the shots behind the scenes so that we can regain agency of our own lives.

As Jung said, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

Trauma is stored in the body and we often don’t realize it we’re carrying it with us until we begin to experience problems and patterns in our lives and behaviors aren’t lining up with who we are.

We work together to reconcile the mind and the body, which are so often cut off from each other, creating confusion, anxiety, and helplessness.

We act out our trauma until we heal it.

Blending practical tools with deep, experiential and somatic work, we integrate what has been split off and empower ourselves to heal.

We learn to come back into contact with the parts of ourselves we’ve left behind, and as we do we become more empowered, awake, and alive.

When we do this work honestly and engage with it fully, it creates shifts in every realm of our lives.

As we gain greater awareness of who we are at our core, we create deep shifts the way we interact with ourselves as well as with others, transforming our relationships along with us.

My primary specializations are anxiety, couples therapy, family therapy, and relationship issues and codependency.

What Makes Me Different

I’m very active and direct as a therapist, providing actionable feedback in real-time. I am open with my observations and bring forth my honest reactions forth with compassion and care, so you never have to guess what I’m thinking.

I strive to approach our work together with brutal honesty and endless compassion, as I do in my own life.

Because I’ve been through the trenches of my own struggles with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues, my expertise comes not only from years of training, but from a continuous confrontation with my own demons and the ever-unfolding lessons that arise in that process.

One of the things that makes me different from other therapists is that I will help you work with your unconscious anxiety and defenses in real time in the session, rapidly recognizing the blind spots and pointing them out to you in the here and now.

While we will address and heal the past stories, trauma, and self-limiting beliefs, we will focus primarily on how the past interfaces with your present difficulties as well as transformative practices that provide powerful relief and healing to transform both the past and present.

Together we will bring to surface the unconscious baggage that is inadvertently controlling your life and help you integrate it with your conscious mind so that you can regain a sense of empowered agency in your life.

Making the connection between what’s happening in session in the present and what you’re struggling with outside of session, we explore unconscious anxiety and defenses within the session and uncover what’s beneath them–what you’ve been running from and protecting yourself from.

As we unearth these deeply buried aspects of the psyche hidden behind our defenses, our wounds begin to heal and we become empowered to trust ourselves and create the lives we want.

I want to help you become free from the feeling that your love for yourself is contingent upon your success, performance, perfection, or external circumstances.

As such, you will come to know that the real, uncensored, struggling, hurt you is loved exactly as you are as you move toward embodying your highest values and living out your truest and most beautiful and vital self.
