About Sunyata’s Practice:

I am a global trauma clinician trained in numerous treatment modalities to provide holistic care to my clients. I specialize in helping children and adolescents overcome the debilitating impact of trauma and manage symptoms of anxiety and depression. Using several trauma-focused mind/body techniques (EMDR, TF-CBT, MBCT, Yoga, ACT), I will help you get in touch with the present moment. Until we are in the present moment it is impossible to find balance and make intentional choices.

Young people today are bombarded with changes, pressures, and options. In the best of times people find ways to enjoy, manage, and grow from these challenging situations. As life becomes messier and messier, it can be overly taxing to people's well-being to try and navigate life on our own. This is when a therapist can be helpful. Therapy can help you learn new skills, see your situation from a different perspective, develop your strengths, build community, and give you space to process past trauma(s) that may be hindering your innate ability to heal.
