As a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) and founder of The Center Method (TCM), my goal is to facilitate psychological, physiological, and social-emotional healing from trauma, anxiety, and depression through an integrated approach. At TCM, we inspire people to gain back control over their emotions, bodies, and lives by advancing and connecting self, families and community.

Our Method

The Center Method (TMC) brings all of the best processes for integrated treatment together in one convenient place that offers professional oversight of your entire wellness plan. Through a collaborative process, we find the best practitioners and modalities for you to develop a program that is tailored to your specific needs. At TMC, we work with children, families, and adults, formulating personal wellness plans that create a more centered, connected, and fully-integrated life for our clients. Our Center Method includes a regimen of psychotherapy, yoga, meditation, acupuncture, massage, and other healing modalities. At TCM, we recognize that each individual and family has different comfort levels, needs, and availability, and we adapt our approach to each unique individual in our welcoming, all-inclusive environment. 

We focus on: 

  • Movement

  • Emotional

  • Visual

  • Auditory

  • Sensation

  • Imagination

  • Energy

Each of the seven core areas is a pilar of our emotional, mental, and physical health, effecting every individual in different ways. 

Fuel Your Center



Looking good jumpstarts and sustains feeling good! We lean on the power of movement to release feel-good neurotransmitters and hormones to support our clients' physical fitness and energy goals with invigorating classes like Trauma-Informed Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Yoga Sculpt, Yoga Barre, Meditation and more.  We also have a registered dietitian on staff to compliment your personalized physical fitness plan.



The roadmap to life is unpredictable, with exciting interchanges and winding intersections.  Our hand-picked, licensed marriage and family therapists, and somatic alignment therapists compassionately expand you and your loved ones through the challenges causing you stress, anxiety, depression, relationship, work or psychosomatic issues in your life.  Men, women, couples, children and families are welcome.



The art of un-doing is equally important to our self-care regimen.  Release stress and tension in your body and skin through a therapeutic and detoxifying massage, acupuncture, reiki, and alternative bodywork modalities.  Each clinician is a valued member of The Center Method's alliance yet customizes your personal experience based on what your body needs.

The evidence-based research is undisputed: A child's ability in handling stress is partially determined by the bonding and soothing experiences they have with their parents in early development. We root our kids, babies and family class sessions in attachment theory principles and through mulit-sensory fun for the whole family with classes like, Mommy/Daddy & Baby Fitness, and Zip Zap Zop Enrichment - social and emotional learning for adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorder, and Pre-Teen Yoga & Mindfulness Group Therapy.

“Sharing the experience of The Center Method (TCM) is a path I had unknowingly been on throughout the course of my life. The combination of psychotherapy, bodywork, body movement/awareness, mindfulness, yoga, and meditation has profoundly shifted my perspective and approach to life. I have found the book, The Body Keeps the Score, by Bessel Van Der Kolk, helpful in the mind/body experience. TCM is more than a ‘treatment’ or ‘fix’; it is a holding environment which allows access to human resiliency and our ability to heal. The integration of vision, touch, hearing, and balance with the emotional and rational brains are fundamental for human connection, attunement, self-confidence, and building healthy relationships. TCM invites you to explore the interplay between thoughts and physical sensations, how to become calm and focused, and how to maintain that calm when life gets complicated.”


“As soon as healing takes place, go out and heal someone else.”
