Penny believes that the therapeutic process is unique for each person. In order to best facilitate growth, therapy is a collaborative process between the client and therapist that is built upon a foundation of trust and respect.
Penny works from a Somatic Integration model which focuses on embodiment and self-awareness. Her work is strengths based and individualized to meet the needs of each person.
This model works to understand the way a person’s early attachment and neurodevelopment have impacted their nervous system and their adaptive strategies throughout their life and into the present day. This increased attention and awareness can create shifts that will more effectively and efficiently work toward change. She works collaboratively with the client and their own unique nervous system in curious and creative ways to facilitate healing. She works with individuals ages 18 and up. She also offers Therapy Intensives, retreats, groups, and consultations.
Penny received her Masters degree from Johnson State College in 2007 and worked in public schools for more than 13 years before transitioning to private practice. She became licensed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in 2011 and has completed extensive training in trauma, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Bowen Family Systems, Energy Tapping and Somatic Integration Processing.
