With over three decades of professional experience, much of which includes advocacy for patients in healthcare settings, Jodi has cultivated the art of empathy, active listening, and providing unwavering support to those in need. Her rich tapestry of life experiences has driven her to embark on her second career as a therapist, and she is enthusiastic about extending her skills to aid others in their healing journeys.

What truly distinguishes her practice is her passion for mindfulness and sensorimotor psychotherapy. As a certified mindfulness facilitator, Jodi guides clients in rediscovering the transformative power of the present moment, allowing them to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their experiences. Her ongoing commitment to sensorimotor psychotherapy training underscores her belief in a body-based approach to healing. This approach incorporates the energetic connections between physical sensations, movements, and present-moment experiences, the combinations of which are integral to holistic emotional and mental well-being.

At the core of Jodi's therapeutic philosophy is the belief that healing does not focus on pathology; instead, it involves addressing the underlying causes of distress and harnessing the energetic connections between the body, mind, and emotions. By creating a purposeful reconnection with one's embodied self, she has witnessed profound and enduring transformations towards emotional and mental well-being.
