About

Our thoughts, beliefs and bodies reflect our emotional struggles. We often come to therapy when old ways of coping aren't working anymore- when we long for comfort, relief, or more authentic and deeper connections in our relationships. The whole person needs to be addressed in times of crisis, transition and loss. Healing is a word derived from the German hailjan- “to make whole.” I work with a holistic, acceptance-based and contemplative approach to psychotherapy. Practicing self-compassion and self- acceptance lead to less reactivity and more peaceful, integrated and intentional lives.
My focus is to guide clients through life's challenging transitions- with greater acceptance and less struggle. Specializing in: late-adolescence; women's life transitions (infertility/pregnancy-loss/menopause); body-image/dysmorphia, disordered eating, HAES/IE; divorce (high conflict/narcissistic abuse); trauma; grief/loss (anticipatory/ambiguous grief).
A holistic understanding of life changes (mind, body, spirit) lends itself to the work I do as a psychotherapist. I am also an accessible yoga studio founder/teacher, spiritual caregiver and trained in meditation/mindfulness. My approach is warm, attuned and caring. Through acceptance and compassion- ease, purpose and wholeness are accessible to all of us.
