As a direct and compassionate, clinical social worker, certified drug and alcohol counselor, and yoga therapist, I utilize evidence based interventions to help establish a stable foundation for recovery and sustainable change. In individual psychotherapy sessions we will build skills and evidence to use as you navigate life in new ways. We will explore barriers and patterns of emotions, behaviors or thoughts, to create space for an increase in motivation and willingness towards your goals. I believe in the power of resiliency and hope to be part of your journey.

I also offer yoga therapy for individuals struggling with mood disorders, body dissatisfaction, stress, grief, and trauma. Yoga therapy is offered individually or in a group. Sessions may include a sequence of asana (postures), breath work, meditation and visualization. If you can breathe, you can do yoga!

MYBody, PLLC is currently accepting new clients. Our specialities include the treatment of: mood disorders, eating disorders, addiction, and trauma. We offer group support including Dialectical Behavior Therapy Group, Yoga Therapy for Body Image, 5 Day Eating Disorder Intensives, Nutritional support and Intensive Outpatient.

More about this group

Yoga for Body Image

Yoga therapy for body image is a specialized sequence to engage the union of mind and body. Body Image is the concept of how your body looks and changes based on your feelings about yourself. Body image is heavily influenced by environment, external messaging, and yourself. In yoga therapy we will explore one of the main tenants of yoga- do no harm to yourself or others. To set diet culture images aside, and learn to love and be kind to yourself. Being vulnerable is part of being your most authentic self, and that is what yoga teaches. Happiness starts within!

More about this group

Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient

Eating Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program is for individuals ages 16+ who have been diagnosed with an eating disorder, are medically stable and in need of more structure to progress in recovery. IOP consists of: Therapy groups (skills, process, body image, experiential, relapse prevention groups), meal support, yoga therapy, weekly individual therapy, and weekly nutrition follow-up. We use evidenced-based treatments to work towards changing unhelpful behavior and thinking patterns, progressing forward in recovery and finding the authentic self. This treatment option creates more structure and support than outpatient therapy, or is a step-down from partial hospitalization and inpatient levels of care.
