If you are searching for gentle and non judgmental help from a well-informed, caring, naturalistic counselor, you have come to the right place. I provide a client-centered, holistic approach to counseling. Current research suggests that our mind is not the only contributor to our mental health, so I prefer to approach mental health through a mind-body-spirit approach with a focus on the nervous system and gut health. I do so with the knowledge in mind that you, my client, have all the tools you need in order to balance and optimize your mental health. I am here to help you extract and learn to use them.

I know that asking for help can feel like a burden sometimes. Do you feel like you have to be “everything” to everyone but feel alone when your in need? Are you struggling to say “no” then resent saying yes? Do you put everyone before you and then don't have enough time for you or your dreams? Do you feel “stuck” after giving so much and then realize your not making progress in your life? More often than we realize, we tend to lose ourselves giving what we don’t have while trying to manage it all; parenthood, relationships, careers, and life situations. We then become overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, or stuck about our next move.
