I work with clients who generally feel stuck in their lives, anxiety, depression, past, or circumstances. I also received specialized training in health psychology and help those looking to cope with chronic illness or seeking to improve chronic pain or insomnia. My clients learn to show up to life in a meaningful way, while learning to choose effective behaviors when faced with stressful situations. This is a collaborative process that is unique to your personality and needs, and the relationship we create. My clients strive to be defined not by their circumstances, past, thoughts or feelings, but by the choices they commit to.

Life can be chaotic and confusing sometimes. While we are all equipped to cope with stress in various ways, chronic stress can become overwhelming. If you're experiencing anxiety, depression, anger management issues, or chronic pain, seeing a therapist may help alleviate symptoms. Therapy can help regain access to your problem-solving abilities through stress reduction while teaching you new methods of coping - strengthening your repertoire of coping skills.

As a chronic illness warrior/ spoonie, I completely understand what it feels like to sit on the other side of the couch (or, screen), and how important it is to chat with someone who 'gets it.
I specialize in chronic health conditions and trauma, which I understand first hand. Chronic medical conditions (i.e. diabetes, dysautonomia, EDS, Lyme disease, Hashimoto’s, mast cell activation syndrome, vasculitis, sickle cell disease, mold illness, etc.) often come with significant challenges, like fear, anxiety, grief, medical PTSD, and may interfere with relationships and daily function. I utilize various holistic evidence-based treatment modalities and practice-based evidence, contingent on each person’s needs and goals, with an added focus on mindfulness techniques, positive psychology, and strengths-based therapy.

Sometimes life throws obstacles at you that are out of your control, but that does not mean you cannot live your optimally healthy life. Being truly healthy includes emotional, social, mental and physical well-being. When these aspects of life are out of balance due to health problems, work stress, or personal issues, it can feel like your whole world is falling apart. Working through these challenges and learning the best coping tools can help you put it back together.
