Announcement icon I am seeing clients during COVID-19 using a telehealth video platform.
I provide counseling for people with chronic illness, physical health challenges, and caregivers. I also help people develop a healing relationship with their bodies and food. In counseling, I will help you Iive more skillfully and find joy despite the profound changes in your life and your body. You'll gain the presence of mind and the freedom to choose a better life for yourself.
I utilize acceptance and mindfulness-based approaches to help you change the way you respond to your emotions, your body, and disease. My approach focuses on reaching beyond your distress to the larger purpose of your life so you can get on really living.
If you think I could be a good fit for you, please visit my website to see if I am taking new clients. There you'll find more information about me and my therapy approach. Fill out the contact form (or waitlist form) on the Working Together page to request a free phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
