Life creates obstacles causing painful emotions, confusion, and disconnection. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, body image, an eating disorder, or daily coping skills, you might wonder how you will overcome such obstacles. With my unique approach to therapy, we will focus on your personal strengths, identify unconscious patterned behaviors, and guide you to a more fulfilling life. My mission is to encourage all beings to fearlessly honor who they are, find the tools necessary to freely live as the person they want to be, and to engage in their relationships with true connection.
I use a mindfulness-based approach to therapy, deepening one’s self-awareness, increasing self-compassion, and finding acceptance for where one is in the present moment. Clients often report, I deeply listen, provide reflective feedback, and challenge the barriers standing in the way of their personal growth.
I have been providing therapy services since 2016 and have a passion for connecting human beings to their wholeness. In 2023 I began to incorporate my dog Happy into my therapy work. During our sessions, Happy will provide comfort and support. Research suggests therapy animals help lower our blood pressure, increase engagement, and reduce anxiety/depression.
