12/21/2023- Yes, we are currently accepting new clients. Welcome to A Fresh Start Therapy. FYI: This time of year is difficult for many as we get less sunlight and our days are shorter. Both Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and Major Depressive Disorder flare up in the Fall. Consider making a small change in your environment like adding art to your sleeping area or tossing a piece of furniture or decor that no longer fits who you are. Making subtle updates to your home or work space can improve your mood a bit. Give it a try!

As a yoga therapist, I believe that each of us has the innate power to heal ourselves and that we also need lots of help along the way. I love yoga therapy because it's focused, personalized, and individualized care. The same sorts of problems that draw people to more traditional psychotherapy also bring people to yoga therapy - depression, anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties, disordered eating, trauma, and many other types of pain and suffering.

My practice is devoted to providing psychotherapy for older adolescents and adults from diverse walks of life. I treat clients who suffer from anxiety, depression, unresolved trauma, loss, grief, and other sources of seemingly unmanageable distress. I also help clients navigate specific life transitions -- for example, to a new school, job, relationship, or parenthood. Finally, I welcome clients who are experiencing relatively diffuse, general discontent and searching for greater fulfillment with respect to their health, relationships, education, job career, or creative endeavors.

I am a counselor with years of experience working with clients who are managing depression, anxiety, and chronic illnesses. I have specialized training in working with those who experience interpersonal violence and sexual assault/abuse. When an individual survives a trauma or hardship it can be extremely difficult to cope and obtain fulfillment. Whatever the struggle is I believe in helping clients identify their strengths in order to overcome the obstacle.

Please note that all sessions are via tele-medicine. I believe that clients seeking counseling services desire tools for living a better life, and I strive to provide those tools. I do not push change on clients, but rather helps them articulate how they want their lives to be, and then collaboratively set out to put the foundation in place to create that life. I feel that clients gain the most from the counseling experience when they feel supported, encouraged, and understood by their therapist. This process works best in a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space, which I provide.
