Have you struggled with feeling good about yourself? How does your perception of yourself impact your life? Each of us have lived experiences that leave imprints on our lives sometimes impacting our ability to connect to ourselves and those around us. I aim to foster a space that is not only safe in therapy, but also brave in order to encourage---growth, self-discovery, and healing. I work with both adolescents and adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety, self-harming behaviors, eating disorders, body perception issues, and negative self-perception while employing a trauma informed approach to healing.

As a therapist, I believe we hold our stories, beliefs, and experiences in our bodies; these often impacting our healing and perception of self and may translate into harmful patterns and behaviors. Therapy is an opportunity to better understand yourself and explore how lived experiences impact your life.

For over 15 years I have taught yoga and meditation as a way for people to connect to their body. I employ verbal processing--in particular a Psychodynamic, Somatic and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach, in addition to mindfulness and movement based modalities.
