About

Many clients I work with are struggling to find comfort and balance due to sudden events or long-standing dissatisfaction with aspects of their life. While I believe every stage of life brings opportunities for growth, times of transition may bring uncertainty, conflict, and loss. I strive to be gentle and empathic, as I encourage clients to go at their own pace, to seek their own truth, and to find their own voice. I provide a warm, non-judgmental, interactive therapy relationship that aims to help people deepen their insight, break unhealthy patterns, and create more satisfying and fulfilling lives.
Although my clients struggle with a number of issues including stress, depression, and academic or career questions; I have a deep passion for working with those who are concerned about their relationship with food and their body. I also work with individuals and couples adjusting to life-cycle events and changes.
Based on my clients' needs, I use a variety of approaches so my clients' may achieve the life they seek. Together, we explore patterns of the past, understand issues shaping the present, and make changes for the future. Each person's path is unique; it is my privilege to share the journey.
