I also treat anxiety, depression, social phobia, low self-esteem, body image and disordered eating, weight loss, work-life balance, life transitions, postpartum, grief and loss, and divorce/break up recovery.
When life's challenges are overwhelming, maintaining a happy and productive life can be difficult. Asking for help through these times is not easy, but it's truly a sign of strength. I help individuals work through emotional problems by identifying and changing limiting and negative patterns in their life, and establishing healthier ways to cope with stress. This ultimately leads to improved self-esteem, empowerment, enriched relationships, and fulfillment. I work collaboratively with my clients, and establish a trusting therapeutic relationship providing compassion and support. I am dedicated to helping my clients achieve their personal goals.

I am also trained in hypnosis, which works well with anxiety, weight loss, fears, and personal aspirations.
Are you feeling "out of sync," unmotivated, confused, lethargic, anxious, depressed? Are your relationships suffering? Your productivity at work? Your belief in yourself? When one area of your life is depleted, it can create imbalance in other areas of your life. This can include areas of emotional health, physical health, nutrition, sleep, relationships, work, money, and spirituality. My holistic approach addresses clients as a "whole" person...all aspects within yourself (biology, thoughts, feelings) and outside yourself (work, culture, relationships, finances, etc.). As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Certified Holistic Health Coach, I facilitate your body's own natural healing process.

Nowadays everyone needs another human being to talk to. Life gets busy, everyday stress accumulates, and we are left struggling to get through our many obligations of the day. Some people experience anxiety when faced with so many obstacles and such a fast-paced, high-stress lifestyle we all live. Others become depressed as they compare themselves with "picture-perfect" lives our friends lead on social media. Others yet may find substances, such as drugs or alcohol, temporarily relieve their symptoms of depression/anxiety or whatever else they may struggle with, but create more problems in a long run.
