About

Hi! I am a self-esteem and body image specialist. I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist and work with adult individuals and teens. I specialize in helping individuals struggling with eating disorders, distorted body image, post-partum transitions and/or depression, work on building up their self-esteem, explore intuitive eating, decrease perfectionism and anxiety, and develop healthy relationships. I help my clients to develop a deeper sense of self-worth, examine old behavior patterns and create new patterns, learn boundary setting, and create a better balanced and more fulfilling life.
I want to work collaboratively with you to create a life that is meaningful to you. I will help you explore the ways in which your emotional, mental and physical well-being are interconnected. I am also trained in ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) an evidenced based therapy for the treatment of trauma.
I am a LGBTQIA+ affirmative, body positive therapist and incorporate intuitive eating principles into my practice. I am committed to creating a safe space for clients of color to explore their identities and experiences. Contact me for a free phone consultation to see if we are a good fit.
