I provide support for new or expecting mothers and partners, couples, individuals struggling with body image and disordered eating, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, and women's issues. I do this work because I believe that it is every human being's right and potential to live a fulfilled and healthy life, and often, we just need to feel safe, seen, and heard in order to find our way there. If you are ready to experience relief, cultivate new tools that support your healing and growth, and claim your vitality and purpose, I am here to partner with you on your journey.

A Masters's degree in Integral Counseling Psychology, a certification in Perinatal Mental Health, many years of experience working in eating disorder treatment, a two year training in the Hakomi Method (a mindfulness based somatic therapy), and my own journey of healing and becoming.
