About

I help people create insight, identify challenges, think positively, and learn about themselves so that they can feel better. I also help folks challenge self-defeating thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors so that they can rekindle a passion for life. The path toward a life filled with love and happiness starts with a single first step: self-acceptance. Sounds simple doesn't it? The right mindset can make all the difference. I believe in people's innate ability to accept and heal themselves. I'm the guide to help you discover what works for YOU.
I'm here to help YOU. I help people of all sizes, backgrounds, beliefs, and identities. Words label us but they don't define us - the need for love and self-acceptance is universal. You are UNIQUE. I'm here to help you THRIVE.
Success requires us to work together. Let me walk down that path with you. Are you motivated to learn new, more positive ways of thinking? Are you curious about yourself? Great, let's get started! This is an exciting journey we're about to embark on!

The IE approach emphasizes connecting with your body and mind to establish awareness of the body's innate signals. The 10 principle framework is a behavioral approach versus a restrictive approach based on rules. With IE skills, you can finally make peace with food! The cost is $45 per person/session.
