About

Issues stemming from anxiety, stress, depression, and trauma can get in our way of living a satisfying, fulfilling life. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We all have within us the capacity to cope with, and even grow from, hardships and challenges. With my guidance we will explore and process the underlying fears, unmet needs, and negative beliefs that keep you “stuck”. We will cultivate your inner strengths to help you become healthier, more resilient, and enjoy more positivity in your life and your relationships with others.
I specialize in working with women who are insightful, curious, and open to personal growth - from teens struggling with the challenges of school, family, and relationships; to young women coping with career challenges and major life transitions; to women facing later-in-life issues around identity and aging. 
My own experiences with depression, anxiety, and trauma led to my desire to help others and pursue an education in Psychology.  My specialized training in grief & loss and 25+ years as a fitness specialist make me uniquely qualified to help clients overcome obstacles to achieve true mind-body health & well-being. I look forward to helping you!
