About

I am passionate about working with young women struggling with disordered eating, body image, and identity. I treasure supporting women do the work of becoming who they aspire to be, while offering scaffolding around issues of empowerment, confidence, anxiety reduction, and self esteem. I bring to the table strong experience assisting young women through transitions and internal transformations of many kinds.
I use motivational interviewing to empower clients to edit their own narratives around their lives. I support clients to see and identify the voice of their highest self.
Putting yourself first is not easy. I am glad you are here to explore this first step. I believe we are each the expert on our own lives. I would be honored to be a part of your journey and together, to cross whatever obstacles are causing a barrier to joy and fulfillment. I use humor, kindness and compassion to help regain lost and unrecognized self-worth.
