I'm a firm believer that taking good care of your emotional well-being is integral to optimizing overall health and wellness. Making the decision to pursue therapy is a process that requires strength and vulnerability. I am here to meet your lived experience with empathy, humility, curiosity, and compassion. Confronting painful experiences is challenging, and our work together may be hard at times as a result. I've also witnessed how these same challenges present opportunities for healing and growth.

I can help you understand why you are struggling; and more importantly, guide you to changes which will lead to more pleasure and productivity in your everyday life. More today than ever, we are finding that trauma – large and small is at the core of our difficulties.

For many parents, mealtime can be frustrating, especially if challenging behavior goes beyond ‘typical pickiness.’ As the director of Healthy Beginnings, a behavioral feeding therapy program, I have helped children that have displayed a variety of challenging mealtimes behaviors. This includes selectivity by food, color, brand, and texture, as well as children who may vomit at the sight of a new food, or perhaps refuse to feed themselves with utensils. Feeding tube dependency is another area in which I have taught children how to eat and drink who perhaps have had minimal or no experience with oral feeding.

We're living through such a stressful time, how can you possibly be feeling or functioning at your best? As your coping skills are stretched thin, struggles once successfully managed may be stronger than you can keep up with. Relationship issues can intensify as tending to your own discomfort takes more energy, leaving less to offer your partner. On top of all this, navigating the mental health world to find a therapist who "gets you" is a chore unto itself! I'm happy to help, if you feel we might be a good fit.
