Areas of focus include: Life transition, issue resolution, personal growth, career direction, spiritual growth, communication skill-building, women's issues , parenting skills, relationship issues, and mental health concerns such as depression and anxiety.
When we make the choice to live a healthier existence, to thrive rather than just survive in the world, we may find that we need support, nurturing, guidance, or just a witness to our life process. I can be that for you. Choosing the right therapist is paramount. I am dedicated to the development of human potential and will assist you in increasing self-awareness, self-healing, emotional/spiritual growth, and behavior change. I believe in the co-creation of the therapeutic process. Together, we will identify and explore areas/issues that may be causing you discomfort/distress. I can help.

Struggling with food? Down on your body? Sadly, it's so easy, in our culture, to dislike our bodies. It's also easy to find ourselves mired in a cycle of overeating, efforts to get "back on track", and yet more overeating or bingeing. We can find ourselves consumed by thoughts of what we will eat, what we won't eat, what we wish we could eat, what we ate last night. It can be exhausting. It can zap the joy and zest right out of us.

All of us are unique, and have different needs at different times. Sometimes we are emotionally overwhelmed because of things that happened in the past, things that happened today, or both. I specialize in working with people who have experienced trauma. Trauma is a heavy word that means different things to different people, can be complicated and overwhelming, and can be either something that happened that feels big, or something that happened that feels small. All of this is okay. If you feel like you have been traumatized by something, that is your right, and I invite you to access support in moving through that experience.

My practice is heart-centered, and based on empowerment and choice. I believe we all have the ability and the right to live in deep and meaningful connection with ourselves and others. We often hold core-beliefs that get in our way: I am not enough, I am not lovable, etc. These core beliefs often show up as emotional patterns of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or other life stressors. In therapy, we begin by understanding these core misconceptions, and learning skills to slow down the busy mind enough to notice them in the moment. By noticing, we create space to

I believe that when all parts of us are heard, we begin to self-validate, allowing us to have a greater understanding of ourselves and stand in our power. With my education and background in social work it is important to me to create a non-judgmental, nurturing space in order to empower each individual and begin the necessary work of coming home to themselves. During session, I invite clients to safely peel back the layers and dive deep within. I works alongside clients to provide them with the security to allow their internal and external worlds to align, providing the freedom to embrace vulnerability.
