Hi, I’m so happy that you are here! I am currently scheduling new clients the first week of November. Eating disorders, anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder and trauma are among the diagnoses I work with in my practice.

Together we will uncover how outdated beliefs may obstruct your growth and inner-peace, and as a result lead you to live a more embodied and fulfilling life!

Life situations, such as grief or traumatic events, can cause day to day functioning to feel insurmountable.

I understand the significance of providing quality service and meeting the needs of those who put their trust in me. Your counseling experience will fit your needs, whether this means meeting you where you are in life, making services affordable or receiving counseling services through video and telephone sessions.
