*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, CHECK BACK LATER* Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. You might need help sorting out what's going on. As a therapist, I have learned that we are not alone in our struggles. People hurt together, and we also must heal together. Through our relationships and experiences, we can grow and rediscover what we thought was once lost. I want to help you down that path of discovery while using psychotherapeutic approaches such as attachment theory, AEDP, IFS, interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR.

Ever since the pandemic has started, you just can't seem to get your eating under control. It was hard enough to try to manage your food and weight when life was "normal". But nothing is normal anymore. There's a constant hum of anxiety in the background. The days are beginning to blend together, and feelings of isolation and depression are starting to creep in. You find yourself turning to food for comfort...or restricting your intake to help you feel you have control over some aspect of your life. You just can't seem to stop, and it's beginning to scare you. You begin to wonder what will happen to your body during the pandemic.

Doesn't it seem ironic that the only constant in life is change? Our lives are ever changing and evolving; weathering away at some areas while creating and rebuilding others. The more we cling to what we know, to the past, and to our expectations of how things should look, the more we struggle to find peace in the moment of what actually is. Because of this belief I view acceptance and the discovery of meaning in life experiences as essential pieces to the overall puzzle that is our health and happiness.

I believe art is a language everyone once spoke fluently- an innate ability we all possess. As children, we use visual imagery as a way to understand and navigate our surroundings and this serves as our personal connection to the world. My long relationship to visual art and intimacy with various media informs the way I guide you toward your own personal uncovering and self-exploration. Art is the central force of our work together and we continue to remain open and curious about what story it may reveal.
