You are tired of feeling anxious and of not living the life you want. It’s tricky- you know you’re hard on yourself, and you know that pressure makes change more difficult. Breathe. I know you can build a healthier relationship with yourself. Anxiety and low self-worth can improve, and they do not have to stop you from experiencing a meaningful and well-lived life. Worries show up for everyone, but they don’t have to dictate what you do. You want to relate to yourself in new and helpful ways. My practice welcomes all identities. I’ll work side-by-side with you from a trauma-informed, social justice and mindfulness lens.

As a psychotherapist, I work from a strengths-based, IFS approach with specialized training in mindfulness and DBT skills coaching and therapy.
Do you desire to move past issues related to food and body, fear and disconnection? To heal the depression and anxiety that is getting in your way of the life you want? Are you ready to begin understanding your mind body connection and how it can be used to deepen your connection with yourself and others? I specialize in traditional psychotherapy as well as yoga therapy to facilitate healing from eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship distress, and more. When appropriate, I utilize yogic philosophy and technique, such as breathing practices, meditation and asana (physical forms), to provide a body centered, whole-self experience of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing. Yoga can be integrated into regular psychotherapy or as an adjunct treatment to recovery.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
