Announcement icon I will only be seeing clients via teletherapy at this time. Studies have shown that it's just as effective as in-person therapy.

About

I specialize in chronic health conditions and trauma, which I understand first hand. Chronic medical conditions (i.e. dysautonomia POTS, EDS, Lyme disease, Bartonella, IBS, fibro, fatigue CFS, Hashimoto’s, mast cell MCAS, sickle cell disease, mold illness CIRS, etc.) often come with significant challenges, like fear, anxiety, grief, medical PTSD, and may interfere with relationships and daily function. I utilize various holistic evidence-based treatment modalities and practice-based evidence, contingent on each person’s needs and goals, with an added focus on mindfulness techniques, positive psychology, and strengths-based therapy.
As a chronic illness warrior/ spoonie, I completely understand what it feels like to sit on the other side of the couch (or, screen), and how important it is to chat with someone who 'gets it.' We will work together to create a safe space and find the root cause of your dis-ease, and invite wellness and joy. From chronic illness, to chronic wellness.
Please visit my website at www.beginwithintoday.com, or follow me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/beginwithintoday. *I believe in an ongoing effort to address and dismantle systemic racism, and oppression by creating a courageous space for dialogue, education, and advocacy in learning/unlearning how we each play a role.
