About

Are you experiencing a challenging time in your life? Unsure about what to expect out of counseling? I understand that making the decision to seek help can be daunting but following through with this process can lead to healing, wellness and growth. It takes courage to make the decision to seek out therapy and you have already taken the first step. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to express themselves authentically along with a style and environment that is both welcoming and warm.
I am a specialist in postpartum mental health. I also assist clients with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, divorce, life transitions, parenting, pregnancy, body positivity and other concerns. I am trained in domestic violence counseling, mind body connection, crisis prevention and I am a 200hr RYT (yoga instructor).
By using an individualized approach with methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, thought training, relaxation techniques, mind-body connection exercises, yoga, reflection and solution based counseling, a new outlook on issues can be achieved for a greater sense of confidence and wellness. I encourage you to take the next step forward!
