"Our bodies are not the only parts of ourselves that need a tune up from time to time. The mind is a powerful tool that can benefit from support and encouragement. Whether it's a job change, loss, relational issues, living with physical pain or just day-to-day stress, a supportive ear can mean the difference between just getting through the day and living the life that you long for. I have experience working with many clients especially those with eating disorders, depression and anxiety disorders including OCD. Please email for questions or to set an appointment."

When clients & I both consider it to be helpful, I utilize EMDR, yoga, meditation, deep breathing, & overall body awareness to help maintain emotional and physical balance which results in a clearer sense of direction. This clarity informs our decision-making process when we feel stuck in life.
