Hey! My name is Bre, and I am so happy you are here. My therapy experience covers a lot of ground, as I have worked with kids, adults and families over issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, and people pleasing. However, my primary experience has been with eating disorders and body image issues, with special focus on Binge Eating Disorder. I am Health At Every Size® aligned and fat positive, and I love helping clients break free of diet mentality and dismantle the negative messages that have contributed to pain and low self-esteem.
Are you looking to improve your relationship with your significant other? Do you find yourself constantly having the same argument, building up resentments, or losing your connection? Let's talk about it. I help individuals and couples develop healthier relationships and reach their goals by finding solutions catered to their unique needs and strengths.
Our lives are continually evolving and changing. We carry with us tools, strategies, behaviors and ways of coping with the variety of challenges, shifts and changes we experience, feel and encounter. Some of the ways in which we think about ourselves and interpret our experiences support us and work well for us, some did for a specific time and no longer do, and some of these thoughts/behaviors didn’t support us at all, are unkind, and we find ourselves acting against ourselves.

Living authentically requires a sense of self and trust of self that many struggle to achieve for many reasons. A disconnect to self often culminates in issues related to: ineffective communication, enmeshment with others' boundaries, unhappy/unbalanced relationships, false narratives that perpetuate misery, hypersensitivity, self expression/embodiment, expression of needs/wants, emotional regulation, "Imposter Syndrome," intergenerational trauma and patterns of choices/behaviors that keep you feeling "stuck." I enjoy helping others to reach within and reclaim power through insight oriented approaches to illicit real change.
It is truly an honor to help those seeking to heal and grow. At its most basic function, I believe therapy is about creating change, and my goal is to facilitate that change with compassion and without judgement. We can get stuck in patterns of thinking and behaving. When change is needed, it is helpful to dive into those patterns to determine what is still useful and helpful, and what no longer works - and importantly, how those patterns began. Change can feel daunting and scary, and the first step is recognizing the need for it. It's a privilege to be invited along with you on that journey.
My mission is to help clients find inner peace and mental clarity. I will assist you gently through the healing process as you develop new awareness and discover inner strengths that will lead you to inner peace and mental clarity. I see the whole person and will encourage you to assess various aspects of your life and implement small but vital routines within your control and pace. Service is my core value. I divide my work schedule between seeing patients at a hospital setting and in private practice.

I firmly believe we were created to live life in the present with joy, peace and love. But life can get pretty overwhelming, right?
