There is no one-size fits-all approach to healing. Sometimes you are just a shift-in perspective away from an issue being gone from your life for good. I specialize in helping those with issues of fear, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, health/wellness troubles and addiction, but am available for a wide variety of other issues as well. My therapy programs are specifically tailored and designed to help each individual. Through the sacred process of uncovering, healing and releasing old beliefs, you can re-discover who you really are & find lasting serenity.

My role as a counselor is to walk alongside you and assist you in uncovering and discovering what is true for you and the beliefs you hold about yourself that may or may not serve you well at this point in your life. Together we will look at the symptoms (often defined as problems) that are interfering with your life and your goals, and explore ways to manifest a more authentic and satisfying life that is consistent with your own unique psycho, social, physical and spiritual values. My style as a therapist is compassionate, direct, non-judgmental, and solution focused.

Often times in life, hardship and trauma force us to sever the connection to our authentic self in order to survive. This may show up in your life as anxiety or depression, difficulty in managing your emotions, or maybe it's just noticing that it's a little harder to make it through each day. Whatever needs may be seeking your attention, I am here to offer empathetic and compassionate support. My goal in working with clients is to help them discover ways they can leave survival mode behind and regain access to their intuition and authentic self.

If you’re reading this, you are courageously contemplating changes in your life. Perhaps you’re looking for relief from anxiety, trauma or depression. Or maybe you’re experiencing grief and loss, conflict in your relationships, troubles with work, or just a gnawing feeling that you’re missing out on something in your life. I congratulate you on considering therapy. It’s not easy to be vulnerable with someone you don’t know. Yet the power of being witnessed, heard and understood can be transformative.

***My practice is currently full.*** Whether you’re dealing with new stressors or old wounds, therapy can help you feel better. The process of sharing your story in a supportive, non-judgmental setting allows you to untangle it, find the important threads, and weave them together into a stronger, more resilient fabric. This may sound daunting, but you don’t have to do it alone. We’ll roll up our sleeves and work together to clarify what’s most important to you, deepen your understanding of what’s getting in your way, and most importantly, take the steps needed to not just go forward, but to grow forward.

The quality of our personal relationships is one of the most important things in life. Relationships of all types--romantic, parental, friends, co-workers, etc.-- have the capacity for both tremendous joy and tremendous aggravation and heartache. My speciality is working with couples to help improve romantic relationships. Humans were created to be in relationship with one another and whether I am working with an individual, a couple or a larger family unit, the client's ability to maintain healthy relationships with family and loved ones is a primary focus.

I see adults regardless of size, gender, sex, race, ethnicity, ability, religion who feel like a stranger within their own body, mind, and spirit. This may be due to loss of faith (deconstruction), identity work, existential questions, relational issues, chronic self neglect, disordered eating, trauma. Those who are hungering to be more attuned and embodied in their emotions, values, sense of worthiness but somewhere got lost along the way and are ready to find home again.

Welcome! I'm glad you're here. I help people discover a more peaceful relationship with food, eating, and their bodies. Like many in this field, I came to this work through my own journey with mental health, food, and body. I continue to do this work in hopes of connecting with others and helping them tune into the wisdom their bodies already hold on their path to healing. I offer both mental health therapy and nutrition services and specialize in food and body relationship and disordered eating. I also enjoy working with folks struggling with anxiety, depression, and life transitions.
