I believe we all possess the strength to overcome life’s challenges, but often we need extra guidance, support and new “tools” to get to a more fulfilling place. My goal in therapy and coaching is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to help clients create new pathways for growth, self-compassion and a better understanding of their life experience.
I work with many therapeutic issues including anxiety, depression, emotional eating, grief, relationship / communication challenges, codependency, women in the prenatal/postnatal phase of life, parenting and trauma. I work with older adolescents (15+) and adults using techniques from Cognitive Behavioral, Gestalt, Transpersonal and mind-body/mindfulness therapies. In the fast-paced world we live in, it can be easy to get caught up in overwhelm, stress, confusion or simply feeling stuck. My goal is to empower my clients by helping them move from a place of stuckness and uncertainty to creating space for clarity, freedom and joy. I work with clients by sloooowwwwing things down...slowing down thoughts, emotions, physical experiences and patterns of avoidance to notice what needs to be known, understood and resolved. I frequently employ creative techniques such as art therapy and guided visualization to help clients tap into deeper levels of awareness and insight.
As a health and wellness coach I assist clients in creating more clarity, energy, and vitality in their lives. I strongly believe in the mind-body connection and will work from both of these angles to help my clients find healing. I particularly enjoy working with clients around digestive issues, fatigue, headaches/migraines, weight loss, body image, hormone issues and skin irritations (acne, rashes, etc.). If we want to live our very best life it’s important to be intentional and focused about our choices, and I strive to provide the resources and accountability you need to help facilitate powerful change.
