About My Clients

I have an extensive amount of experience working with women on issues related to eating disorders, body image, binge eating, depression, anxiety, codependency and trauma. I also work with life transitions including prenatal through parenting, and postpartum. My style is empathetic, direct and collaborative within a professional and non-judgmental atmosphere. I want to help you to heal from what is holding you back and find your joy. I work with individuals, couples and families age 16+.

My Background and Approach

With over 20 years of experience in the mental health field, I am passionate about helping others find their authenticity. I have extensive experience providing individual, couples and family counseling for teens and adults who were victims of trauma through Empact’s Trauma Healing Services. As the Clinical Director for Rosewood’s Intensive Outpatient program, I created and developed programming for clients recovering from eating disorders, managed treatment team meetings, facilitated group lectures and family support groups and provided individual, couples and family therapy. The most significant relationship in life is the one with yourself. My mission is two-fold: helping you create a healthy relationship with yourself, and an authentic connection with others. I specialize in an integrative, trauma-informed approach, combining different therapeutic tools and methods to fit the needs of my clients. Working collaboratively with my clients I will create a customized treatment plan.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Growing up as the youngest in a large blended family, I received a first-hand lesson in the complexities of family dynamics. I found myself put into the position of “mediator” when family conflict would occur, and it seemed like a natural response for me. As I grew up, I realized how important communication, functional boundaries and healthy relationships are in a person’s life. This focus on my family’s relationships left me feeling isolated and neglectful of my own inner emotions. Therapy provided me with the tools to explore my own feelings and attachments and led me to developing a healthy sense of self. These tools continue to guide my therapeutic process and are what I strive to provide for my clients. I am married with two children, and we love to hike and travel the world learning about different countries and cultures. I am an ally for the LGBTQ community, and supportive progressive issues and social justice.
