About My Clients

Are you tired of the emotional roller coaster? Do you feel like no matter what you do it's not good enough? You go through the motions and pretend everything's okay as you try to manage the anxiety, depression and self-doubt but you can't do it anymore. You feel alone and no one seems to understand what you're going through. You want more for yourself; you want to feel confident and calm so you can connect with others and be present in your life. You're ready to make changes to get you there.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in helping women cope with anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, sudden traumatic experiences, relationship concerns, self-worth, body image and personal development. I believe in using the mind-body connection so that you gain insight and self-awareness as you uncover what you need to heal. I work through a trauma conscious lens due to my deep understanding of how trauma affects you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I provide you with tools and techniques you can use between sessions to manage your emotions, handle stress and practice self-care. I use somatic and talk therapy as well as spiritual practices related to breathe work, yoga philosophy and meditation for overall health and well being. As well as a therapist, I'm a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), Trauma Conscious Yoga Method Teacher (TCYMT) and Yin Yoga Certified. You can visit my website for information about my work.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that connection, compassion, support and community are essential for humans to heal and grow into their true self. I believe that "true self" is uncovered as we learn to trust ourselves and our ability to know what we want and need in our lives. From my personal and professional experience, I know that change is possible and that you can feel the same sense of freedom and compassion for yourself. I trust in the power of my intuition to guide me and want other women to do the same for themselves. I truly believe when one woman heals that it brings all women closer to healing. Due to my strong connection to the feminine and belief in women's rights and empowerment I'm a supporter of Planned Parenthood, Association for Size Diversity and Health, Earthjustice and my local yoga community.
