About My Clients

Peaceful Path Counseling focuses on working with individuals experiencing the following challenges/in the following areas: learning to cope with life challenges and stress, anxiety relief, body image issues, self-esteem issues, managing relationship issues, coping with new, challenging, and/or painful life experiences and changes, such as parenthood, work-related stressors, grief and loss, trauma, etc.

My Background and Approach

Life can be unbelievably challenging. It can also be tremendously fulfilling. If you find yourself struggling more than living, I am here to help. My goal as a therapist is to provide you with a safe, relaxed space where you can let it out, be heard and understood, and build the life you want. I work with you to understand and unpack the questions and challenges you are experiencing and develop effective ways of managing them. I operate from a humanistic, person-centered approach, connecting with you in a real, down-to-earth way, with genuine compassion and openness. I have significant experience and training in treatment modalities related to healthy attachments, mind/body connection, trauma, emotional management and regulation, and approaches such as CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing. This allows me to take an holistic, integrative, and individualized approach in order to work with you on a deeper, personalized level.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The context of our lives is an essential, but sometimes missing, piece of treatment. As a therapist, I am committed to constantly learning, listening, and understanding the social, societal, and cultural issues that impact my clients and my peers. I've spent much of my career invested in building cultural competence in the field, and engaging young people in discussions on social issues and volunteer work within the community. I am an ally to the LGBTQ+ community and to people of color, and am continuously learning how to be a stronger one. I am also engaged in the HAES/intuitive eating community, which is strongly integrated into my work with self-esteem and body image. I believe that for therapy to be effective, it must come from a place of genuine interest, desire to understand, belief in human capacity for change, and belief in humanity in general. I try to bring that to every session. And I also won't ever turn down a brief, sidetrack discussion about dogs (my favorite!).

I offer online counseling in the following states:
