Hello and welcome! As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I look forward to being a non-judgmental, collaborative support on your journey. My approach is warm and compassionate, and my goal is to assist you with identifying and exploring your own inner strengths as well as your hopes for the future. In discovering where you want to go, we can work together to process underlying issues that may be keeping you stuck and to develop strategies for change. I believe that everyone deserves and has the ability to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life, and that includes you!
In addition, I am also a Certified Yoga Teacher. Depending upon my client’s needs and preferences, I offer talk therapy, private yoga lessons, and/or a combination of the two, which may also include mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation techniques. Components of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and other therapeutic modalities may be utilized as well.
I have been working in the mental health field for over 10 years. For the past 5 years, I have specialized in eating disorder treatment, including treatment for anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and avoidant/restrictive food intake. Other areas of expertise and training include: emotional eating, body image issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, substance abuse, self-harm, and family and relationship issues. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and families.
