    Your mind and body are not separate, so neither is my approach to therapy. I'd like to support you with becoming whole in mind, body, and spirit so that you can be resilient to any challenge that life throws your way.

    ​My clients thank me for helping them:
    -realize that what they want is just as valid as what they need.
    -learn self-care skills.
    -develop a compassionate relationship with SELF.
    -experience a level of freedom in their lives that they hadn't known before.
    -take action towards the dreams they had dismissed long ago.
    -enjoy healthier relationships with friends and family – whether this is the family they grew up in or one that they created for themselves.

    You may be seeking short-term therapy to work on a specific life challenge or longer-term therapy to work on understanding and changing the underlying beliefs, behavioral patterns, or relationship dynamics that are no longer serving you. Whatever your goals, we work together to customize a holistic plan of care.
