Why Therapy? Why Now?

Perhaps you are seeking therapy for support with old habits you would like to change. Perhaps you are dealing with overwhelm due to a new, stressful situation (e.g., divorce, death of a loved one, serious accident). Perhaps you are here because you are now ready to tackle some old wounds that have not healed, traumas that have not been processed.

Having gone through several of my own life transitions, challenges and traumas, I personally understand the need and value of therapy to support us in navigating life and guide us on our healing journey.

No matter the reason for seeking therapy, most of us will have an innate awareness of something feeling not quite right, a deep-seated intuition that we are not living our best life. This niggling feeling will persist, and may present itself in various ways. You may experience a sense of discontent, disconnection, loneliness, or a lack of focus and direction. It may even manifest in physical symptoms such as headaches, digestive issues or sleep disturbances.

How Therapy can Help

The goal of therapy is to provide a safe space within which I can offer the support you need to express, explore and discover yourself and begin the healing process. We tap into and utilize your inner strengths, working towards self-empowerment so that you can choose to make the changes needed to live your best life.

About Me and My Approach

I bring compassion, respect and unconditional positive regard to sessions. I use an eclectic approach of traditional therapies (e.g., CBT, talk therapy) along with integrative practices (e.g., meditation, mindfulness, somatic therapy). We co-create the sessions using methods that feel right for you in order to address your unique needs and way of healing. We work in a safe space and proceed at your pace.

In addition to my psychotherapy training which includes a psycho-spiritual component as well as somatic healing, I have certifications in Advanced Master Program on the Treatment of Trauma, Hypnotherapy, Advanced Nutritional Medicine, CBT, ACT, Treating Anxiety, Play Therapy and Reiki.

I work with clients who are experiencing:

  • Anxiety/Depression

  • Low self-esteem

  • Interpersonal relationships

  • Attachment

  • Childhood trauma

  • Emotional regulation

  • Parenting

  • Self-care

  • Grief & Loss

  • Feeling stuck

  • Life transitions

  • Eating disorders

    YOGA THERAPY (individual/small group)

    As an experienced, certified yoga instructor, I combine my lifelong passion for fitness, movement and dance in yoga classes. I use my psychotherapy training to infuse my classes with the spiritual teachings of authentic yoga, guiding participants to integrate the physical asanas with their emotional and mental well-being through breathwork, mantras, chakra work, music, and positive affirmations. (Please note yoga therapy is not covered by insurance plans).

    AVAILABILITY & CONTACT Contact me for a free 15 minute consultation for either psychotherapy or yoga therapy.

    A limited amount of sliding scale spots are available. I enjoy working with students.
