I don’t believe in perpetuating the stigma surrounding mental health recovery. I believe counseling is a social justice issue that needs to be expanded to serve all populations. Mental well-being takes all different forms. It is not white, female, straight, thin, or young. My pledge to you is to do my best to remove stigmas from our work together and make my services as accessible as possible.
I offer affordable psychotherapy and coaching to those struggling with their mental health. I work with people - not a diagnosis. Over the years, I have worked extensively with people struggling with eating disorders. I have worked in various well-known treatment facilities among individuals at all levels of care. I have been witness to all types of eating disorders and know that no disorder looks the same. I also have experience with addiction, mood disorders, trauma, gender issues, sexuality, and relationship struggles. As a mental health provider, I am here to learn about your experience and where you wish to go in the future.
I come from a client-centered perspective where we will work collaboratively to find a recovery approach that feels best for you. I am also a trained yoga teacher, as well as a professional artist. I have seen the power of merging these aspects into my work to deepen the client's exploration of their creativity and connection with their body.
I chose this line of work because I am passionate about empowering individuals to reach their full potential. Each person is unique, and it is an honor to walk alongside them in their journey towards well-being. Every step along the therapeutic journey demonstrates the bravery which accompanies vulnerability, and that is a joy to witness.
