Practice Description: I work with individuals and couples struggling with body image, food, identity, and relationship issues. I am passionate about working with men, women, teens, and couples to help them find greater ease in their lives and relationships and particularly enjoy working on issues including relationships, transition, disordered eating, addiction, and spirituality.

Relationship Work (Coaching, therapy, or couples counseling):
I offer coaching and counseling for couples and individuals in all stages of relationship from dating to divorce. Depending on your particular needsI will work with you to develop a comprehensive and multidimensional plan to address all aspects of your relationship life.

Disordered Eating:
With a background working in residential treatment for eating disorders, and outpatient settings for addiction, I have worked with many people going through the recovery journey. I know the hard work and courage this takes and I would feel honored to support and witness your growth in this process.

My approach:
My approach is subtle yet direct and integrates mindfulness, practices, somatic techniques, and heart-centered awareness to help create balance and transformation. I have a broad range of experience working with teens, adults and couples in private practice, and in residential and outpatient settings treating addiction and eating disorders. I see trust and an open heart as the basis for the work of relationships and embody this in my work.

I know how much courage it takes to face ourselves and one another in relationship, and I hold therapy sessions with gentleness, reverence, and respect for the people in the room. I also know that your time is valuable, and I honor that with a straightforward approach. I see relationships as mirrors for the best and worst aspects of ourselves, and believe that by becoming conscious of these parts in relationships, individuals can become their best selves. I can help you cultivate intimacy, trust, vulnerability, and self-expression inside the therapy room and out. Above all, I hold sessions with a sense of commitment, hope, and trust in the ability every person holds to transform and grow. I am committed to supporting that process of profound growth and change in those I work with.
