Do you go through your days feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or alone?  Do you have the feeling of 'not good enough'.  You want to believe things can get better but you're not sure how or even where to start.    

Perhaps you are in a relationship where there is no understanding. A loving tone has turned cold and distant. One person lashes out and the other retreats. You want to learn to communicate.     


You have come to the right place!  Deciding to seek therapy can be scary.  You want a therapist that you can feel free to be yourself with.  One that listens and validates you but also challenges you a bit.  You want to be heard but you also want to learn and grow. You are ready for things to be different. Check out my specialties to see how I can help you on your whole health journey.

A Holistic Approach to Therapy

Emotional Health

Taking care of our emotional health is key for growth.  Sometimes we don't know what we feel and sometimes we are overtaken by our feelings.  You need to talk about these things with a therapist you can connect with and learn coping skills- actual tools you can use in times of stress.   

Physical Health

Our bodies are unique and will not always respond to a cookie-cutter kind of diet and exercise program.  Many women have a distorted view of their body and or a difficult relationship with food.  Wouldn't it be freeing to learn how to work with your body and achieve whole body wellness? 

Spiritual Health

Having a sense of purpose and meaning in life cannot be underestimated.  Research shows that a strong sense of spirituality is associated with better overall health.  Cultivating compassion, love, and forgiveness can lead you to live a life that aligns with your values.
