My Approach to Helping
Thank you for your interest in working with me. I know you have a lot of choices when it comes to your mental and physical health, so I deeply honor and value your taking the time to read about how I can help you. If this is your first time considering therapy you probably have a million questions, and I'm happy to answer any of them in a free consultation.
Whether you're in the midst of a crisis, transition or simply needing to heal an aspect of yourself or your life, you've come to the right place. My greatest passion is working with women of all ages through any context of life because these are the most opportune times to explore the self, and to grow as a human being. While there is no "right" time to begin this kind of work, there are times where jumping in can feel more necessary.
I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE ELOQUENTLY DESIGNED TO FEEL CONNECTED, ENERGIZED, STRONG AND FERTILE IN ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE. SOMETIMES MODERN LIVING CAN GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR NATURAL ARCHITECTURE, AND THIS IS WHEN REVISITING THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH BECOMES PARAMOUNT.
It's no secret that as a woman you are beautifully wired to nurture and care for others, but in the modern world this natural gift is often overextended at the expense of your own health. In my work I seek to help you re-align your mental and physical health into a state of balance and harmony, and this can be done holistically and naturally.
My style of therapy is integrative, interactive, proactive, and pragmatic. This means that we will work together to resolve deeper concerns and issues with your whole self in mind.
More Info About My Practice
I went the extra mile to become a holistic nutritionist so I could go above and beyond the limitations of traditional psychotherapy, and offer a more integrative approach. Physical discomfort and mood imbalances are symptoms that should be taken seriously, and they can often be treated at the same time. Current medicine and research are supporting the connection between mental health, nutrition, and gut health more than ever, and my approach unravels and weaves these variables resulting in authentic health and sustainable change.
I have set my private practice up in a way that offers flexibility including teletherapy, short-term and long-term treatment packages, and a variety of approaches that can be mixed and matched depending on your unique circumstances. In most cases insurance will cover a portion of the cost of your sessions, and I am happy to look into your plan for you to determine if reimbursement is possible.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
When you feel "off" you can trust that you're intuition is telling you that something needs to change or shift. I encourage you to not ignore the messages being sent, but to honor this gut instinct and internal wisdom as a communication that you need some extra support. I have found that the most opportune time to do the work of self-improvement is when there is a compelling reason to change. This is why I specialize in the transitional times of life including preparing for pregnancy, divorce, and menopause. These and other life phases can serve as catalysts for reaching our greatest human potential, and psychotherapy is the perfect vehicle to get there.
