My Approach to Helping

Is your relationship with yourself and others thrown off balance by unresolved fears, shame, or guilt? Do thoughts consume you and pull you into familiar dark places that you struggle to be free of? How about your relationship with food and your body? Is body image distress getting you down and interfering with living, or are you living in a body that is incongruent with your identity? Do you wish to communicate your needs more easily and have the self-confidence to set boundaries? Do you find yourself stuck at the threshold of a major life transition or find yourself shrinking instead of expanding as you move closer to or into elder-hood?

You are not alone and I am here to help. I welcome you to embark on a journey into yourself where you may discover abandoned and rejected parts and a wellspring of insight and self-compassion for your most difficult challenges, along with an opportunity to live as your most authentic Self. I am of the mind that the only way out is in. Lets dive in together.

Reaching out is the first step in this journey and I empathize with how uncomfortable it can be. Please call or email to set up a free consultation. You'll quickly realize that the engaging, warm and nurturing environment I provide will allow you to safely express and explore your thoughts, emotions, and internalized beliefs. I look forward to hearing from you.
