My Approach to Helping

My therapeutic approach is integrative and holistic pulling from my background as a humanistic psychotherapist and Registered Dietitian. I believe that individuals and families are innately able to heal, have many assets, and are the experts of their own experiences. I build on this belief to help clients uncover their unique strengths and resiliency to work towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Compassionate, empathic, and encouraging, I strive to create a welcoming space, where you can explore your individuality, process your unique challenges, and develop new skills and insights. Our work together is tailored to you, often drawing from strengths-based, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based modalities.

Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder, experiencing depression or anxiety, caught in addiction, or navigating a life transition, I will walk by you in your journey of growth and healing.
