My Approach to Helping

If you have lost your confidence in yourself, I am here to help. If you have goals set that you are not completing, I am here to help. If you lay awake at night trying to figure out how you'll do it tomorrow, I'm here to help. I have a strong passion for helping people overcome the obstacles that are standing in the way of living a meaningful life. I am a genuine and compassionate person and I will listen with an open mind to whatever your struggle is. Together we can explore what is holding you back and identify realistic ways to manage these difficulties.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in body mind connection and am dedicated to helping others discover how to become a whole being through self care in body and mind. My private office is located out of a personal training studio, but exercise participation is certainly not a requirement of treatment. Don't let the exercising atmosphere intimidate you, but if it is something you want to be inspired to initiate, I can help with that too.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am very skilled and experienced at working with people to overcome chronic pain, obesity, diabetes, and similar physical ailments. I am also an expert at helping people become more aware of their physiological response to stress and depression. This is very important in healing. The awareness of one's body can help to identify needs and plan for healthy reactions. Being able to practice self care and self compassion as you push through life's overwhelming struggles will help you to live a more meaningful life.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Every therapist practices differently and each person seeking therapy has varying needs. If your previous therapy experience was not one you wish to repeat, I am happy to listen to what you did not like about it, and tailor my own practice to fit your needs. The therapeutic relationship must be one in which you feel comfortable to explore the deeper issues and simultaneously trust that I am here to listen, genuinely care about you, and guide you to a place a peace.
