My Approach to Helping

Most likely you have been through a lot; or maybe what is going on now is so overwhelming to you have no idea where to start to pick up the pieces. There is no problem too big or small that can not be addressed in counseling.

As both a dietitian and therapist I look at a person as a whole top to bottom and how lifestyle changes can improve both your mental and physical health.
