There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
– Dalai Lama
COVID-19 Update: I am taking new clients via Teletherapy and in-person!
Welcome! I help people of all shapes, sizes, and identities live happy, connected, empowered, and embodied lives. I can help you get grounded in who you are, reconnect with yourself, and live fully and powerfully from a place of wisdom and inner freedom. Say yes to the things you want in your life, and no to the things that don’t serve you! I offer a deeper approach, because when you know who you are deep down, the scary things you’ve been avoiding become the fuel for a life of growth, adventure, and love. The things that matter most in your life become doable and real. This is not your run-of-the-mill counseling. This is Soul Work.
I use art therapy, dream work, journaling, active imagination, EMDR, mindfulness and meditation to get under the surface, and help you access with your own deep wisdom for healing and growth. This process is transformative and liberating – you can create a life you love in the skin you’re in!
Check out these links to learn more about my approach to counseling, and how I work with body shame and eating disorders, grief, and trauma. I would love to connect with you, and see if I might be a good fit for you. Reach out today! I look forward to meeting you.
