About me

With over twenty years of experience in the mental health field, I understand the connection between body, mind, and spirit and the importance of treating the whole person. As a licensed psychotherapist, I see adolescents and adults struggling with life changes, stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, self-esteem and confidence, attention and focus, grief, body image, relationships, and more. My philosophy is rooted in a collaborative, somatic approach to healing, creating a safe space for my clients to engage with the challenging and transformative work of attuning to their own inner guidance and healing old wounds in order to be their best self.

As a mindfulness-based eco-therapist, my practice specializes in using nature as a healing tool to treat anxiety, panic, depression, body image, struggles with relationships, and stress management. My approach is collaborative, strengths-based, and solution focused with the goal of restoring balance and harmony in all areas of one's life. The therapeutic models that I draw from include strengths-based, client centered, Cognitive behavioral Therapy (CBT), attachment theory, solution-focused, trauma informed, mind/body connection and embodiment practices like yoga, dance, and the arts.
