I hold a Master's in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and an MBA from Lindenwood University.  My practice is grounded in Psychodynamic and somatic (Sensorimotor) psychotherapies.  I integrate supplemental theoretical interventions on a case-by-case basis; treatment is individualized and collaborative.  I work with trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, body image & body shame.  I am a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and a Certified Body Trust® Provider.

I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to explore what is holding them back from leading the life they desire; both personally and professionally.  

Sessions are conducted in person, over the phone, and via web video.

     I Believe...

  • what we struggle with provides insight and can help us grow

  • connection is key; strong relationships require effort from both parties

  • regularly engaging in pleasurable activities fosters joy and happiness

  • in nourishing mind, body, and soul

  • that self-compassion is vital to wellbeing

  • all bodies are good bodies
