By embracing all aspects of yourself , you can discover the power of self-compassion to create unity in spirit, peace of mind and rejuvenated energy.
Within self-compassion lies the solution to balancing holistic health with the demands of our busy lives.
I'm so glad you're here. I am sure there is a reason we are crossing paths because all things align for a purpose.
Because I believe that we all need and deserve to feel at peace with our challenges, struggles and limitations, because I believe that self-compassion is the answer to restoring joy and fulfillment, I dedicate myself to my work as a psychotherapist.
So many of us have aspects of the self that we view as limitations, unacceptable parts of ourselves that seem impossible to "fix". Whether it be a mental health problem, our body images, eating disorders or trauma, there are times in our lives that these can feel profoundly disempowering.
I get it. I have lived with bipolar and ocd since childhood. I have experienced trauma and a life story that was complex and chaotic. I have dealt with eating disorders and a hateful body image. There have been times in my life that these experiences seemed like barriers to fulfillment and success. Today I know different.
I have discovered that our most difficult challenges and most complex stories can be assets in our healing They can hold the potential to create our greatest joy, happiness and fulfillment.
Within our journey together, we will navigate through challenges that have become areas of pain, holding you back from the life you deserve to live.

EMDR is a life changing therapy that is unmatched by any other method.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Essentially, this method engages both neurological science with psychotherapy in order to create massive change in how we feel about and view negative life experiences.
EMDR was initially used to help people reclaim freedom over their lives after extreme trauma, such as front-line combat. However, it was soon discovered how this therapy could be used to address a multitude of other concerns and challenges beyond extreme trauma, including upsetting life events that seem to stick with us, emotional distress related to OCD, coping with chronic pain, recovering from addiction and more.
However, EMDR isn't for everyone. If you're interested in exploring this for your own healing, we would first engage in psychotherapy to see if this would be helpful to you.
Ayurveda is an ancient science for wellbeing and the sister-science of Yoga. Ayurvedic nutrition is as much about the mind as it is about what we eat.
How we think about ourselves and our choices impacts our digestion and overall well-being. While clinical nutrition believes that digestion begins in the mouth, Ayurvedic Nutrition believes it begins in the mind.
Anxiety about our food choices interrupts digestion and can cause many problems including GI disorders, weight gain and more.
Ayurvedic Nutrition will help you learn how to eat in alignment with your specific body type (dosha) that will help you achieve your goals. It can also me included in psychotherapy as part of a holistic journey to mental health healing.
As an intuitive, I frequently bring energy insight and healing into sessions if it resonates with you.
I practice energy insight through tuning into the chakra system and giving you the images, symbols and messages that come through.
Following this insight we explore various ways of healing, both through our work together and practices to be carried out at home.
The goal of my work is to empower women to engage in their personal energy and create healing within their own lives, therefore, a large part of energy work is education, self study and practice.
Through this, incredible healing can occur.
