Life’s twists and turns can lead to feeling stuck on a path that doesn’t feel good. Maybe you are struggling with a particular problem or just have the sense that you’re not quite moving through your life the way you’d really like to. I help people who want to feel more at ease with themselves and find more joy and fulfillment in their relationships and pursuits.

I combine “talk therapy” with holistic approaches including mindfulness, movement and creative arts along with contemporary findings from neuroscience to help my clients make profound changes and live with more peace, purpose, and a sense of feeling truly like who they really are.

I have experience and a special interest in working with adult and young women, particularly on issues of navigating life transitions, reducing anxiety and depression, resolving trauma, developing creativity, improving body image, coping with chronic pain or illness, and sustaining substance abuse recovery as well as issues related to supporting pregnancy, postpartum and motherhood.

I also offer support and consultation to therapists, using a holistic approach to help professionals do work they love without burning out.
