Professional statement

Are you an adult who is having difficulty with life transitions and adjustments, symptoms of anxiety or depression, experiences of past trauma, dealing with complex family dynamics, or struggling with communication challenges? Are you needing someone to talk with, and willing to do the necessary therapeutic work to navigate life’s challenges to make changes in your life? Do you want support and guidance to improve your emotional health? Do you dream of living with more peace and ease? Do you want to live your life in a different and better way? If so, we might be a good fit!

In our work together, we can collaborate to reach your goals, communicate openly and honestly, and commit to the therapeutic process. We spark new ideas to make positive changes for healing.

Through my work in the mental health field and the yoga/wellness industry, my heart’s passion is to help guide clients to live more peaceful and joyful lives.

If this type of therapy sounds like a good fit for what you are looking for, I invite you to learn more about what my virtual, private practice can offer you by visiting my website. I have current daytime availability for virtual, self-pay clients.

Message to clients

My clients have said I am empathetic, compassionate, trustworthy, and understanding, and I offer a fresh perspective on challenges. Allowing all my clients to heal at their own pace, I believe in the power of our authentic therapeutic relationship.

I can be your sounding board, your listening ear, and your therapeutic partner in problem-solving to make your life better. Utilizing a safe and supportive approach that is led by you -- the client -- I offer suggestions and guidance, encouraging you to find the best-fit path for your journey.

My personal experience in holistic wellness and mind-body modalities for healing has led me towards guiding individuals to reach their full potential for optimal well-being through Psychotherapy and also with Emotional Wellness Yoga Instruction.

If this type of therapy sounds like a good fit for what you are looking for, please schedule a complimentary call!
