I am mindfully oriented, interactive, relational, and attachment based. My therapeutic approach focuses on identifying and challenging current thinking patterns, assessing and exploring nervous system function, as well as exploring past familial and personal experiences to change lives from the inside out.
I remain present, grounded, and attuned in session; adapting services to meet the needs of my clients. I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. Over the years, I have completed additional training in various areas including extensive Eating Disorder training both individual and group therapy settings, following somatic treatment methods and Health At Every Size (HAES) Principles.
