About My Clients

Are you feeling low on energy and lacking the motivation to do anything? Do you feel tense or “on edge” throughout your day? Maybe you are feeling hopeless and sad but have a hard time expressing the cause. Do you feel disconnected in your relationships? These problems don’t have to follow you forever. I support my clients in developing improved relationships in their lives, positive mindsets, increased motivation and more.

My Background and Approach

In my practice, I focus on treating the whole person- not just their symptoms. Research has shown that the mind, body, and spirit are all connected together. This is why I offer, “Walk and Talk” therapy and use an integrative approach with my clients connecting "whole body" wellness and mental health together. I use a client-centered approach, in which the client is the expert in their life, combined with CBT and narrative therapy. There are obstacles and hurdles that we overcome at every stage in our lives and my goal is to support my clients in their own self growth and discovery to make positive changes. I believe that through our journey together, you will find the necessary strength and tools within yourself to live your best life. So, call now and begin your journey.
