Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? -Mary Oliver
A focused and collaborative relationship with a caring professional can be a life-changing experience. I help people increase freedom and joy and reduce sadness and stress. I use a client-centered and strengths based approach to help with a variety of concerns and issues.
Anxiety, Depression, and Insomnia About half my clients at any given time are struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, depression, or insomnia. Often, clients suffer from one or more at the same time. If you struggle to make friends, feel overwhelming sadness, or avoid social situations, you might benefit from therapy to address depression or anxiety.
Trouble sleeping? Click here to read an article I wrote from clients with 12 tips to help you sleep more soundly: How Are Your Sleep Habits? Tips to Get Better Sleep. Body Image and Health Behavior Choices I enjoy working with people who want to improve their health and wellness. I use a Health at Every Size approach to behavior change and body acceptance. Are you trying to remove your attention from what the scale says and focus on moving, eating mindfully, enjoying your food, and getting in touch with the signals your body tells you? Let's start where you are. I provide therapy and counseling services for adults with a variety of additional concerns, including:
eating and moving mindfully while increasing joy and pleasure (for all sizes and shapes)
life transitions, especially for young adults
counseling for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and non-binary folks
gender identity and gender expression
forming healthy relationships
