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 in their lives and relationships. 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 social or other anxiety, perfectionism, depression, or insomnia. If you struggle to make friends, feel overwhelming sadness, or avoid social situations, you might benefit from therapy to address depression or anxiety.

Body Image and Intuitive Eating From the perspective of radical acceptance, I enjoy working with people who want support with body acceptance, intuitive eating, and living in a world with loads of size bias. I use a Health at Every Size approach to any behavior change you might want, if any, 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? Or need help with the acceptance part and want support to get by in our world that is so focused on young, thin, abled, light skinned bodies? Unbiased therapy rooted in social justice and acceptance is one option to receive that support. I also provide therapy and counseling services for adults with a variety of additional circumstances, including:
non-judgmental counseling for LGBTQIA folks and those in open relationships
forming healthy relationships
