My approach:

Our work together is designed to cultivate greater contentment in your life. We all experience challenge, often around our relationships, our work, our health, and caring for our children and loved ones. These experiences can provoke anxiety, fear and uncertainty. Having a safe, nonjudgmental space in which to work through these moments can be profoundly helpful and can often facilitate swifter resolution. As a NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) Certified Personal Trainer, I also consider physical health in relation to emotional wellbeing, and recognize that they are inextricably linked. My perspective is grounded in a deep respect for the courage and wisdom inherent in the choice to engage in talk therapy, and the importance of the therapeutic relationship.

Common issues:

None of us are exempt from the challenges life can present. Having a safe, nonjudgmental space to move through these challenges can not only lessen the emotional burden, but also offer swifter, deeper and more lasting healing. Some of the most common issues that bring people into counseling include the following:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Stress Management & Reduction

  • (Co)parenting

  • Relationship issues

  • Divorce

  • Career changes

  • Work/Life “Balance”

  • Substance abuse

  • Self Esteem

  • Grief & loss

  • Infertility

  • Prenatal and postpartum mental health

  • Sexuality & gender

  • Body image

Please feel free to connect with me directly via phone or email to explore working together, and for rate information. I look forward to hearing from you.

Women’s wellbeing:

Generally, women are culturally and physiologically predisposed to be caregivers. We are mothers, of course, and also disproportionately serve in the capacities of early caregivers, teachers, social workers, nurses, school aides, therapists of various kinds and on and on.

We are also inclined to diminish and disregard our own needs and welfare. The results of this neglect can have devastating consequences for ourselves, and by virtue of all those who entrust their care to us, many others as well.

Much of my writing centers around the proliferation of evidence-based resources that enable women to take better care of themselves, and the dissemination of compelling reasons why doing so is not optional, but essential.
