My journey into wellness and spirituality began fourteen years ago when I decided to seek therapy for myself.
The process helped me discover my path and recognize any negative behavioral patterns that were a hindrance to my personal growth.
I gained deep insight into how much support and behavioral/thought reconditioning I actually needed, but it wasn't until years later when I discovered the essential missing piece that changed everything: creating secure attachment. I believe the root of our issues lie in our attachment imprinting, and through this lens one's world can truly change.

I am very passionate about the mind-body approach and more progessive techniques. I have received specialized training in EMDR, somatics, and grief. While newer to my skill set, I am also training in the highly effective DBT under my supervisor, Cheryl Tarnofsky.
I offer a free phone consultation to see if we are the right fit.
You can book a time to chat with me below. I look forward to hearing from you.
