Anxiety

Anxiety has unfortunately become a common term in our busy, non-stop, multi-tasking culture. Anxiety is a normal and important part of the human experience, but it can be debilitating when levels do not cease. When symptoms of anxiety are disrupting your relationships and daily functioning it is important to get help.

chronic pain/sleep management

When you have chronic pain or insomnia, you want answers. I have worked with many individuals struggling with chronic pain that has been misdiagnosed and misunderstood by many medical doctors. In my practice I help individuals learn how to relate to their pain in a new way while increasing self-trust through self-compassion practices.

Eating disorders

When it comes to eating disorders, it is essential to understand function and  purpose. I will help you learn and implement coping skills and self-awareness practices to decrease unwanted behaviors while increasing positive body image.  Together we will explore your relationship to your body, food, and exercise. It is never too late to break the cycle.

 


An East & West Approach

I am trained in modern modalities including DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Psychodynamic, and Attachment- Focused Therapy. These theories are most successful when supported by Eastern practices including meditation, body awareness, and safety training. I am dedicated to helping my clients understand their unique neuroception of threat, in other words feeling safe and at home in their bodies while learning to change and take control of their thoughts and feelings.
