I am comfortable sitting with you in your vulnerability and holding space for you to discover what truly brings joy and creates fulfillment. At times, we live from narratives that are not our own. I will assist you in exploring those narratives, redefining them, and making change.
I offer traditional talk therapy integrated with yoga, mindfulness, and practical coping skills. Many of us live in our heads with constant running to do lists, expectations, and fast paced lives. We try to think our way through our feelings. We try to shift life circumstances through thought and logic. Therapeutic yoga integrated with talk therapy allows us to explore what is underneath the thoughts. When we find places of tension, pain, or discomfort we gently observe and remain present. For some, this is the part that becomes uncomfortable. Being present is hard and it is where we heal.
A typical therapeutic yoga session may involve talking, breathing techniques, physical movement, guided meditation, and visualization. We will work to notice how your thoughts influence your body. We will explore where emotions are stored in your body and what to do with that knowledge. Absolutely no previous yoga experience is required. All you need is a willingness to explore.
I Specialize In:
Tailored To Your Needs
I truly believe that in order to heal and make progress toward wellness you must feel connected and safe within the therapeutic relationship. I strive to meet you where you are and create a safe non-judgmental space for exploration and healing. I pull from a variety of therapeutic modalities. I will work to integrate cognitive behavioral approaches with existential theory, practical coping, goal setting and achievement, and mindfulness.

I will help you connect to your truth and inner guidance.Continue Reading
