YOU are unique. And so is your story. We all have context, stories that make our lives make sense. If you are reading this, your life is making much less sense to you than it once did. Sometimes we develop a system of coping tools to deal with the context of our lives. As our lives change our coping tools are no longer needed or no longer work. Most commonly occurring during life transitions, it can be incredibly lonely and disorienting! Unfortunately, most of us weren't given a sturdy emotional toolkit. That's where I come in! You can't know what you don't know. Have you ever tried to talk to an accountant about your taxes? Swahili, right? Taxes are scary! And, so are emotions when you aren't equipped with the toolkit. A lifetime (or even a short time) of trying to ignore your self and your emotions can create one incongruent mess. Luckily, getting back on track can happen. I'll walk the journey with you. Sometimes we need a guide, or an expert to lead us along the way.
Whether it's the ravages of an eating disorder, the panic of becoming a young adult, to a new mom, I'm here to hear your story. I'm here to help navigate a path. I'm here to help your voice be one that is heard.
 I have over ten years of professional experience treating eating disorders; as well as, my own personal experience that led me here. I truly believe if I can find recovery from the ravages of an eating disorder, you can too and would be honored to join you on your journey back to life.

I am eclectic in my therapeutic tools. First sessions follow a get to know you and your presenting problem. Second sessions get to know where you came from. From there we link those things together and get rolling. A lot of insight based and family systems work combined with a ton of emotional education makes up the bulk of my approach to therapy. Depending on the level of severity, if involving an eating disorder, nutritional referrals will be given and recommended. 
Many things make our practice unique. Unique to me is the use of horses as therapists! Through their natural communication, horses provide mirrors to our inner selves and give us the unique opportunity to learn about ourselves in a real time way without having a therapist follow you around!
Also, as part of the LifeWorks group, we offer yoga therapy which is an great addition to the therapeutic process in learning to regulate your physiological body!
