A Healthy Life Is Within Reach

My mission is to help advocate and support women who struggle with chronic physical health and psychological issues. I believe the mind and body are interconnected, and the more we can care for both parts, the healthier we can be. Sometimes the best way to do this is to find someone to walk beside you and give you tools, support, and guidance.

Self-care strategies

Set Boundaries

It's OK to say no. Always consider if you have the mental and physical resources to accept the task or request. Relationships can be challenging to navigate at times. Therapy can help provide interpersonal effectiveness skills to improve your ability to handle conflict with others and maintain stable relationships.

Sleep

Generally, we need about 7-9 hours of sleep a night. If we are running low on sleep, our immune systems are weakened and we are more vulnerable to illnesses. Having trouble sleeping? I can help!

Seek social support

Whether you need a hug from a friend or someone to listen to you, we are all hard-wired to seek out support during difficult times. It's OK to ask for help!

Be Mindful

Take a moment to observe your environment. Use all of your senses. Be present. Mindfulness is a great coping tool for reducing stress. If you would like to learn more coping strategies for managing stress and anxiety,  make an appointment! 

Eat

Humans are biologically drawn towards foods high in sugar and fat during times of stress.  We also turn to food when we are bored. Learn ways to decrease emotional eating, listen to your body's internal cues, and live a healthier lifestyle without feeling "ruled" by food. 

Snuggle with a pet

Pets can help us in so many ways. Occasionally there are German Shepard pups at the office to help reduce stress!
