Are you having trouble finding balance? Do you feel stressed, overwhelmed, or anxious? If so, I have the tools to help.
I am passionate about my role as a clinical health psychologist. Each person who walks into my office has a toolbox. Some people have a toolbox that is overflowing with tools, but they aren't sure which ones to use when. Other people walk into my office with a sparsely stocked toolbox, through no fault of their own. My goal is to help foster emotional and physical well-being and to walk along side my clients while providing them with the tools they need to live their best life.
I enjoy working with people who are motivated, reflective, and interested in learning more about themselves. You are not expected to know what your "problem" or diagnosis is at your arrival. And you don't need to know how to solve your problems! I DO anticipate that if you are here for therapy, that you are willing to dig deep and lean in to the healing process.
I am also passionate about working with professionals,
health-care workers, healers, therapists, and highly-sensitive people ("empaths") who struggle with their gift.

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.
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!
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!
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.
