What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

My care is rooted in realness, shaped by core values—advocacy, authenticity, & unconditional positive regard. I've lived through anxiety, divorce, low self-esteem, dieting woes & grappling with chronic invisible illness. These experiences create a life-trained lens, beyond the books. When I say "I get it" I mean it . Authentic care for REAL change! Although I tend to keep a waitlist, I am always accepting self referrals. To begin please self schedule a FREE Discovery Consult (phone or video) directly from my website. To schedule you will be asked to fill out a brief survey to help us prepare. During the consult we will mutually agree if my practice is a great match and discuss next steps.
