I have over 25 years of experience in private practice & have helped countless people with Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Self Esteem, Weight Loss/body dysmorphia, etc. I'm also a Certified AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) Coach & have helped dozens of people like myself put multiple autoimmune diseases (Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, POTS, & multiple neuropathies) into remission. Using my approach I have been in remission & flare-free for over 4 years now. I have found that once we do the healing work & equip you with the toolbox of coping skills, self-care & if applicable, foods your body tolerates, we can stay healthy & flare-free despite physical &/or emotional stress, as long as we continue to practice the tools that keep us in the healthy zone. They will be unique & different for each person. There's a relationship between our mind, body, & gut, & I can help you bridge that gap. I love to use my training & my life experiences to help others improve their life, health & level up in their life overall, stepping into their highest level of self, mind, body/health & spirit. I'm celebrating 30 years together with my husband on 10/4/21, so I bring a lot of relationship experience to the table as well & love to help people enrich their relationships & communication skills, be it with their partner, children, friends or a challenging boss or co-worker.
I am very client-based & like to hit the ground running. We will not spend the first session going through tons of paperwork & policies, we will dive right in. I'm often called the "Real Therapist" in my community of professionals because my clients & colleagues always know they are getting the real, raw truth from me. I will cut through the weeds that you've spent too much time getting lost in & help you get to the root of the problem & get things done & with actionable steps & results.
You can expect to dive right in & walk away with some clarity & actionable steps to take regarding your situation. I am very results-driven & action-based while also allowing the client to lead the direction of therapy. I am candid, open & real. I very easily build rapport, so no awkward first visits. My clients typically walk away from a first session feeling like we've known each other for quite some time. This helps us make progress quickly.
A traumatic childhood inspired me to be a therapist. Life's presented me many opportunities to use in my practice; having had 2 miscarriages, a stillborn son @ term, the experience of adopting a son from Russia who has sensory issues & Aspbergers. I've lost 170 lbs by healthy eating/exercise & maintained that weight loss for 8 years, I was shortly thereafter diagnosed w/ 6 autoimmune diseases I've put into remission. My life purpose is to help others conquer their issues & live their best life.
