Love and accept your body as it is not, and find it easy to honor you health. Body dissatisfaction is unhealthy and communicated to us and internalized from a young age.

I have always had an interest in helping people. Through my work as a counselor, registered nurse and educator, I have had the opportunity to see significant improvements in a person’s life and well being.

I have been a psychotherapist/counselor for 9 years helping clients with chronic disease and chronic pain issues and the emotional healing needed to cope with daily life.
