I believe everyone is an individual and while "labels" give us a starting point, my most important goal is to treat you as a unique individual rather than by your label. Most of my clients know that I never get too hung up on the diagnosis itself. Instead we try to get to the crux of the deeper layers of the challenge during our time together. I have worked with people dealing with a wide rage of issues over the years from: chronic health challenges such as: Autoimmune Diseases, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encphalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia, Interstitial Cystitis, Pelvic Pain (Vulvodynia and Unspecified), Chronic Pain, Mood Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Insomnia, Weight Loss/Gain, Sugar "Addicts," Disordered Eating (sometimes that might not even be recognized), Lyme disease, POTS, and non-life threatening Eating Disorders*
I hold the space for everyone to access complete healing but I also work with you to learn to find joy in the healing ride which is very rarely linear. I will support you but also gently encourage you. I am not a coach who is here to tell you to give up medicine and do everything "natural." Instead, I will challenge you to look at everything that is going on in your life from your stress to your food plate to the common patterns and deep seated limiting beliefs in your life. Most importantly, I help you find balance so that you are able to use ALL of the many amazing resources out there for your journey. I work with you to break rigid rules that might be caging you in and encourage you to start to transcend self-imposed barriers. I have worked with clients from a variety of cultures, ages and backgrounds. I meet each person where they're at and partner with them to lay out an unique tailored plan. There is no one size fits all solution. You are the captain of your own journey; I am here to support and guide you while reminding you of life's limitless potential.
*please note: I am not a medical doctor and while I am studying to become a Licensed Therapist, I am not currently a Licensed Therapist. I do not treat or diagnose illness. Depending on the situation, I may ask you to be under the care of a Therapist and/or Psychiatrist/Medical Doctor to supplement your healing. I also at times work in conjunction with a client's physician, normally from referral, to ensure the best care!
