My philosophy is simple, I believe that you are the expert at your own life, even if you don't feel it now. I believe that we all can find ourselves feeling stuck, at our wits end or lost at different points in our lives. Life can be so difficult and hectic sometimes that we forget to take those moments to take care of ourselves.
Counseling can provide the support and guidance needed to navigate those difficult times, restoring a sense of balance to your life. Because of the complexity of each individual, I tailor my counseling approach to meet the needs of each individual I meet.
My extensive training and experience are here to assist you in finding strength as you journey through the many challenges and transitions life may bring.
I provide a judgement-free, confidential space in which to allow you to explore yourself. My goal is to help you uncover ways in which to live your life to the fullest according to your personal values and beliefs.
I focus on the whole person, not just one aspect of mental health. I allow my clients to guide me on their journey through counseling, providing support, expertise and guidance along the way.

Yoga is often thought of in our society as simply physical fitness. However, at Mind+Body Connection, yoga is so much more! For me,yoga is all about using movement to calm the body. Once the body is calm, then the breath can be used to calm the mind. When the mind is calm, then you open yourself to spiritual growth. This holistic growth can open your life to more fulfillment and joy overall.
If you're feeling in a space where you're not quite ready to talk about the challenges you face in life. Or maybe you've talked enough and just aren't feeling the growth you were looking for. Yoga can actually be used instead of counseling to help you release and unlock some of the difficulties you've been holding on to.
Yoga can be used as a supplement to counseling, to help you continue to strengthen and support yourself from the inside out. We can incorporate gentle movement, meditation or other mindfulness practices into your counseling sessions or you can come to a yoga workshop in between sessions.
