My goal is to help people cultivate a healthy relationship with themselves, their bodies, and food. So many of us are suffering because we unconsciously hold on to limiting beliefs and maladaptive coping behaviors that have helped us to survive in the past, but no longer serves us in the present. We’re scared of our own shadow and conceal parts of us that we have been taught to dislike — the parts that make us human. This causes our actions to be led by fear, doubt, and shame rather than freedom, confidence, and love.
You have the power to be the person who takes up space confidently, to honor your needs, to provide the nutrients your body is asking for, and live from a place of freedom and unconditional love. I believe that full recovery is possible. It would be my honor to walk with you on the journey to full recovery.
I received a Bachelors degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 2005, followed by a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University in 2019. For the last 4 years, I have worked with adolescents and young adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, self harm, negative body image, and eating disorders.
My favorite self-care activities and hobbies include: Practicing yoga, meditating, hiking, reading, finding new cooking recipes, and spending time with my family.
