My practice is dedicated to working with individuals who are encountering challenges in their lives and are seeking support, understanding, and new strategies for coping to move forward, heal, and thrive. These personal challenges may include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) related to current or past experience of violence and abuse; as well as anxiety and depression associated with chronic, acute, and terminal illness particularly for those living with autoimmune disorders (i.e. lupus, Sjogren's, thyroid disorder, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's/IBD, fibromyalgia, food allergy/intolerance), IBS, SIBO, Ehler-Danlos, HIV, cancer, and more unusual but potentially life-altering diagnoses such as POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia) and MGUS (monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance). My practice is open and inclusive for those struggling with substance and food addiction, LGBTQIAP-specific issues, and grief and bereavement. Care is provided in a safe, supportive, and compassionate environment.
For individuals who are facing a new diagnosis or stage of treatment, I am also available to provide phone, Skype, or on-site support; as well as to help you to coordinate with your doctor or treatment team.
I conduct workshops and public speaking events in corporate and non-profit settings on trauma-informed care with a particular emphasis on educating in the areas of vicarious/secondary trauma and self-care for providers and organizations directly and indirectly exposed to traumatized populations.
Additionally, I offer holistic nutrition and wellness coaching and workshops to individuals, couples, families, and organizations seeking to increase and support overall health by creating new relationships to food, exercise, and the mind/body.
