A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You

Specializing in Yoga Psychology

Pronouns: She / Her / Hers

Through a unique combination of the ancient traditions of yoga philosophy and modern day applied psychology principles, I am able to provide you with an empathic and specialized counseling experience.

I have over 14 years of experience in working with clients in a variety of settings on concerns related to anxiety, depression, life transitions, self-esteem, and trauma.

As a cancer survivor, I have a deep understanding of how trauma changes your life and the ways you wish it wouldn't, and I can help you make the transition into healing.


As a Registered Yoga Teacher, I am passionate about sharing the gifts of yoga with my clients through Yoga Psychology. This is a unique process that focuses on integrating the psychological wisdoms of ancient yoga teachings with modern depth psychology principles for emotional, physical and spiritual health.


While my yoga training informs my therapeutic approach, this does not mean that you have to do yoga when you work with me. That is your choice to make as we work together to develop your goals.

*For couples counseling: I am an LGBTQIA ally and work with same-sex couples.​

It is important to first note that clients make the choice on when and how to incorporate yoga psychology into their counseling experience, and this is something we can discuss prior to making a decision.


I have been practicing yoga since 2001 and became certified to teach in 2012. I believe that yoga and counseling complement each other wonderfully, and I am excited to be able to incorporate this into the work that I do with my clients.


Yoga is an ancient healing practice that provides many benefits on the path to self-discovery. Yoga Psychology is a specific method that combines the ancient wisdom of the East with the modern depth psychology principles of the West. 


Here are some ways in which I can offer this beautiful practice to my clients:


  • Pranayama (breathing techniques)

  • Archetypal work 
  • Yoga sutras that apply to current emotional, physical, and mental well-being

  • Meditation techniques

  • Resources and recommended readings

  • Guided meditations to use at home

  • Specific physical postures related to therapy goals




A Mental Health Professional Here to Guide You
Pronouns: She / Her / Hers

I recently graduated from USF with a Masters in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling with a focus in Marriage and Family Counseling. Along with this focus, I have experience working with Grief and Trauma. These areas are my counseling passion. I have seen clients learn to adapt to the experience of immense grief and believe there is a way to live peacefully and joyfully despite tremendous adversity. 

I am currently pursuing certifications in Holistic Nutrition and Health and Wellness. I strongly believe that to address and concerns with mental health you have to address the whole person. That being said, I hope to soon be able to incorporate these certifications into my counseling practice. 

Counseling is a marathon, not a sprint, and I hope to be part of that journey for anyone who is willing and ready to do the work. We are all unique, which is why I believe that there are many ways to approach counseling. While I like to meet clients where they are mentally, spiritually, and emotionally, I will also push clients to explore themselves through mindfulness-based practices, nutrition and healthy lifestyle changes.
