Adolescents & Young Adults life transitions
I enjoy supporting adolescent and young adult clients in all of life’s internal and external transitions. Whether it is forging a new career path, entering a new phase in your educational journey, or fostering healthy relationships with yourself and others – change can be intimidating.
Perfectionism, social pressure, arbitrary standards of self-expression, and shame can simultaneously arise and feel depleting. These feelings do not need to be in control of your life, together let’s uncover the version of yourself that feels most organic to you. There is liberation in your authenticity.
Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating, Recovery Maintenance
One of my passions is supporting clients experiencing eating disorders, disordered eating, and eating disorder recovery maintenance. I’m a member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) Heartland Chapter. Oftentimes, there can be so much stigma and misinformation surrounding eating disorders that you may feel like suffering in silence is your only option.
There may be disordered thoughts that tell you that you are not deserving of healing, love, or happiness – you are deserving of all those things and more! There is space here for you to discover new coping strategies if you feel stuck in an unsustainable pattern of thoughts and behaviors. Together we can unlearn these patterns and move forward.
Our lived experiences can shape the way in which we take information moving forward. Let’s explore these experiences together to see how healing is possible.
In my free time, I am a Yoga Instructor at Core Power Yoga, I love to spend time with family and friends. I’m currently attempting to teach myself how to sew so I can explore bold fashion creations at home!
