What To Expect

I am able to provide both short-term therapy such as solution-focused treatment, crisis counseling or coaching as well as long-term psychotherapy that consists of weekly standing appointments to address longstanding behavior patterns, dynamics, conflicts and obstacles that interfere with leading a vital and fulfilling life. I am motivated to help my more focused and motivated clients achieve their goals as quickly as possible. Some individuals have challenges that may require a a longer course of treatment. An in-person consultation is the best way to determine what type of therapy would work best for your individual needs.

More About My Approach

As a licensed Psychotherapist + Coach working with individuals in a variety of professional, entrepreneurial and executive positions including entertainment, performance and wellness, I strive to help my clients create work and life balance, manage stress and difficult decisions, enjoy healthier relationships and find clarity of purpose in their lives. Many successful, high-achieving clients also struggle with anxiety, depression, relationships, self-esteem, eating disorders, addiction problems and an inability to reach their potential. Working with a Therapist or Coach can help with many of these difficulties. An additional focus and area of expertise in my work is helping clients who struggle with symptoms related to developmental trauma, attachment difficulties and PTSD. I've had great success using EMDR and other somatic therapies for symptom relief and trauma resolution.  I enjoy incorporating a variety of modalities into my private practice, including relaxation and breathing techniques, guided imagery and yoga philosophy along with traditional treatment approaches such psychodynamic and interpersonal psychotherapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy or CBT, DBT therapy skills, Mindfulness and EMDR therapy. As clinician with an integrative philosophy, I believe that sound emotional well-being is strongly influenced by healthy relationships, nutrition, exercise, sleep, creative outlets, thought patterns, self-care, spirituality and a healthy balance of work and play. 

As a former Miss USA, I am someone who understands the unique challenges, demands and struggles of celebrities and talented individuals and therefore have a special interest in celebrity mental health. My own personal life experiences and unique training enables me to provide the mentoring, support and guidance that high-profile clients benefit from the most. I engage clients with collaboration, insight, curiosity, sensitivity, solution and change-oriented approaches and sometimes a healthy dose of humor.  I also welcome individuals who could simply benefit from ongoing support or mentoring. 

I enjoy blogging and providing relevant, helpful emotional, physical and mental health information in an effort to reach those who might not otherwise have access to psychological help, counseling or therapy. As a registered yoga therapist RYT 200 + 500 level, I enjoy writing about whatever I may stumble upon that is yoga, meditation and mindfulness related.
