Private Mind-Body Psychotherapy Sessions

These limited availability, 1:1 sessions encompass the 5 Pillars of Mind-Body Health . We begin with psychotherapy to help you uncover and overcome areas that cause you stress and pain. Mindfulness is taught and practiced throughout to manage the feelings that arise, make meaning, and help you rise resilient. We incorporate nutrition, exercise and lifestyle throughout and customize these sessions to be more or less of whatever feels right for you. Enjoy these online sessions from the comfort of your own home or private space.

Mind-Body Retreats

Mind-Body Intensive Retreats

A personal retreat custom designed specific to your needs for mind-body healing, self-compassion, personal development and mindfulness. In these intensive retreats, we create space for topics that are hard and even painful. We use therapeutic modalities in combination with mindfulness to walk beside you as you journey into the dark places that have been holding you back. We work with you to deeply and compassionately to care for these areas so that you can begin to heal, rise resilient and move forward with intention.
