An integrated mental and health behavior specialist committed to helping you create your best self.
I was first drawn to health and wellness shortly after my mother died...she was only 40 years old. Needless to say, and at 19 years old, the loss took its toll on both my mental and physical wellness. Fortunately, mentors throughout my academic career fostered my interest in health behavior by teaching me that true happiness, performance and well-being takes a multi-faceted approach, and a lot of support. Now, as a Marriage & Family Therapist, specializing in health behavior, performance and overall well-being, my goal is to assist you in developing the skillset needed to live your best and healthiest life while providing you with the support you deserve along the way.
