UPDATE June 10, 2021 related to COVID-19. Currently, masks are not required for folks who have been fully vaccinated. If you have not received a vaccination, we ask that you still wear a mask and practice social distancing guidelines, however masks are not mandated. Insurance companies are still allowing Teletherapy visits. Make sure you check with your insurance that this benefit is covered. Understand that with telehealth there are some limits to confidentiality depending on where you are during the call and who is listening. Also, make sure you have a solid internet connection. If you are symptomatic or feeling ill please do not come in. Please be aware that if you are not feeling like you can keep yourself safe or are struggling with any suicidal thoughts, please get yourself to a local ER.
I’m a licensed social worker, but I am also a mom, a wife, and a friend. I believe in taking a whole body approach to your mental health through diet,exercise, and coping skills. My focus is to take the stigma and mystery out of how our brains work by teaching practical, evidence-based skills to improve daily living.
I'm not here to re-create the wheel so I will be sharing some of my favorite links, recipes, research, and tips to increase your awareness and motivate change.
