Due to COVID-19 I will be seeing people via HIPPA secure Televideo
For now I have moved all appointments for the next 2 weeks to televideo. If you log into your portal you should see your new “location” as video. Your reminder for next week’s appointment will include a link to the video “room”. There is no special software needed, it is all part of your current client portal.
Telehealth sessions are currently part of your client portal. You do not need any special software but will need to download the application prior to our session. The information needed to download the application will come with your private video link to the “room”. Just a computer or phone with a camera.
Your reminder will include the “room” link and I will contact you via this link when it is time for our session.
If you do not have a computer or phone with video capabilities please let me know and we will figure out how to meet for your scheduled session. I will call you from the “room” using this streaming service and we will have our session from the comforts of our own spaces. This helps make sure we are caring for our neighbors and those who may be at high risk for complications of COVID-19.
Resources and Continuing to Be Social
For many it is a difficult time. Please make sure you are getting enough “social time” through other avenues like technology, getting outside or in the sun daily, getting enough sleep, but not too much, are getting daily movement in, and are working to eat well.
It is also helpful to set up a routine for yourself. Routines help us feel safe.
On the resources page, you will find my Spotify playlists, Pinterest boards, and YouTube channel where you will find a number of videos to help remind you of your therapy exercises and skills and keep you working toward healthy coping when we are not together in the treatment room. I also have links to the videos and meditation pages above as well.
I know this is difficult and I am grateful you are willing to work through this time with me. I will do my best to make sure I am ready, technology is running smoothly, and we have a great session even though we are miles apart. I conduct a number of sessions via telehealth already, but this will be the first time all my sessions are on video. I am learning alongside you during this time. I am glad technology allows us to continue support during this uncertainty.
All Doing Our Part
By slowing the transmission we help our community, especially our health care workers, stay on top of helping and we increase the supplies and services for those most in need. I know this is a very hard time for many of us and we are all working to remain focused on taking care of ourselves and our neighbors. By doing our individual part we help our community be stronger and more resilient to the stressors of this virus and all the surround chaos we are experiencing.
Please remember to practice good hygiene and wash your hands … A LOT!!! The tricky thing about COVID-19 is that the incubation period is 2-14 days; people can be infective and contagious before they even show symptoms. Thus, the broad spectrum recommendations for social distancing and wide spread closures in order to attempt to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus.

Health From the Inside Out ~ Behavior. Body. Balance.
Studio B is coming along! We are still working on construction through COVID-19 and still have our eye on the prize of opening this summer. Please continue to follow us on social media to see the updates and photos as the construction continues.
This move allows me to:
- Hire an administrative assistant. Much needed! This will help me prioritize clinical needs and messages to allow me to respond more effectively.
- Bring on more therapists who can take insurances. A big need in our community
- Work directly with personal trainers and nutrition experts to help manage mental and physical health goals non-medically with a whole person health-focus.
- Add programs and services such as health, diet, and exercise coaching, as well as total health transformation packages.
- Provide a state-of-the-art telemedicine space that will host sessions with less dropped/frozen screens during our online calls.AND … We’ll see what else we can dream up to support you on your journey to better health! Taking over my own space allows me the freedom and creativity to create programs you ask for.
The new office will be located temporarily at 1305 Escalante Dr #205 / Durango, while our unit (right next door) is being completed. We estimate the new clinic opening in June 2020. ~ Stay tuned for updates on the project
What I do …
I blend psychology with physical exercises for whole-person healing and utilize non-medical (Somatic, Behavioral, Cognitive, Social) approaches to mental and physical health issues. My goal for you is to feel more grounded, empowered and inspired to live your life motivated and balanced everyday.
Often, people are looking to make a change, need help adhering to a new, healthier behavior, want a physical program to compliment mental health treatment, or are looking to take their fitness performance to the next level. Wellness coaching can make the difference.
Personal Development and Growth Strategies
Where do you want to go? Through analysis of your current behaviors, we can incorporate changes that support the life you want to lead, not the one you were handed. To do this, we set concrete goals, develop strategies to reach those goals and establish timelines to track your progress.
Why I do what I do …
My mission is to help you see the beauty that lies within. I want you to be inspired everyday. I work to help you find balance in your daily life, allowing you to become the best version of yourself.
By healing past wounds we embrace the core of who we are and who we want to be. Using a variety of modalities, I work to inspire you on your personal journey. This work allows you to take control of your life, empowering you to be fearless as you embrace your path. No matter what you are dealing with, there is always an option – out or around it.
