About Dr. K

GET TO KNOW ME

I am a Health and Wellness Psychologist, Lifestyle Medicine Advocate, and Life Coach. 

For over 20 years, I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences. I work to stay up to date in the health, wellness, and psychology field.   

I believe in a team based approach to therapy and will help you find the tools you want for lasting happiness.  I believe in the power of "can-do" over "can't." Complaining is like carrying a heavy backpack that slows you down. I can teach you how to lighten your load with a toolkit of positive self-talk and solutions.

 

Pain can take many forms, and I am here to listen and collaborate with you in finding ways to ease your unique struggles. I am excited to embark on this journey with you, exploring techniques and solutions that can bring you greater ease and peace.

Get in touch with me today for more information or read more below.

I believe that everyone has the potential to be healthy, happy, and reach their full potential,
and I am fully committed to providing the support and guidance you seek to achieve your goals.
