Liberating adults from painful pasts, feared futures, and socially-inherited rulebooks.
Though you may not realize your mind holds rulebooks,
looking inside liberates you from them.
As your therapist, I offer you the science-backed strategies of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Through our work, you:
- Struggle less with your difficult thoughts, uncomfortable feelings, and unhelpful self-labels.
- Reconnect with and honor your whole self.
- Free yourself from the trap of avoiding inner pain.
- Move through life (even the hard parts) guided by what matters to you.
As the Founder of Busting Free℠ Health Coaching, I offer you ACT-based strategies to heal on the inside from silhouette-altering breast surgery.
Through our work, you:
- Move through mastectomy, aesthetic flat closure, or explant with awareness of and liberation from society’s “rules” about women and breasts.
- Are companioned by someone who understands these journeys personally and professionally.
- Emerge stronger, wiser, and more radiant than ever before.
Ways to work with me:
I specialize in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). I am experienced using ACT to help people overcome many different inner struggles and unhelpful behaviors. It’s best to reach out to me directly to explore the alignment between your goals and my practice.
Busting FreeSM health coaching helps you find your way before, during, and long after explant, explant to flat, or post-mastectomy aesthetic flat closure. This isn’t psychotherapy for past trauma or mental illness; it’s about learning to lower your mental breast rulebook and living the rest of your life on your terms with an unshakeable self-acceptance practice.
When facing silhouette-altering breast surgery, you may want an agenda-free, non-judgmental, and professional space to explore what’s best for you, while honoring your psychosocial well-being. During this one-hour consultation, I help you make sense of your thoughts, feelings, and actions to-date and holistically prepare for what is yet to come.
LIVE, one-hour, online classes filling the gap in professional psychosocial support for women who facing or recovering from silhouette-altering breast surgery like mastectomy, aesthetic flat closure, or explant.
I know this journey has rough spots. That’s why I freely share my e-book offering science-backed and on-the-go ways to steady yourself using the mind-body connection anytime you feel unsteady in life.
Did you know women are wired for connection, especially during times of stress? Join my free community supporting the inner journey for women whose lives are touched by longing for, living with, or removing breast implants.
My blog, Reclaiming You, features articles you won’t find elsewhere. It’s all about navigating the mental, emotional, and social challenges that show up on your explant or aesthetic flat closure journey.
