"I use exposure therapy, motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic approaches as well as mindfulness-based treatments (CBT; ACT) to help you practice mindfulness of uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and sensations, without clinging to them or attempting to avoid them. The goal of deepening your self-observation skills is to create more mindful choices in the face of discomfort, which will lead to greater self-mastery. We want to lean into the discomfort in order to cultivate greater self-awareness, self-compassion, acceptance, and distress tolerance. "

"Often in life, we struggle to connect with our own vitality. Whether we are making major life decisions, wrestling with longstanding difficulties, or longing for shifts we can’t yet name, we need access to a sense of our own true presence and potential. When that access is blocked or tenuous, we suffer. Anxiety, depression, panic, phobia, relational trouble, isolation, self-harm, destructive patterns, or simply feeling lost are some forms of that suffering. Coming into meaningful relationship with another person in therapy is a powerful way to restore your connection with yourself—or to build it for the first time."

My clients often feel they're alone -- afraid to reach out, worried they've failed just by needing support, ashamed that their past experiences of trauma and abuse are not "fully healed by now", anxious that this means there is something truly "wrong" with them. What they used to love about life: connection, love, creativity, finding their soul's path -- it's disappearing, and they aren't sure how to get it back. They'd do anything to heal and reconnect with themselves and their lives, to remember who they truly are. I get what that feels like, and I can help!"
