Not accepting new clients
I draw upon various theories and techniques (psychodynamic, interpersonal, mindfulness-based approaches, and experiential modalities, including equine assisted psychotherapy) to help people become more aware and accepting of themselves, and to begin moving toward wholeness by integrating mind, body, and emotions.
I am passionate about working with people who are dealing with symptoms of trauma/abuse, and other issues related to identity development and self-worth. My approach in therapy is warm, genuine, person-centered (as opposed to symptom-centered) and collaborative. Starting from a place of compassion and self-acceptance is essential for real change to occur. I provide a safe space for clients to explore the deepest aspects of themselves. To create a sense of safety, I listen without judgment, interact with genuineness, provide empathic reflection and feedback, and treat clients with respect and unconditional positive regard.

Self-compassion and mindfulness are additional areas we can explore together.
For many of us, the journey has been difficult... Feeling trapped, hopeless, and as though you have tried everything, yet are powerless to change things. While everyone will feel this way during dark times, if this has become your day-to-day struggle, it may be time to seek support. I am here for you. I appreciate the courage it takes to reach out and try something different. Whether this is your first experience with counseling or you are interested in a different approach this time, a life filled with meaning, joy, and connection is possible and within your reach.

I have a special interest in teaching integrative health skills, mindfulness/meditation and strive to empower others to find balance/harmony.
I have always been fascinated by what it means to be human: the choices we make, the stories we live with, and the beliefs, values and morals we choose to live by. Evaluating or becoming reacquainted with these parts of our human experience are all reasons that we find ourselves in need of a listening ear. I believe that past trauma, depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, loss, chronic pain, and spiritual disconnection all conceal our innermost capabilities for living a healthy, happy, whole life. I am passionate about helping people create strong and meaningful relationships with those they love. No relationship is too bad.

I have a unique background and heart to support emergency responders because I am an EMT and retired law enforcement officer. I have been a licensed therapist in Arizona since 2007. I believe first responders are very strong and resilient people, but sometimes they need support by a licensed professional who understands their jobs and work culture. I can help them build resilience, learn additional coping tools to get better outcomes at work and at home, and I can provide a safe and understanding environment to "off-load" and process some of the intrusive effects of trauma they've experienced (accepting adult clients only).

How does mindfulness-based cognitive therapy work?

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy originated in the work of John Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He developed mindfulness-based stress reduction, which is a technique found in yoga and meditation. MBCT is a combination of this type of stress reduction and cognitive behavioral therapy; it essentially quiets emotional distress through mindfulness, utilizing proper breathing and meditation. These techniques aim to bring the individual into the present moment when in a state of distress.

When do I know if I need treatment with mindfulness-based cognitive therapy?

If an individual’s mind is filled with emotional distress and general negativity, the person may feel trapped. A mindfulness-based cognitive therapist can help a person change their thinking patterns as well as their behavior through calm acceptance and compassion. This therapy can provide an individual with the coping skills needed for a healthier and more constructive life.

What should I expect from mindfulness-based cognitive therapy?

This therapy often takes place in group sessions. A therapist will work with the group as well as with each individual. Meditation and breathing exercises are core practices that aim to invite inquiry and discovery into a person’s troubled mental state. The objective is to identify and lessen negative thoughts and behaviors and move toward optimal health and productivity. The individual will see life in a more realistic way. This therapy is supportive, accepting, and warm.

Is mindfulness-based cognitive therapy effective?

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is evidence-based and effective. One study found that people with major depressive disorder have benefitted from this type of therapy; the person accepts their distressed thoughts and also moves into healthier patterns of thinking. This therapy also aims to move an individual away from automatic negative responses. This type of therapy can bring a person lifelong change, with higher levels of satisfaction, less stress, as well as positive emotional and behavioral habits.
