I support individuals, couples and families in identifying patterns that are not working for them and creating cooperative relational dynamics.

I have been a good fit for individuals looking for a supportive space to address anxiety and depression, needing movement in developing new coping strategies, seeking a deeper level of wellness and balance, or identity development. I have often found that I work well with those who have found therapy unhelpful in the past and are looking to give it another try. I also recognize that counseling is a different experience for those who identify as ADHD or ASD. The neuro-diverse culture is an area that I have experience in and that I find meaningful to work with.

Welcome. I'd like to let you know how I see therapy. For me it is important to provide a trusting, compassionate and understanding atmosphere so people can feel safe to explore, discover and develop basic qualities and skills necessary to grow and heal. I am a mindfulness, body-based psychotherapist who teaches the profound healing power of heartfelt awareness and how it can help people free themselves from negative and painful thoughts, beliefs and emotions. What I see happening with people who come to me is a belief that if they can control and avoid their pain and suffering it will go away.

Sometimes the stresses and difficulties of life can become too insurmountable to face on our own, and we need additional therapeutic input to help navigate these obstacles and build resiliency. Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, difficulty with coping, relationship challenges or workplace stress? These are some of the issues we can address together in therapy. If you want to make positive changes in your life and see an increase in your overall health and well-being, improved mood, feel more in control of your life, experience peace, discover your full potential or gain a better understanding of yourself, therapy can help.

Therapy helps you craft a healthy relationship with yourself and others, and supports meaningful life choices. My clients struggle with issues such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, loneliness, relationship challenges, questions around life direction, and personal identity. Often they report feeling "stuck," frustrated in their ability to change or move forward in their lives. As a therapist, I like to work collaboratively with clients to support and strengthen what is already working and to bring insight to areas that need more attention. With compassion and kindness, my aim is to help my clients gain coping skills that foster greater well-being and help manage difficult feelings.

Therapy is a place where we get to focus on what's important to us: where we've been, where we'd ideally like to go, and everything in between. A confidential place just for you - free from the distractions of work, responsibilities, family and other people's agendas. My goal is to meet you exactly where you are at, and to support you in the ways that you need.

Sometimes life is hard. It is ok to ask for help. In fact, doing so is an act of courage! So often in life we feel disconnected, alone, anxious, and afraid. Therapy is a place to begin facing these difficulties. When we bring our pain and suffering into the light we have the chance to heal. I work collaboratively with my clients to face their issues and get in touch with the best version of themselves. Change and growth are possible. In therapy you will be accepted and supported during your journey. Please feel free to reach out for a consult.

For the past two decades I've been studying and practicing various healing traditions from around the world. In my practice as a therapist, I am drawn to the “common factors” that are the essence of various healing modalities and psychotherapies. Of most importance in any context is the quality of the therapeutic relationship.

Most of us find ourselves in need of reflection at different points in our lives. While there are various ways we can address this need, therapy offers a unique opportunity to be heard and to explore our inner world. I view therapy as a space to be curious, an opportunity to integrate life experiences and deepen understandings, and an orientation process, making change more possible. My perspective is trauma-informed and culturally-humble as trauma, disconnection, and cultural stress can have varying degrees of impact on us.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Eureka will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
