I also draw from a daily practice of meditation and mindfulness .
My focus in our work is to accompany you, both as a guide and a companion, in your search for a deeper sense of yourself, finding your "place in the world", both individually and in relationship. I believe you have the wisdom within for your own growth and healing. In response to the problems in our lives, we all develop survival strategies and coping mechanisms that keep us disconnected from our true self. Because we do this unconsciously, the resulting thoughts and behaviors can sometimes make us wonder if something is wrong with us.

Through somatic experiencing (SE), mindfulness , and spiritually-centered therapy, I help my clients renegotiate painful agreements about life and get to the root cause of symptoms.
I help powerful women breakthrough childhood trauma that keeps them stuck. Is anxiety, fear, panic, and unhealed experiences from your past continuing to rule your life? Do you have trouble taking care of your whole self (mind, body spirit)? Overcoming addictive behaviors? Asking for you what you need in relationships? Knowing and aligning with your purpose? You are not crazy. Your nervous system is locked in chronic fight-flight-freeze patterns that keep you shut off from a thriving life, and your full vitality. I can help.

I help clients mend their broken hearts and calm their overactive minds by joining them in their journey towards deeper self-awareness through kindness and compassion. I whole-heartedly believe in the beauty of each person's unique perspective, and at the same time, gently encourage clients to be mindful of the universal human experiences of love and loss. Thus, providing comfort while helping clients explore issues that are difficult or painful. My creative and empathetic approach can assist clients in breaking a repetitive mindset by allowing them to gain new perspective through fresh insights, support and empowerment.

I am trained in several therapeutic modalities including EMDR, CBT, ACT, and Mindfulness , and I enjoy helping those dealing with relationship issues, parenting challenges, eating issues, and addictions.
Have you heard of the saying, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change," by Dr Carl Rogers? In my experience, our suffering stems from a lack of self-acceptance and self-compassion. I have also realized that it is not until we are willing to take that first step of looking at ourselves honestly and kindly, that we start living life fully. If you are feeling stuck dealing with difficult situations or repeating unhealthy habits, I can help.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in La Jolla with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in La Jolla can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as La Jolla MBCT therapists.
