My preferred methods of practice are cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapy with an emphasis on mindfulness and acceptance.
Addictive behaviors are difficult for an individual as well as their loved ones. The initial step in meeting a new client is getting an accurate assessment to facilitate the necessary level of treatment for a drug or alcohol problem. Services available are individual, group, and family therapy for adolescents and adults. In addition, I provide services for personality disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression and OCD. A safe, supportive and caring environment is available for you to discuss your needs.

When we decide to turn toward our own experiences with care, support and mindfulness we learn to respond instead of react. In some ways change is not easy, it's not a straight line and it's unpredictable. Yet, if we don’t actively build a momentum toward responding, we will grow our suffering through reactivity. The mind is changeable and we can become the guardians of our minds. Emotions are like the weather and we can learn to weather the emotional storms. Our bodies store memories & trauma along with tremendous wisdom. When we value being present, cherish feeling alive and meet life with an open heart we grow these capacities.

Do you want to feel better about your self and improve your relationships with others? My approach is grounded in Humanistic/Existential psychology and incorporates Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfulness -based techniques. Combining these approaches, the goal is to create a non-judgmental "curious" understanding about your emotions and yourself as a whole. It is my hope that you find acceptance for your emotions and all parts of yourself. We will also identify reactive thoughts and behaviors and replace them with intentional responses. Through intentional living, you can create and live a life that is meaningful with profound connections to others.

Why is it always easier to beat ourselves up than to say loving and empathic things to ourselves? I believe that we are comprised of multiple "parts" and that sometimes our negative parts are so loud, we have trouble connecting to our self-compassion. It can feel easier to perpetuate personal stories of unworthiness than to locate our strength. In my practice, I know that regardless of their pasts, everyone deserves compassion and the support to rewrite painful stories. It is easy to forget that moments of happiness are not the same thing as having meaning and purpose in life.

Welcome! What is a mosaic? It is little imperfect pieces of glass or tile that come together to form beautiful art. How can we create a mosaic within ourselves and in our lives? All the broken pieces of glass or tile can represent trauma, experiences, life journeys, parts of our self, etc. that we sometimes don't necessarily know how to understand them all to incorporate them into our sense of self. I have a passion for working with people to help put these pieces together in a way that creates the beautiful mosaic that is YOU!
