The approach I take as a therapist draws from both cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices. In short, people learn how to relate to their thoughts differently and as a result additionally gain insight, problem solving skills, communication skills, increased sense of control over feeling states and improved relationships. Through processes such as examination of your perceptions and beliefs, increasing your ability to be present in the here and now, exploration of your values, development of new skills and resolution of previous trauma, I've had the privilege of witnessing my clients experience symptom reduction and profound change.

Being an adolescent/young adult can feel amazing, while also feeling confusing with all of the changes experienced during this time. I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults and their families, through individual, family and group counseling. I primarily utilize therapeutic approaches of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as part of individual and group counseling. Group counseling can enable individuals to form bonds with peers in a structured environment; understand that others can relate to their concerns; and share personal feelings that they have difficulty communicating.

Any of us can get "stuck in a rut" and one key to pulling out of it is learning to respond effectively to life's stressors, rather than react negatively to them. My background in attachment theory, cognitive behavioral strategies, mindfulness and EMDR, allows me to successfully help those struggling with anxiety, depression and trauma. I also enjoying helping people cope with life transitions and relationship problems. I love working with clients who are motivated for change but whose inner critic can be fierce, often limiting them from experiencing joy and contentment.

"As above, so below". The ancient saying reminds us that the ways in which we experience life and encounters with others are based on patterns of behavior and beliefs about ourselves in the world that have developed over time. Often these patterns and beliefs serve us well, other times they create inner turmoil, frustration, and confusion. As a therapist, I am committed to the facilitating the process for you of discovering unconscious patterns and beliefs, how they have been beneficial or harmful, and learning to make consciously informed responses to the problematic situations in life that you are facing.

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming, relationships or family can feel broken or full of tension and fighting. Sometimes in life we can feel disconnected and struggle to find joy, peace, calm and serenity. Sometimes struggles, problems or relationship issues begin to disrupt our thoughts and daily life and damage relationships. If you are looking for hope in your life, family, and/or relationships... If you are tired of the anxiety, depression, fighting and tension with your partner, family or teens... if you feel like you've lost control it's time to seek help and therapy.

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" - Lao Tzu. Having the courage to work on yourself to reach your full potential does not have to happen alone. As a psychologist and cancer survivor, I've experienced physical and emotional challenges that led to positive and healthy lifestyle changes. I hope to use these experiences to help others on their journey with emotional issues, chronic medical conditions, grief, life transition issues, or those who want to improve nutrition and lifestyle. I hope to walk this journey with you in order to facilitate growth and healing.

Currently, I'm mostly using Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy with my clients. When, as a child, we find ourselves traumatizing or trapped in negative circumstances, parts of our self system compensate by locking away that which at that time was too much for us to handle. Later, if we do not go back to this locked away material, the pain, confusion and injustice of what happened to us long ago, can get triggered, or, awakened, when similar such challenges arise in the present. IFS provides a safe way for that locked away material to be approached and reprocessed, allowing our core self to take back control of our lives.

I have been in practice fourteen years providing therapy to individuals, as well as couples and groups. One principal goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can feel comfortable exploring personal issues; with the end result being a greater understanding of self - both internally and in relationship to others. I draw from many theoretical orientations, and most importantly emphasize emotional safety in my work. I remain very passionate about my occupation and hope that this is warmly conveyed to everyone I have the privilege to work with.

I believe that each of us has the capacity to heal from our experiences, no matter how difficult, painful, or traumatic. Though the circumstances that cause our pain may be shared, the journey of healing is an entirely unique and personal one. My goals are to help you define your journey and provide a landscape where you feel seen, heard, and above all else, safe along the way. Whether still setting your course, or well into your journey, therapy can be deeply rewarding.
