The latest Mindfulness approaches.
Your mind and body make a powerful, interwoven pair. Is your body expressing what the thoughts are repressing? Easing and gently lifting your sense of heaviness from anxiety, depression, grief, isolation and emptiness of spirit can be closer than you ever believed! Let me guide you to the other side of "stuck" in your personal and professional relationships, emotions, body issues, and success. When we are in a session all the focus is on being fully present for,and deeply listening to you, offering a clear, kind and soothing direction, towards releasing unhealthy thought patterns by integrating with body feelings.

My philosophy in working with youth and adults is to share cognitive and mindfulness techniques, in a supportive setting, to help my clients make positive changes in their thoughts and actions. Utilizing personal accountability, combined with humor and lightness, I aim to help clients cultivate compassion for themselves, so they may be willing to experiment with new tools. I strive to help clients come back into their bodies, more effectively process their feelings, and move decisively toward wellness. My theory is to be flexible and sensitive in my approach while moving clients toward a more confident, realized version of themselves.

I’m trained in various evidence-based treatments, including CBT, DBT, ACT, mindfulness -based intervention, and psychodynamic psychotherapy; however, my approach is integrative and individualized, as each one of my clients has his/her/their own unique strengths, cultural backgrounds, and beliefs.
Are you or a loved one in a time of transition or uncertainty? Are you experiencing stress, anxiety or depression? Are you unsure about therapy, but nothing else has worked? I am committed to providing a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to give voice to yourself, and for us to collaborate on workable solutions to implement in your school life, work life, and/or relationship with others. My goal for you in therapy is to become your own therapist by gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and by learning what works for you in times of distress through leaning on your innate wisdom.

Using mindfulness , we learn to identify thoughts, emotions, and/or social factors in the moment and explore the rational/emotional processes involved leading to a greater general sense of awareness and self.
Life is filled with challenging transitions, relationships, and experiences. One of my favorite sayings is – nothing in this life worth having comes easy. I use it, myself, as a reminder and motivator when things get hard. Because they do, and that’s okay! It is okay to be stressed, frustrated, sad, angry, excited, and any other emotion you feel. The challenge comes when those emotions lead to unfortunate circumstances. I believe the things we want will test us before conceding and opening the door to success and personal fulfillment. Resilience is a core trait to develop and can provide everyone with the opportunity for happiness.

I work with youth and adults, in addition to facilitating mindfulness and ecotherapy workshops.
At times, life feels challenging and we forget who we really are and our inner compass loses focus. Therapy can be a way or remembering and coming back to our wholeness. With presence, authenticity, and deep listening, I will support you with creating a healing journey that best meets your unique needs and challenges and can be applied in the "real world" in order to bring about the healing and growth that is most transformative, nurturing, compassionate, and wise for you. I am passionate about integrating nature based practices, mind-body-spirt wholeness, and skilled in supporting women and historically marginalized communities.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients 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.
