Mindfulness can bring increased happiness because it helps you to befriend yourself, discover sources of painful emotions or moods, face life's challenges, and create satisfying relationships.
Welcome, and congratulations! Finding the right therapist is a big step. If you'd like to understand how your mind causes you mischief--anxiety, stress, depression, anger, addictions, or relationship problems--I can help you to pursue these goals. I have many years of experience in mindfulness meditation and practice, and a thorough understanding of how our thoughts, stories, and assumptions result in increased stress or increased happiness. I also make good use of mindfulness -based cognitive therapy in helping adults and teens with sexual abuse or addiction issues. Clients tell me that I am "an easy person to talk to."

MINDFULNESS , BALANCE, GROWTH, AND EMPOWERMENT. It is possible to achieve a higher level of inner peace and reduce unnecessary suffering. We all can "lose our way" at times and find ourselves in situations that are difficult and painful. I believe that these crises can hold within them tremendous opportunities for growth and strengthening. Although most enter therapy during a crisis, the therapeutic process need not also feel painful or traumatizing. I will create a safe and validating therapeutic environment in which to transform personal suffering into strength and wisdom. We will collaborate to establish clarity and direction in our therapy.

I specialize in CBT, Solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness .
Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

I PROVIDE TELEHEALTH ONLY TO CLIENTS RESIDING IN ILLINOIS AND CALIFORNIA. Seeking help can be difficult, but something brought you here: increased anxiety, feelings of sadness or loneliness; things have just become harder to deal with; negative thoughts are dominating your life; a loss, a new job, or a life transition have turned your life upside down; your relationship with your loved ones is not working very well. I work with individual adults and aim to provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental therapeutic environment. Together we can figure it out. We can bring back purpose, vitality, and connections in your life.

I draw from evidence-based approaches, such as CBT and mindfulness to help you manage anxiety and depression.
We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

We can work together to cultivate trauma recovery using techniques including polyvagal theory, mindfulness meditation, somatic psychology, and CBT.
Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

My work is informed by primarily Mindfulness -Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (M-CBT), family systems, motivational interviewing and collaborative brief therapy.
You are probably here because something has happened in life that has lead you to seek out support or guidance from a professional. Life can get complicated and there is no handbook on how to handle things like depression, anxiety, addiction and relationship problems. It is important to know two things: you are not alone and there are always hidden lessons in the most difficult moments of our lives. I specialize in teaching skills to help individuals manage stress and achieve balance in their life.

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.
