In helping people gain balance and quality of life, I rely upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques. These evidence-based approaches give clients the education needed for personal growth, and anxiety-free living. Psychoeducation, CBT and Mindfulness allow clients to move away from therapy sooner and apply their new found skills to daily living. Learning new ways to perceive their world with more clarity and understanding frees clients to explore more about themselves, leading to a healthier and more satisfying life.

The most important element to success in therapy is the therapeutic relationship. Trusting and knowing that you are safe in your relationship with your counselor is essential to your well-being and growth. My approaches enable clients to make lasting change necessary in achieving the kind of life they long for.

Decreasing anxiety to a manageable level eliminates feelings of panic and fear, ending anxiety attacks. Once removed, clients are able to live fuller lives by using skills taught in our counseling sessions. Balance in mind, body, emotional, and spiritual (your own) are the gifts that I can give to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.
