Are you struggling to overcome your past? Do you find yourself feeling stuck and disconnected in your every day life? Do you find yourself engaging in repetitive patterns yet unsure how to change? Whether you struggle with managing your emotions or your behaviors, people have an incredible ability to rise above their challenges and achieve healing and connection with the life they want. I believe in the transformational ability of therapy to overcome past events and present obstacles both in ourselves and our life to find new strength, resolve and meaning. I believe the road to healing is illuminated through self-discovery.

Stress and unaddressed difficult situations can create a perfect storm for unhealthy coping skills and uncontrollable emotions. Mindi can teach you skills, strategies and tools to better deal with your problems. Therapy is a way to feel empowered to take hold of all that life throws your way.

I think it can be a very difficult thing for someone to make the decision to ask for help, but at some point we all have asked. Often times people think of themselves as week if they find themselves asking for help. I consider it sign of strength. I believe in providing a practical and interactive experience for my clients in a sensitive, supportive, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment. I strive to work with my clients to have a sense of hope for the future and that the situations that have brought them to my office through commitment and some work can and will be improved.

I work with holistic therapies to help people with anxiety, depression, and also medical conditions including back pain, migraines, IBS, and many others. If you have physical symptoms you may wonder how a mental health therapist can help you with that. Well, because all our experience is filtered through the brain we can work with neuroplasticity to change the brain pathways responsible for our experience these symptoms. This is a fascinating journey that can truly open up your life if you’ve been limited by a chronic condition and you haven’t seen satisfactory results from your medical treatments.

I have been a therapist for 29 years and bring a breadth of experience to the treatment process. Therapy is an exciting, albeit challenging opportunity. It provides a springboard into a positive and meaningful future. In a warm, comfortable environment, we team together to solve current and/or long standing challenges. Having overcome an eating disorder 30 years ago, they are a specialty - though only a fraction of my practice. Without question, we all have the capacity to change our lives!! The secret: just never give up! :)

Do you long to experience change in your life? Maybe you're feeling defeated in life, seeking freedom from a shaming voice inside, longing for greater connection in relationships, or facing a significant transition or loss. Whatever you're experiencing, I believe there is no cookie cutter approach to addressing the complex problems of life. I view psychotherapy as a coming alongside journey that creates an open, safe space where you as a whole person and the particulars of your story (including those places where you feel most stuck) can be explored, understood, and worked through to cultivate hope and transformation.

There is immense strength in vulnerability. It allows us to tap into a deeper understanding of ourselves and promote a sense of healing and wholeness. Allow me to join you in a journey of self-exploration, in which together we will compassionately and curiously examine the roots of your emotional struggles and work towards a sense of inner peace. Many of us experience anxiety and depression, or feel trapped by our trauma. Perhaps you continue to find yourself in unhealthy relationships or stuck in negative life patterns. These emotions can be overwhelming and leaving us to feel hopeless, unsatisfied with life, or even broken.

You have just made the first step toward making a change in your life! And I am so glad that you're here. Throughout our lives, we experience emotions such as anxiety, anger, sorrow, shame, depression, or worthlessness. Often they are the result of the loss of a loved one, unresolved conflict (at home, on the job &/or within oneself), trauma, loneliness or isolation. I believe that what we perceive as problems are really opportunities to make lasting improvements in ourselves and to become more fully human. Life is a series of transitions; we are all a work in progress, and can often benefit from help along the way.
