I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness -based stress reduction.
I believe we can all thrive under the right circumstances. I strive to cultivate a nonjudgmental, supportive space where my clients feel safe to work on sensitive issues. The first goal of therapy is often to improve your ability to deal with whatever problem is immediately in front of you. The next is to raise awareness of patterns in your daily life that prevent you from obtaining the peace and fulfillment you desire. We'll work together to get unstuck and find a way forward.

I utilize a variety of models and evidence-based practices to assist clients, including Somatic Experiencing, Feminist Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MSBR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and Shame Resiliency Theory.
Currently accepting new virtual clients - - We live in a society with harmful belief systems about our identities (i.e. gender, sexual orientation, race, etc.). These belief systems can impact our mental well-being, and lead to feelings of shame, emptiness, hopelessness, addiction, as well as nervous system dysregulation. I empower those I work with to step into healing by building resilience to shame, strengthening and regulating the nervous system, and creating a space for authenticity.

Mindfulness teaches us how to be present in the moment, getting out of states that keep us feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed.
I've worked with teens & their families for more than 20 years. Currently, within my practice, I see individuals from 18 years on. I use an eclectic approach built on developing the therapist-client relationship first and moving forward from there. Particular areas include anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, & gender identity. The work is informed from a mindfulness stance, cultivating strength through gaining an understanding of how the mind/body/heart influence feelings and behaviors. Hypnosis also allows for a deeper exploration and gut-level understanding of the past's influence on the present, allowing for release

Having found traditional therapies to be slow and sometimes ineffective, I have learned alternative therapies that work more quickly and efficiently. Energy psychology techniques such as EFT and imagery work are more effective in healing a variety of emotional and interpersonal problems. I will teach you mindfulness practices that you can use on your own between sessions. I may suggest books, music, yoga, or other wellness practices to help you heal. I want to help you see that even if you have experienced pain, limitation, or losses, you are still capable of creating the satisfying life you want.

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.
