I utilize EMDR, mindfulness , motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and hypnosis.
I specialize in treating individuals & couples with depression, anxiety, sexual health & relationship issues, trauma, and other life challenges. Although it can be difficult to take the leap into mental health treatment, I believe doing so can contribute immeasurably to anyone’s well-being. The current stress and uncertainty of day to day life make this especially true. I strongly believe all individuals are capable of personal growth, overcoming struggles, and bettering their lives.

In addition to my training as a clinical social worker, I draw from decades of experience with yoga, Eastern philosophy, and Mindfulness .
I believe that each of us already possesses the ability to live a happy and fulfilling life. With greater self-understanding, we can discover and break through barriers that hold us back, find new perspectives, and achieve new goals. I work with people who are experiencing specific challenges--such as trauma or relationship issues--as well as those who suffer from anxiety, depression, feel "stuck in a rut" or are simply interested in exploring new ways to find more fulfillment in their lives. Whatever your goal, we can work together to achieve balance and lasting change.

Sometimes in life we can feel lost, misguided, anxious, stuck or even desperate. We find ourselves repeating patterns, doing the same things over and over again, coming up short of opportunities and solutions in regard to our problems. Often times, this is due to limited belief systems instilled upon us, or through the experience of fears, injustice and a need to simply catch our breath. Are you ready to focus on growth, health, fulfillment and recognizing your higher purpose and true potential? Let's release these perceived limitations, ignite passion, heal old wounds, fulfill the option of being true to self and make that change.

During difficult times, we can feel overwhelmed and stuck, unable to break ineffective or even destructive cycles. Getting “unstuck” involves incorporating new skills and concepts, such as psychological flexibility, self-awareness, assertive communication skills, mindfulness , effective coping strategies, insight, decision making skills, and values clarity.

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.
