About

As a clinician, I am focused on helping clients find a life of meaning and value. Often times in our pain there is incredibly useful information about what's important to us. As humans, we have evolved to move away from physical pain, to escape it: and for most types of pain, those methods work! But for emotional pain, avoidance not only doesn’t get rid of our pain and suffering, it often amplifies it. In discovering how each individual client finds meaning in their lives, we ground ourselves in the willingness to walk toward our pain, rather than away from it. It is in this space that we find healing and meaningful change.
My approach is grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which is adaptive, flexible, evidence-based (Thank you, Science!), and most importantly, effective- it just works. I work with teens (15+), adults of all ages, couples and families. I also specialize in working with folks with high-pressure careers and a those with a history of trauma.
It’s important to acknowledge that therapy isn’t always easy, but if we are open and willing to do the hard work, we are rewarded with genuine, sustainable, meaningful change. Give me a call or shoot me an e-mail; we can have a brief consultation and discuss whether we are a good fit for your current needs.
