"My approach to therapy is based on mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness teaches us how to be present and self-compassion teaches how to be a friend and ally to ourselves no matter what. I offer a warm and safe relationship, good old fashioned listening, and skills to improve effective communication, managing and learning from emotions, self-acceptance, compassion, and connecting with and living your values. Mindfulness-based therapy is practical, evidence-based, and it works. You don't have to be stuck, overwhelmed, or feel disconnected from your life. You can make positive changes, heal, grow, and thrive."

"For most people, strong relationships are an important indicator of health and well-being. When we feel stuck in old patterns that no longer serve us, our connection to others suffers too, which can turn up as depression, anxiety, or simply feeling alone and disconnected. By reconnecting with our essential gifts and strengths through the therapy process, we in turn can offer more to family, friends, and community. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients and view them as the experts on their own experiences, and I understand therapy as a journey to the revelation of the authentic self at the heart of every person."

"I believe all people have an innate capacity for growth and positive change. Sometimes we just need some help finding our way. As a therapist I help children, adults, and families find their own paths to healing by listening closely to the strengths and capacities they already have, while helping them remove the barriers that get in the way. People from all backgrounds are welcome in my office, where I strive to provide an environment that feels safe, friendly, and non-judgmental to all. Building trust and safety in the therapy room is important in helping people feel supported, gain insight, and practice new skills."

"You can change how you feel about yourself, gain control over your symptoms, and live with a greater sense of ease in 3 to 5 sessions. In one session, you will know if this therapy can help you, and it's very likely that it will. This is a new therapy, similar to EMDR. It is now used by the Veteran's Administration to treat PTSD in about 4 sessions. Studies show this therapy can transform negative emotions, significantly reduce or eliminate anxiety, irritability, compulsive behaviors, and enhance confidence and self-awareness. It is as remarkable as it sounds."
