"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."

"Hi! I am so glad you are here. My approach is direct, nurturing and connective. Our relationship is the foundation from which we can begin to do the work. I believe in the capacity to change and to become our best selves. I want this for you and I will work with you to achieve this. I incorporate psychodynamic talk therapy to delve into the origins of trauma and pain while incorporating mindfulness and somatic experiencing to treat the mind (thoughts) and body (symptoms). Additionally, I acknowledge that oppression exists within marginalized communities, thus treating the individual in a social context."

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.

"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."
