About

Many years ago I changed my life by pursuing a more fulfilling career. The concept that most inspired me was “Neuroplasticity”- The proven concept that we can change the way our mind works and in so doing experience greater well-being. Negative beliefs about ourselves are generally linked to negative things that we experienced in the past, or positive things that we needed to experience but unfortunately never did. By utilizing interventions that target "what happened" or "what needed to happen but didn't" we can increase of self-worth. Since thinking certain thoughts is habitual, we can learn to dismiss "unuseful thoughts".
I've found EMDR, IFS-EMDR; ACT (CBT) ; Mindfulness-Based; & Positive Psychology, to be quite effective if you are willing to invest a little practice time. In sessions I'll be listening very carefully, but we'll be doing more than just "you speaking and me listening". I'll be offering suggestions, interpretations, and in-session practices.
As someone who benefitted from therapy in younger years, I understand how it feels to need help and support, but uncertain about reaching out. Wondering "can it really help?" Yes! There are well-trained, experienced, and compassionate therapists out here. I'm proud to consider myself one. If we work together I'll be committed to your growth and well-being.
