*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS - WAITLIST ONLY* Poet Anne Sexton wrote, "That the worst of anyone Can be, finally, An accident of hope." If you're here, you probably feel at your worst. Maybe a traumatic event has left you feeling broken and lost. Perhaps what you've been doing to cope just isn't working anymore, or is doing more harm than good. Whatever your reasons, I'm glad you're thinking about therapy. This process can be scary and takes hard work, and I welcome anyone courageous enough to seek out hope.

*Not currently accepting new clients* At times in our lives, each of us need objective support. I have guided and witnessed others as a mental health professional for the past 14 years, and throughout my life as a family member, a friend, and a teacher. I believe that at our core, each of us has the resources we need, though they may be difficult to access. Listening to and appreciating each person in a respectful way is at the heart of how I approach life. I also find humor, practicality and creativity to be strengths I offer.

I combine traditional therapeutic approaches (cognitive-behavioral therapy, rational-emotive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy) with alternative approaches (brainspotting, mindfulness , trauma-informed yoga).
*Not currently enrolling new clients* Trauma happens when stressful experiences deplete our physical, mental, or emotional resources. Unresolved traumas can persist as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and a variety of other distressing symptoms that wreak havoc on our daily lives. I do not believe that we "get over" our traumas, but rather that we find a way through them. As your therapist, I will walk beside you in your journey through trauma as you regain control over your personal story.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Iowa City 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.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Iowa City can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Iowa City MBCT therapists.
