Do you feel like you’re on high alert all of the time—constantly walking on eggshells, worrying about what could happen and on the lookout for danger? Are you consumed with incessant, looping thoughts that make it difficult to focus on tasks at hand and be present with the people around you? Perhaps you engage in perfectionistic thinking and are overly hard on yourself, always second guessing your decisions, stressing about making a mistake and thinking you could have done something better. Welcome to my profile, and approach: with Mindfulness informed choices, we can transform our lives into ones of meaning, reducing our suffering.
I take a holistic, integrative and strength-based approach to treating mental health issues, addressing both specific symptoms and working to help you understand yourself and your experience to heal as a whole. Rather than focus exclusively on the thoughts and stories that can fuel anxiety, we’ll work somatically, mindfully & practically for your solutions.
First, it’s important that you don’t give up. Mental health difficulties can be mitigated and even overcome, and I firmly believe that there is a path to healing for everyone. It’s just a matter of figuring out what works specifically for you. I truly love working with clients who seek practical, effective healing and are ready to increase self-awareness.
