When the demands of our lives become overwhelming, we can feel trapped and powerless in our suffering. Often, we then seek to avoid or ignore our emotional pain, rather than address it. In my work as a clinical psychologist, I strive to help individuals approach their experiences in a way that reduces suffering and promotes health. With a genuine, compassionate, and collaborative therapy style, I work with adults to reconnect with their values and increase the sense of ease in their lives. My approach is strongly rooted in mindfulness-based therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
