About

Life throws so much at us. Often our natural instinct is to cling to the happy times and push away pain and suffering. However, learning to accept difficult situations and accept change is possible through guidance and feedback. Learning to act effectively to accept change and to face the places where we need to improve is an act of courage that does not appear overnight. I believe in evidence-based and practical strategies to help my clients improve their lives and emotional well-being. I believe that change is not only possible but inevitable.
I bring to the table more than 5 years of experience working with adults and adolescents on a multitude of mental health issues. Since the beginning of my career I have worked extensively with mindfulness based therapies like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy.
If you are experiencing frustration with your life as it currently is and are willing to commit to making a change for the better then let me be your guide as you rediscover your sense of purpose and self. Together we can work to help you take the necessary steps toward feeling confident in your ability to overcome life's challenges.
