When possible, I like to incorporate activities that encourage new perspectives to emerge, such as Narrative, Art and mindfulness .
As we navigate daily life sometimes we come across rough waters that overwhelm us, leaving us feeling adrift, without direction or purpose, even stranded and alone. Finding the "right" direction can be petrifying! In both my professional and private life, I've learned that getting support is integral to finding our way again. I am passionate about helping adults and couples learn new skills, uncover new perspectives, connect with a source of strength, and choose a more authentic path. Idea clients include caregiver burnout, young adult transition, parenting and Adult ADHD.

The modalities I incorporate are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Mindfulness .
Ideal clients are those who want to be the experts of their experiences and view therapy as a collaborative approach. I work with clients who are ready to begin their journey around their trauma work. I've found EMDR to be a critical component to integrative trauma treatment. These clients might be ready to see a reduction in symptoms! I also enjoy working with clients who are feeling stuck in life, perhaps by their anxiety or depression. I have experience working with teens, substance use and veterans.

My foundational approach comes from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with a focus on mindfulness -based CBT.
“Knowledge is only rumor until it lives in the muscle.” This proverb from the Asaro tribe of Papua New Guinea is the foundation of how we bring what we learn into a lived experience and create lasting change. We can read books, watch videos, and make resolutions but until we truly move forward in a different way, we run the risk of getting stuck in old patterns. My goal is to help uncover the root causes that lead to the use of substances or behaviors that become detrimental to the spirit and values in the individual. Reclaiming these values and rebuilding self-esteem is possible and begins with a decision to seek help.

My primary therapeutic approach utilizes positive psychology and combines the application of cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness based therapies.
I am an Annapolis based clinical psychologist. I am also a wife, mother, daughter and friend. I see teens and adults struggling with many issues, including: work/academic, anxiety,depression/mood, sports, health issues and relationship problems.

Art can be used to practice emotional regulation, mindfulness , self-awareness, and tension relief.
I serve clients who struggle with anxiety, ADHD/ADD, depression, self-esteem, and suicidal thoughts. Artistic talent is not needed for Art Therapy. Sometimes, feelings are just hard to put into words, so creating art helps people identify and share how they feel. My theoretical views are based off of Cognitive Behavioral Theory in which our thoughts, emotions and behaviors have a cyclical effect on each other. In order to change our behavior, we must first learn how our thoughts affect our emotions and vice versa.

Grief manifests itself in various ways from sadness to physical illness.

Mindfulness - a way of paying attention to ourselves in a non-judgemental way in order to understand our responses to life - is one valuable tool I teach.
Loving well and living fully - learning to live with changes in our lives with grace, wisdom and compassion - is what most of us wish for. And yet, the struggles of everyday life leave many of us feeling fearful, worried or sad and sometimes disconnected or alone. One valuable way to discover how to draw on your natural resilience to meet the challenges of life is to participate in psychotherapy. Therapy is an active partnership - where both people are listening and exploring, investigating and discovering those parts of your life that are causing suffering and difficulties - and then finding the ways to heal those places.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Annapolis 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 Annapolis can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Annapolis MBCT therapists.
