About

If you are seeking therapy, you have already been working so hard! It's time to try something different. I practice a therapy focusing on mindful awareness and living in the present; fully and peacefully experiencing life. As a result, clients experience symptom reduction and improvement in functioning. This therapy emphasizes values, forgiveness, acceptance, compassion, living in the present moment, and accessing a transcendent sense of self. This practice can often help people who have been unsuccessful with therapy in the past, have had a return of symptoms after repeated therapy, or are reluctant to engage in the therapeutic process.
Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a mindfulness-based therapy, has been effective with a range of clinical conditions. ACT assumes that the psychological processes of a normal human mind are often destructive and create suffering. Symptom reduction is not a goal of ACT, but rather to live fully, peacefully in the moment.
