My current approaches to helping others at this time are Mindfulness , Yoga, and Nature-Informed Therapy, which I recently became certified in this past spring.
Thank you for taking a courageous leap towards healing and wellness. Taking this first step towards wellness is the beginning of a journey filled with awareness and insight building, hope, challenges, lots of learning, and love for yourself and others. May your journey be profound. I hope we can walk it together. "The dividing line between what happens automatically and what happens voluntarily isn’t fixed. Choices matter, and thus the healing self comes into play. On its own the body knows how to survive; it’s up to us to teach it how to thrive.” ― Deepak Chopra, The Healing Self.

In order to help my clients learn to care for themselves and connect to others, I use a combination of mindfulness based cognitive therapy, psychoanalysis, and logotherapy in an environment of acceptance, unconditional positive regard, and personal accountability.
We all suffer, and we all have to cope with it. I can help relieve people of suffering caused by maladaptive patterns of feeling, thinking and behaving that they have been conditioned to repeat over time. I do this by building a relationship with them, then allowing that relationship to be the template for healthy interactions in life and a realistic perception of themselves and their situation.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients 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.
