I use attachment theories alongside CBT, ACT, Polyvagal Theory, yoga, and mindfulness .
At one time or another all of us face something in our life holding us back from what we want to accomplish. Over the past 10 years, I have learned whatever is holding us back usually comes in forms of self-defeating thoughts alongside emotional dysregulation that is strengthened with habitually repeated cycles. Emotionally defeating our sense of self and over thinking unfortunately goes together. Our thoughts can seem so powerful, so true. When bodies agree, we have a connection. I can help you break the connection that is no longer working. When we remove, we replace. Let the new cycle begin! Give me a call if you're ready!

I bring mindfulness based techniques, skill building and help to identify correlation between thoughts and emotions.
**I am doing telehealth and in person appointments. When you are faced with challenges, conflicts and loss, it can be difficult to overcome on your own. I believe we all have the strength and knowledge inside of us, we just need a little help finding it, and we all need someone with whom we can express ourselves. Life challenges can bring us to a place where support from a neutral and caring professional can make a needed difference. Counseling can help you get to a place of recovery, peace and empowerment.

Bibliotherapy& mindfulness interventions are added tools which I often engage.
In my 22 years as a psychologist I have sought to work collaboratively with individuals in emotional healing and personal growth and decision-making. I have accompanied many people on parts of their journeys toward self-discovery, self-acceptance and empowerment as they have experienced depression, anxiety and confusion. Those who are shy,unsure of themselves or interested in the interplay of psychological, physical, spiritual and cultural influences on their lives are often particularly good matches for my style. I also bring life experience as mother, educator, developer of a cross-cultural youth and family counseling program, and religious leader..

I have found that a hybrid of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and reality therapy helps to redirect old coping skills into personal empowerment.
Often family history and life experiences have taught us unhealthy skills of dealing with the painful events in our lives. You may have found yourself in place where you are reacting in ways you never thought you would and not living the life you want. It's common to not even know why you are feeling the way you do. Exhaustion, frustration, anger and being easily overwhelmed are just a few common indicators there is something going on with your emotional self. If you are struggling know there is a different way.

My integrative approach includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness , Internal Family Systems and Somatic Experiencing.
Life’s intense challenges can be overwhelming to deal with on your own. You may fear that acknowledging certain issues or feelings will overwhelm you. And many of us have learned that in order to be accepted, we must suppress our true feelings. This suppression of our real feelings, experiences, challenges may influence our behavior in unpredictable and negative ways and leave us feeling isolated, hopeless and alone. No matter what you’re feeling or facing, you are not alone and there is hope. Working with a skilled therapist leads to healing and growth.

Creating a safe, nonjudgmental space is a priority, with mindfulness and self-compassion principles in the forefront of the relationship.
I believe in an interpersonal approach to talk therapy that is inclusive of the physical, mental and social vulnerabilities a person may be experiencing. Often, we struggle to see ourselves and others clearly and are looking for the opportunity to be introspective, and insight-oriented therapy may be the answer. Importantly, I recognize and consider cultural and spiritual beliefs, social roles, and personal relationships, which are all factors often proven to lead to depression, anxiety and other mood disorders.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic-drawing from evidence-based approaches such as, interpersonal psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based cognitive therapy, psychodynamic theory, and person-centered therapy.
There are times in our lives when problems can feel overwhelming, painful, and difficult to face alone. Relying on friends and family may not be a viable option. During our sessions, you can expect me to take time to get to know you & provide a safe place for you to express your thoughts, feelings, & reactions that arise in and outside of therapy. You can also expect me to work directly in the present moment re an issue, as well as revisit your past re the issue. Whether it's a challenging situation, or you want to change direction in your life, I look forward to establishing a collaborative relationship to achieve your goals.

Seeking support from a compassionate therapist can be useful. As a therapist I take into account the whole person and help you through your concerns. I offer a non-judgmental, supportive environment for you to express your full experience. I want you to feel safe knowing that you are being listened to and valued. Together, we can process, develop coping methods, and grow your inner strength to face what challenges have caused you to feel distress or concern. Note: See my COVID19 message.

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.
