Are you ready to break free from unhelpful thinking styles and behaviors that are holding you back from living a more fulfilling life? During times of stress do you tend to be too hard on yourself rather than attending to your own needs? Would you like to feel more empowered with effective strategies to better manage worry, low mood, irritability or self-criticism? Coping with mental health challenges while also attending to work, relationship or health related concerns can be overwhelming. You deserve a safe and compassionate space to openly process your thoughts and feelings.
I specialize in addressing anxiety and mood related concerns. I utilize approaches with strong research support and often integrate mindfulness-based practices to help you to increase self-awareness and cultivate self-acceptance. The quality of your life will improve as therapy supports you with making changes that are consistent with your values.
I invite you to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation. During the call you will have the opportunity to discuss the issues that are bringing you to therapy. I will also explain more about my approach and answer any questions that you may have.
