"Women feel deeply, love deeply, and hurt deeply. We just do. Even with experiences like grief, trauma and relationship problems women sometimes go years before seeking help. We blame ourselves for how lost we think we are - or for our "brokenness." This is sadly normal for anyone who's faced mental health problems. That's why you might be seeking a mental health therapist now to get to the root of why life is feeling painful, possibly unmanageable--to learn coping skills, smile more and make real life changes.

"If you long for connection with others but relational trauma is still getting in the way (even after lots of talk therapy), I invite you to try body-centered work with me. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I guide clients to follow what's happening on a moment-to-moment basis and help them finally find protection, safety, security and nurturing. This work specifically targets traumatic patterns in the nervous system and gently, compassionately creates more space for ease and connection in relationship."

"It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss!"

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
