I apply interventions on understanding from Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment Theory and Mindfulness DBT interventions.
Life is a journey to understand ourselves, our purpose, and how to connect with others. Obstacles such as fears, unhealed wounds, and destructive thinking can impede our well-being. In addition, our fast-paced, high stress, disconnected culture can literally steal our peace. This can result in anxiety, depression and other psychological struggles. My practice is a safe place to pause, pay attention, process, and find coping strategies to manage life well. My approach is collaborative, nonjudgemental and supportive.

My approach stems primarily from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and is informed by mindfulness, holistic health, and family systems theory.
Over the past 12 years I have learned that the change process is collaborative and requires a unified focus between therapist and client. In therapy, the most positive outcomes occur when we develop a healthy therapeutic relationship and focus on the same goals. Building this relationship allows both therapist and client to feel comfortable while cultivating positive change. I practice from a wellness perspective that states everything we experience throughout our lives is a natural part of our development as individuals. I will meet you wherever you may be emotionally knowing that your life's journey has brought you to this place.

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