About

"At the center of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." -Lao Tzu. I believe this to be true for all individuals, though depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms can obscure this understanding, leaving us lost and confused along the way. I work with individuals and couples who have deviated from or lost sight of their values, and are looking for guidance in defining and living a life of peace and purpose.
I specialize in mindfulness- and compassion-based interventions, particularly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). However, I have been formally trained in traditional CBT, DBT, trauma-focused interventions (CPT & PE), CBASP for chronic depression, and Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy. I work carefully to tailor the approach to your vision and goals.
Life is hard, and suffering is an inherent part of our humanity. But you needn't bear these struggles alone or with self-judgment. If you're looking to find meaning and engage fully with life in a self-compassionate and mindful way, I would be honored to walk alongside you in that journey.
