"My approach to therapy is based on mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness teaches us how to be present and self-compassion teaches how to be a friend and ally to ourselves no matter what. I offer a warm and safe relationship, good old fashioned listening, and skills to improve effective communication, managing and learning from emotions, self-acceptance, compassion, and connecting with and living your values. Mindfulness-based therapy is practical, evidence-based, and it works. You don't have to be stuck, overwhelmed, or feel disconnected from your life. You can make positive changes, heal, grow, and thrive."

"For most people, strong relationships are an important indicator of health and well-being. When we feel stuck in old patterns that no longer serve us, our connection to others suffers too, which can turn up as depression, anxiety, or simply feeling alone and disconnected. By reconnecting with our essential gifts and strengths through the therapy process, we in turn can offer more to family, friends, and community. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients and view them as the experts on their own experiences, and I understand therapy as a journey to the revelation of the authentic self at the heart of every person."

When you have the right person to work with who can help guide you, your situation will feel more hopeful, manageable, and even exciting. You can be understood, understand yourself, and experience the changes you seek."

"There is so much noise around us it is often difficult to hear our own truth. I believe when given space to slow down & reflect we find the answers we're searching for. If you feel stuck, unsure how to move forward, drained from listening to the expectations around you, therapy could be helpful. In our sessions we'll explore thoughts & feelings that may be disrupting with your sense of contentment. I will be honest & direct, gentle & challenging. I will work to understand your experience so that, together, we can discern a path forward that leads to your personal fulfillment."

I incorporate psychodynamic talk therapy to delve into the origins of trauma and pain while incorporating mindfulness and somatic experiencing to treat the mind (thoughts) and body (symptoms).

"I believe that each of us has an innate capacity to grow and heal. Sometimes, through difficult experiences and life transitions, we forget that healing and wholeness are always available to us. Therapy is a place where we can compassionately find ourselves again through expression and acceptance of all of our thoughts, feelings, and experiences. And as we begin to heal, our perspective of ourselves and others shift in ways that facilitate long-term and lasting change."
