Are you feeling stuck in life? Are there patterns of behavior causing problems in your relationships and interfering with your ability to meet your goals? I primarily use an approach to therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help you get un-stuck from these unhelpful patterns. I also employ mindfulness and a variety of other cognitive and behavioral approaches, including the treatments that science has shown to have the best outcomes for PTSD (Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure).

Helping people with disabilities help ourselves! Learning you have a chronic illness or disability can feel overwhelming. You may feel "broken," alone, or depressed, but you're not. I've successfully helped clients work through the initial shock of diagnosis, learn effective coping skills, and view the present and future in a realistic, positive light. I've also helped clients with chronic illnesses maximize their quality of life and reach their goals, such as returning to work or school, or being a better parent or spouse. We'll set up a plan that meets your needs now, then empower you to reach your goals together.

Sometimes our lives are stable; however, there are times where we are suddenly confronted with traumatic experiences or losses, such as health problems (dx. of cancer or terminal illnesses), the death of a loved one, separation of the family, loss of work, problems with our children, or academic struggles. These situations can make us feel unsure of our own capacities and emotional strengths which can lead to increased vulnerability, and can cause us to start experiencing high levels of depression and anxiety, or other emotional pain/fears.
