Right now, you are doing something very courageous! You are taking the first step toward a more meaningful and rich life. You might sense that your thoughts and feelings are holding you back from truly living your life. You might have had traumatic life experience(s) that shaped your life in a way that is unfulfilling and terrifying. You might feel plagued by depression and/or anxiety, feel uncomfortable in your own skin or as if you are not performing to your best abilities. I want to commend you for taking this step and I would feel honored to be on this journey with you, helping you live a more satisfying, engaged and full life.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is an evidence-based treatment based on ancient mindfulness practices and modern approaches to creating a new, healthy relationship with yourself in order to move toward what truly matters to you. I also utilize EMDR, somatic-based, compassion-focused and trauma-focused therapies to help in the healing process. VIRTUAL ONLY
I offer a warm, relational approach and see therapy as a safe place to exploring your experiences, to broaden your perspective and move toward changes that will make life more meaningful for you. I will embark on this journey and walk alongside you, both supporting you as well as challenging you to grow and create a fulfilling life.
