I consider myself to be integrative and pull from emotion-focused, person-centered, and psychodynamic therapies, and incorporate cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, mindfulness, and emotion regulation techniques.
As a therapist, I find it's my job and honor to create an environment where feelings can be shared safely and comfortably. Being authentic is such a great way to build trust with each other and invent new ways to work through problems brought to session. My goal is to help people identify, express, and understand their experiences and emotions so they can make meaning out of them to the best of their ability. I enjoy working with adult clients and work well with those who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship/familial conflict, ADHD, and OCD.

My orientation to therapy is humanistic, feminist, and I incorporate elements from CBT, mindfulness, and narrative therapy in my practice.
Every person who has arrived at the decision to seek therapy has had a unique path that has led to this point. Many struggle with the overwhelming demand of coping in a world with mounting pressures. Some may have noticed that their friends and family are commenting more often on their drinking habits. Others may be dealing with relationship problems that are stemming from unresolved issues from early in life. I believe that every person is trying the best they can in their unique circumstances, and everyone the potential to heal when given the right support. Therapy can be a tool that fuels self-reflection and fosters change.

I’m driven by psychodynamic, existential, and mindfulness-based modalities, with a robust background in social justice, creative arts, and nervous-system informed interventions — we can collaborate on the best fit for you.
When we feel othered, alone, or hopeless — it's challenging to ask for help. Talking to a therapist can help you feel like yourself again. I help my clients discover the root of their concerns through storytelling, reflecting on their values and desires, and understanding in what ways they’ve adapted to being in the world. Together, we create a space that feels warm, safe, and healing — and ultimately restores a sense of joy, play, and hope. We’ll learn to be curious about emotional patterns, how to communicate effectively, and develop tools to slow down when life inevitably gets overwhelming.

Talk therapy can be combined with mindfulness practices, attachment based EMDR, and/or art therapy.
You excel in one or more areas of your life, yet you silently struggle with feelings of being unworthy and unlovable. Sometimes you may even feel like an outsider in your own life. Maybe you buy nice things, or go on amazing trips, but for some reason you still don’t feel happy. You may hide behind your work and push people away because you are afraid to let them know who you really are. This is not what you want to be doing but you can’t help it. This is not your fault. You are doing the best you can with the resources you were given. At The Empowerment Opportunity, we will help you tap into different resources within yourself.

I incorporate psychodynamic, attachment-based, mindfulness-based, and humanistic theories in my practice.
Many of us spend a long time running away from the true essence of ourselves. We abandon ourselves to be accepted by others or praised by a society that wants a specific version of us. This ultimately leads us with pain that we find various ways to numb. Together, we can explore, feel, and heal this pain.

We can also begin to understand how your emotions show up in your body and how they might be impacting different areas of your life.

Using insight- oriented practices such as mindfulness and tools like CBT we can work to bring the whole self into focus.
It’s time to start living with joy and intention. Although this may seem like an unattainable goal for you right now, with a supportive trusting hand you can live the way you want to live. Therapy should be a compassionate space for you to safely express the fullness of who you are and address what’s holding you back from participating fully in your life. Whether it's past trauma, relationship patterns that no longer serve you or fear of being your authentic self, we will identify your strengths and use them to create a life that excites you.

I use the tenets of my yoga practice to infuse nervous-system regulation and mindfulness practices into the therapy process.
I am passionate about helping people improve their well-being and regain a sense of hope. Trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), I help clients improve sleep by exploring beliefs and circadian rhythm issues that hinder sleep. CBT-I is a powerful protocol that the American College of Physicians recognizes as the first-line treatment for adults with chronic insomnia. In addition to sleep therapy, I utilize biofeedback to train heart rate variability (HRV), which aids in regulating nervous system functioning, decreasing anxiety, enhancing emotional regulation, and improving stress management.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists

How does mindfulness-based cognitive therapy work?

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy originated in the work of John Kabat-Zinn of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He developed mindfulness-based stress reduction, which is a technique found in yoga and meditation. MBCT is a combination of this type of stress reduction and cognitive behavioral therapy; it essentially quiets emotional distress through mindfulness, utilizing proper breathing and meditation. These techniques aim to bring the individual into the present moment when in a state of distress.

When do I know if I need treatment with mindfulness-based cognitive therapy?

If an individual’s mind is filled with emotional distress and general negativity, the person may feel trapped. A mindfulness-based cognitive therapist can help a person change their thinking patterns as well as their behavior through calm acceptance and compassion. This therapy can provide an individual with the coping skills needed for a healthier and more constructive life.

What should I expect from mindfulness-based cognitive therapy?

This therapy often takes place in group sessions. A therapist will work with the group as well as with each individual. Meditation and breathing exercises are core practices that aim to invite inquiry and discovery into a person’s troubled mental state. The objective is to identify and lessen negative thoughts and behaviors and move toward optimal health and productivity. The individual will see life in a more realistic way. This therapy is supportive, accepting, and warm.

Is mindfulness-based cognitive therapy effective?

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is evidence-based and effective. One study found that people with major depressive disorder have benefitted from this type of therapy; the person accepts their distressed thoughts and also moves into healthier patterns of thinking. This therapy also aims to move an individual away from automatic negative responses. This type of therapy can bring a person lifelong change, with higher levels of satisfaction, less stress, as well as positive emotional and behavioral habits.
