I utilize a mindfulness approach and incorporate cbt, dbt, narrative and family systems theory.
Hello, I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families I specialize in treating anxiety and depression. I have experience working with LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities. I also enjoy working with teenage and younger clients. I see many people who are going through life transitions. When one is going through grief and loss, education challenges, relationship difficulties, a new family member, pain or illness, it can be particularly difficult to cope and particularly beneficial to be in therapy to work through these issues with an unbiased ear. I also specialize in working with individuals who have struggles with chronic pain.

I use an eclectic approach that is based on compassion and mindfulness /awareness building techniques.
Everyone deserves to be treated as an individual with respect for their own beliefs, goals and definition of success. It is on this strong belief that I base my work with children, adults, couples and families. For over 17 years, I have been supporting growth and healing of children, adults, couples and families with multi-layered struggles. These include; mood struggles, communication and relational conflicts, history of acute trauma, behavioral struggles, family conflicts, and identity struggles and substance use/abuse. I also have long term experience working with families who have come together through foster care or adoption.

Through a collaborative and supportive relationship, our work together will help you explore and give voice to the difficult experiences, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors which may be interfering with you living the meaningful life that is important to you.

Hello! I am a licensed therapist and I'm skilled at helping others to navigate an array of challenges by cultivating growth, building skills, deepening insight and awareness, and fostering meaningful relationships. My approach is rooted in mindfulness to build awareness and insight into one's thoughts, feelings, actions, and personal experience. With increased awareness you will be able to "slow down" and better understand what is happening so you can respond effectively to challenges rather than react in old, unhelpful ways. I will also teach you skills to help you relate to yourself and others with kindness.

**All sessions done virtually.** If you are hungry for personal growth and willing to work at it, the breakthrough you are seeking is within reach. We did not evolve to do life alone...we need support, and reaching out is the first and most important step. My approach is experiential, mindfulness -based, somatic, and person-centered. I utilize somatic ways of working with trauma, depression and attachment issues.

Do you ever notice that certain emotions can feel like they're taking over the steering wheel? Mindfulness practices can be helpful: ie.
I work with clients who want to better understand both their conscious and unconscious experiences, and how these may be influencing patterns in their lives. With a mindfulness and somatic focus (mind-body connection), we explore what helps you access your authentic self and a greater sense of choice in your daily experiences. I specialize in supporting people in untangling codependent dynamics, to gain clarity in who you are and what you want and need in relationship with others. I also work through a lens of social justice and how the systems of which we are a part influence our opportunities and emotional wellbeing.

I apply a pragmatic and integrative approach to therapy using psychodynamic, attachment, and mindfulness -based therapy approaches.
The relationship is everything. We aren't ourselves when we don't feel comfortable with someone. I understand this, and so my work centers on establishing a working relationship that fosters collaboration and mutual understanding. My motto is: "You are the expert on you." So I rely on you to help me understand your values and approach to life. When I have a sense of who you are (and of us as a team) we get to embark on identifying the patterns and pitfalls, so as to increase awareness and focus on making meaningful changes that are right for you.

My practice is based on an integrated approach that combines Mindfulness , Humanistic/Existential therapy, Attachment theory, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavior therapy and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.
CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENT! Are you living your best life? Do you sense your life has become unmanageable? Do you struggle in relationships? If your story contains themes of depression, anxiety, addiction, interpersonal issues or just "seem to be stuck right now"; lets have a conversation to see how I can help you to create a better story. I'm a therapist, but I'm also a parent and wife who makes plenty of mistakes. Luckily, perfection isn't necessary or desirable. It often takes only small, positive changes to yield significant benefits. Things can get better, sometimes quickly, if you begin taking steps in the right direction.

I am supportively engaged and interactive with my clients and use an eclectic approach including mindfulness , past recollections, emotions, physical awarenesses,Spiritual beliefs, and present moment occurances to encourage change and healing.
Life and living only exist in the present moment. Our untrained mind often causes us suffering when it dwells on past experiences, or future fears, clouding this moment where living actually occures. Depression, anxiety, our beliefs about our selves and others, all stem from these unnecessary thoughts and their related emotions. Our mind must come to realize that it is the cause of its own unhappiness. Then whatever we experience in life is no longer overwhelming. I have an appreciation and grounding in western oriented psychodynamics enriched with an eastern psychological and Spiritual perspective. Please visit my website: kennethandert.com

My therapy approach is trauma-informed, utilizing clients' strength, acceptance and commitment therapy and a mix of spiritual and mindfulness practices geared towards enhancing the client experience while creating an enriched growth potential.
"Being human is not about being any one particular way; it is about being as life creates you-with your own particular strengths and weaknesses, gifts and challenges, quirks and oddities." Here, Kristin Neff gently reminds us that the gift of life is experienced through the journey of coming in to your own being. As a healing professional, I would be honored to accompany you on your journey of exploring the unique aspects of your humanness that cause you to get stuck and limit your access to abundance.

In using my extensive experience and training in evidence based practice, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness , Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavior therapy (DBT), I can create personalized treatment.
Are you feeling down? Anxious? Stuck? Maybe negative thoughts or worries are impacting your work or even your relationships? At times it can feel like these patterns will never change and yet therapy provides a safe space to process thoughts, feelings and patterns. I create a safe environment through mutual trust and understanding. This opens a space for self-exploration, growth and development. I believe that, in working collaboratively, we can identify problems and personalize your treatment direction. With the right skills, each individual has the capacity to accomplish their goals.

As a therapist I believe deeply in the power of a compassionate witness as we navigate the pains, pleasures, and complexities of the human experience. Therapy is one place where such witnessing can occur, in a co-created environment of safety, trust, and connection. As as a fat, white, queer femme, I live and practice within my values of feminism and anti-oppression. My therapeutic style is curious, respectful, humorous, and humble.

I completed my internship at META Counseling Clinic during which I received training in a wholistic, somatic, mindfulness -based therapy called Hakomi as well Primary Attachment Psychotherapy.
I believe that through our journey of life we can become distanced from our innate sense of wholeness when we encounter challenges. I hope to help clients access the capacity for healing and growth by mindfully studying and loosening protections that may have developed to get survive and get by. This often involves a strong focus on present moment experience so that we may work with the actual felt sense of what is limiting and eventually begin experimenting with new ways of being.
