Anxiety and depression problems can significantly impact your life and prevent you from reaching your true potential. As an experienced psychotherapist, I help my adult and adolescent clients overcome these problems and take back their lives. I understand the fear, lack of motivation, mistrust, hyper-vigilance, hopelessness, sadness, and other suffering these problems create. We will work together, using evidence-based practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness -Based (MBCT) to reduce or eliminate these symptoms.

Whether facing depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, trauma or struggling with life transitions or addiction, the healing process begins just the same: right where we are.

My approach focuses on using strengths-based and mindfulness -based approaches to healing.
The foundation of a therapeutic relationship depends on empathy and connection. I work to establish a supportive, non-judgemental space for individuals to focus on growth and healing. My practice emphasizes collaboration, recognizing the client as the expert of their own experience. Although I’ve worked with a variety of people, I enjoy working with women navigating changes across the lifespan, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and those experiencing concerns surrounding anxiety and depression, trauma, stress, and grief and loss. I support clients in building on their current strengths and means of coping.

TELEMEDICINE-enabled practice. I see counseling as a collaborative process. My approach is mindfulness -based. The idea is to become aware of how you think, feel and behave in order to overcome problems and live life more fully. I believe that learning to see yourself and others with compassion leads to well-being and meaning in life. I have 20+ years of clinical experience, and an active, engaging counseling style. My approach to treating perfectionism was empirically validated to be effective by an independent research team. As a speaker, I conducted numerous domestic and international workshops.

I am a certified yoga instructor in addition to a licensed clinician, and incorporate elements of yoga, mindfulness , and meditation into my work with clients when interest or need is expressed.
Ideally, I am committed to helping others who are committed to themselves, and to those who are willing to courageously embark on a journey to become the best version of themselves they can possibly be. Clients come to me with a variety of concerns, and I function from an integrative approach to meet clients wherever they may be. It is my strong belief that concerns don't define people; identity is a verb.

I treat children, adolescents, and families since 2006, and create an inviting, judgement-free environment to explore change using existential, humanistic, and mindfulness approaches.
"Just because you are struggling does not mean you are failing." I believe in this statement and approach my clients, so they can create a process that leads to change. This opens the door to my client's awareness and understanding of their emotions and behaviors. I approach my clients with positivity and warmth to ensure the creation of relationships based on trust and respect.

I am a Certified EMDR Therapist, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teacher and am trained in Ego State and Internal Family Systems.
Your distressing emotions may be what bring you to therapy, but they can also be a doorway to hope, curiosity, insight, and self-compassion. They provide an invitation to access the strength and worth within you, and an opportunity to heal and move forward with greater ease. I have the privilege of working with individuals that are experiencing the anxiety, sadness and confusion that arise from complex trauma. These show up as issues in relationships, feelings of overwhelm, "stuck-ness", low self-worth and difficulty finding joy in life.

I use CBT, DBT, and Solution Focused work, using mindfulness , breathing techniques, visualization, and goal setting to help clients reach their short and long-term goals.
My ideal client is someone who comes to therapy in a time of need. They might be experiencing anxiety due to life changes and transitions or they might be experiencing symptoms of anxiety for the first time and be concerne as to where the anxiety came from. The client might be processing loss or grief from a loved one or past friendships and or relationships. My ideal client will have needs such as needing to identify coping skills to get through life stressors, assistance with reaching goals. As a therapist I would be able to provide the client with a objective perspective to bounce their ideas and situations off of.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
