About

Do you want to feel better about your self and improve your relationships with others? My approach is grounded in Humanistic/Existential psychology and incorporates Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfulness-based techniques. Combining these approaches, the goal is to create a non-judgmental "curious" understanding about your emotions and yourself as a whole. It is my hope that you find acceptance for your emotions and all parts of yourself. We will also identify reactive thoughts and behaviors and replace them with intentional responses. Through intentional living, you can create and live a life that is meaningful with profound connections to others.
Mindful approaches help you to tune into your internal experiences; increase your awareness of your thoughts and feelings - both physical and emotional. Cognitive Therapy seeks to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be interfering with your desired goals and provides you with strategies to alter these in productive ways.
