Congratulations for taking a step towards creating change. Finding a therapist can be challenging and it is important to find one who is right for you. I offer a free introductory session which we use to get to know each other. Clients often come into my office feeling hopeless or nervous, but usually leave feeling more hopeful and relaxed. I love to see people grow and thrive with the support of therapy. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative. In our work together we draw on your strengths and wisdom and my goal is to empower you to create a more joyful and fulfilling life.
I have helped people change negative patterns, heal trauma, anxiety, depression, and repair relationships. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups. In addition to psychotherapy my background includes meditation, nutrition and weight loss. I have ongoing groups focusing on chronic illness, stress reduction, and anxiety. Please ask if interested.
Using Attachment-based therapy, Hakomi (mindfulness -based somatic therapy), Gestalt, Brainspotting, DBT, Non-Violent Communication, Positive Psychology and other techniques, I tailor the session to your specific needs. I am currently not accepting insurance, but I can offer you a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
