I work with a variety of adult clients. Most people who consult me are confronting anxiety,depression, substance abuse, stress related disorders, and marital problems. In assessing the type of problems, people present, I look at lifestyle, current coping mechanisms, how we think and perceive our problem, our personal histories and what strategies specifically people have used to address their concerns. The use of mindfulness, learning to be more present in the moment allows for reduced reactivity, new ways of coping, problem solving, and relating to others in ones environment. It can lead to healing and transformation.
I collaborate with clients on identifying their current strengths and capacities while also intervening in such a way that alters their thinking and perceptions by teaching them how to reduce their reactivity to stress. I have advanced training in the treatment of substance abuse disorders, relationship therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and mindful self-compassion.
I facilitate an 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction clinic. In it we focus on mindfulness meditation, moment to moment awareness, decreasing reactivity, quieting the mind, and noticing the nature of both our external and internal stressors. I also facilitate a 8-week Mindful Self-compassion program (MSC)
