It takes courage to seek help when life becomes overwhelming. I would like to help you get started in working toward a life that holds meaning and purpose for you. Perhaps you've been struggling with depression, anxiety, strained relationships or loneliness. Are you grieving the loss of a loved one? Is your substance use causing a problem in your relationships or work? Are your loved one's behaviors becoming highly stressful for you? Normal transitions may be relocating, retirement, new job, and more. Life is full of stressors! If any of these things ring true, you are not alone.
I have over 25 years' experience working with adults who are struggling with serious mental health issues, past trauma, addictions, medical issues, and major life changes. My methods include CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and DBT. At the core of all of my work is the practice of Mindfulness with a focus on self-compassion.
My goal is to offer a safe place for you to share your concerns, worries, and struggles. I hope to help you find a sense of calm, while building a life that is meaningful to you, even while accepting realities that are beyond your control. Most importantly, I will provide a place where you will feel heard, seen, respected, and without judgement.
