With over 20 years of experience in the field of mental health and behavior change, I will help you identify and implement the changes you need to reduce your suffering and truly thrive. While you can't control what life throws at you, you can improve your ability to respond to the present moment in a skillful way, find your balance again and get back up on your feet. From a present, strengths-based perspective, we can look ahead and explore where you would like the path ahead of you to lead. I will walk alongside you on that path to celebrate what we uncover and to support you through any obstacles you may encounter along the way.
One of the most helpful tools I offer clients is mindfulness, which helps empower you to find presence and truly achieve what you set out to do - from losing weight or quitting smoking to changing old thought patterns that contribute to your present experience of depression or anxiety. Mindfulness can be the keystone of actionable, sustainable change.
My independence from most insurance contracts allows me to focus less on diagnosis and illness and more on overall wellness, which is rooted in my background in positive psychology. I provide mindfulness-based life coaching in-person and online. Have a change you want to make in your life, but aren't sure how to turn your inspiration into action? I can help!
