Choosing a therapist is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. So here are two thoughts on what to consider when selecting one: 1 • Do a little research: Set up a time to talk with at least two therapists. You may get a good feeling from the first one, but it’s always helpful to get another point of view. But in the end, go with your gut! 2 • The fee and time limit on the initial call: I DO NOT charge a fee nor is there a time limit for the call. It’s determined by you getting the information you need, sharing some of your story, discussing the fee; and if you feel comfortable, setting up an session. Good luck!

I have a specialization working with couples, families and individuals as well as in substance abuse/chemical dependency and addiction treatment (porn, sex & gambling). In many cases the depressed and anxious client is self medicating in some way to alter underlying feelings of depression, anxiety and intimacy/attachment issues. I use Somatic Experiencing, a very effective treatment for trauma/PTSD symptoms, helping the body and mind regulate itself. Clients in relationships with loved ones addicted or abusing substances can benefit from therapy to learn how to take care of themselves so as to limit the toxicity of proximity

There was a time not many years ago, where the biggest problem for most humans was how they were going to find the food the needed to survive. Now we can spend hours most days obsessing over which foods to eat, the way we look, what we wear, and what we say. There is a better way. Working with one of Kindful Body’s therapists, we can begin a process that can heal your relationship with food, your body, and yourself so you can live your life with greater ease and joy.

A positive connection between a client and a therapist is imperative for the therapeutic process to be beneficial, which is why I value creating a strong foundation built on collaboration, warmth and empathy. My goal is to create a "brave space" where we can together explore ways of overcoming obstacles that might be holding you back from the life you want and deserve. I consider the role of culture, environment, and relationships to gain a better insight into each client's circumstances and help guide them in achieving healthy, whole and harmonious lives.

I believe that we all have the resources within us to heal, and yet sometimes we need a little help. The right connection between a therapist/client can help start that healing. Maybe your teenager is sullen and isolated. Maybe you are in love and scared to be truly seen by another. Maybe there’s an angry side of you that your family doesn’t understand and a vulnerable side that is too scary to feel. Together we can work on acceptance, healthy coping skills, and letting go of bad habits. Without judgment, we will build an understanding of who you are as a person so as to realize your strengths and fortify them.

It is daunting to decide to see a therapist, especially if you are not familiar with clinical treatment. Sometimes you need help uncovering thoughts and feelings regarding concerning matters. Are you so anxious, depressed, and angry that you feel overwhelmed? Or do you want to be a more social, confident, and positive individual? Each client is unique. The ultimate goal of therapy is to allow a client to learn about themselves in order to be more proactive and live the fullest life possible.

Stepfamily life is challenging. You may very well be wondering how you're going to do this. It looks like it "should" be easier than it is and that you "should" be able to figure this out. Your loved one cannot understand why you struggle. But I do. I've been there and it is why I help couples dealing with stepfamily life. You are going through challenges that simply do not occur in a first family. Learning about these dynamics and working with them creates more remarriage success. I can help you find success in your stepfamily.

Something is not going well right now, or maybe it's been for some time. I understand. Here's what I want you to know: You were born ready and able to be happy, and have a satisfying life--that's natures way. And, there are many reasons and causes for why life turns in a different direction; and there are many kinds of 'symptoms & behaviors’ we can experience when things go sideways. Reaching for support and help is itself a sign of strength, and is also natures way.
