At The Mindfulness & Change Group, I specialize in the treatment of mood disorders, borderline personality disorder, self harm, suicidal-ideation, problematic relationships, and PTSD.
Individuals can often struggle with managing the complex demands in their lives. As a dialectical-behavior therapist, I help people accept those aspects of themselves which are working for them and change those behaviors which are not. I'll provide you with skills to manage emotions, improve relationships, and live in the present moment. My approach is collaborative and guided by core behavioral principles to help you harness your strengths and regain control of your thoughts, feelings, and your relationships. I work closely with my clients to guide them towards the change they seek and the life they envision.

Life's journey can be full of crisis, loss, grief and trauma. These experiences can activate fear in the primal brain, altering patterns of behavior, create limitations in ones perception, lead to relationship issues, low self-esteem and addictions. If these problems are left unresolved, they can lead to physical and mental health problems as well as a weakened spirit, affecting ones core vitality for life. My spiritual approach provides clients with a safe, nurturing and compassionate environment where trust is easily built within the therapeutic relationship so that healing can take place. https://www.counselorandhealer.com

I know how difficult it is to make that phone call and admit that you need help. Because of my personality, education and experience, I am able to make people feel comfortable to finally open up to someone and to let me help them. The quality of the therapeutic relationship is more important than any theoretical approach and it is this relationship that I focus on nurturing and it is this relationship that keeps clients coming back through the years, when they encounter hardships.

This is a place of openness, realistic goal setting, and freedom to discuss the issues most important to you. I typically work with children/adolescents/young adults or parents to reach your goals. You may be struggling with a trauma history, identity development, overwhelming stress or a need for additional coping skills to just get through the day. I like to be straight forward and still compassionate, direct on issues and supportive in solutions. Together we can identify what's working, what's not and how we find the balance to support everyday functioning.

FEELING BURDENED? People come to therapy when they feel stuck, suffering, or passing through a life transition that shocks or baffles. People come for help to learn to ACCEPT themselves or MAKE CHANGE in their lives. But, old habits get in the way of attaining goals, connecting with people, and enjoying the richness of life. There is a therapeutic magic in understanding and expressing the internal parts of ourselves that feel in conflict. Here, you learn ways to quiet the inner dialogue enough so that you can feel free to listen and take action to promote your own well-being.

It can feel overwhelming to be proactive about making positive changes in our lives. Everyone has their own complicated life circumstances related to family, work, relationships, and mental and spiritual well being. Therapy can be an essential tool to work to un-complicate these circumstances and focus on making happiness and wellness a daily priority. When we feel overwhelmed with worry or that it's impossible to accomplish daily tasks we feel powerless. I have been in this field for over 10 years and can provide a supportive and empathic environment in which we can work together on specific goals and changes for your life.
