"My approach to therapy is based on mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness teaches us how to be present and self-compassion teaches how to be a friend and ally to ourselves no matter what. I offer a warm and safe relationship, good old fashioned listening, and skills to improve effective communication, managing and learning from emotions, self-acceptance, compassion, and connecting with and living your values. Mindfulness-based therapy is practical, evidence-based, and it works. You don't have to be stuck, overwhelmed, or feel disconnected from your life. You can make positive changes, heal, grow, and thrive."

"There is so much noise around us it is often difficult to hear our own truth. I believe when given space to slow down & reflect we find the answers we're searching for. If you feel stuck, unsure how to move forward, drained from listening to the expectations around you, therapy could be helpful. In our sessions we'll explore thoughts & feelings that may be disrupting with your sense of contentment. I will be honest & direct, gentle & challenging. I will work to understand your experience so that, together, we can discern a path forward that leads to your personal fulfillment."

"A trusting relationship can often be the first step toward healing. Within my practice I use holistic, mind-body approaches including clinical hypnotherapy to alleviate the effects of trauma in both adolescents and adults. Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes, whether it's the Big-T trauma like an automobile accident or sexual assault; or the smaller-t traumas of childhood like neglect or disapproval. Smaller t-traumas often present with recurring feelings of shame, guilt, self-loathing, anxiety or depression without a clear cause."

I believe in the capacity to change and to become our best selves. I want this for you and I will work with you to achieve this. I incorporate psychodynamic talk therapy to delve into the origins of trauma and pain while incorporating mindfulness and somatic experiencing to treat the mind (thoughts) and body (symptoms). Additionally, I acknowledge that oppression exists within marginalized communities, thus treating the individual in a social context."

In one session, you will know if this therapy can help you, and it's very likely that it will. This is a new therapy, similar to EMDR. It is now used by the Veteran's Administration to treat PTSD in about 4 sessions. Studies show this therapy can transform negative emotions, significantly reduce or eliminate anxiety, irritability, compulsive behaviors, and enhance confidence and self-awareness. It is as remarkable as it sounds."
