I highly value the application of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based practices to help people achieve their goals.
Throughout my 15 years of counseling a diverse population of clients, I have found that everyone wants the same thing... an increased sense of happiness and peace. This means something different to us all. I am here to help you figure out what that means to you, and how to obtain it.

I utilize a combination of Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, DBT, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Practices to help reduce the symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and depression that complicate and contribute to Substance Use Disorders.
Many people with substance use issues also suffer from trauma. Feelings of anxiety, fear, anger, grief, depression, loneliness, feeling judged, and misunderstood are very normal. You may not trust the world around you and may not know how to cope with symptoms of trauma alone and will instead seek to numb your emotional turmoil. Both are lonely and isolating issues. Substance use is an outward manifestation of your pain and with supportive trauma and substance use counseling combined, your addiction can be treated as well as the underline symptoms that cause the need to numb your emotions and avoid your reality.

I approach counseling through an integrative lens that incorporates the mind/body connection, expressive therapy approaches, mindfulness , and evidence based techniques.
Do you find yourself stressed managing all that life throws your way? The worry, overwhelm, and panic feels never ending. The stress may be from external or internal pressure, a life transition, or the death of a loved one. On the outside you look like you have it all together but on the inside you're crumbling; not feeling like you. Living between these two words is exhausting and all you want is a moment of relief. In counseling we will work together to create lifelong change so that getting through the day is less exhausting and more energizing.

I believe in meeting my clients where they’re at and honoring the difficult journey that can take place when starting therapy.

My clients are adults and adolescents who tend to identify themselves as highly sensitive, perfectionistic, and self-critical. They often feel intense emotions and have active minds that always seem to be "on". Using strengths-based, solution-focused, and mindfulness approaches, I help individuals learn to step back and notice their thoughts and feelings rather than be controlled by them. In addition to alleviating the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma, these skills allow people to connect with their values and pursue what's important to them.

I provide support through an eclectic approach, primarily utilizing mindfulness , cognitive-behavioral therapies, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
Making impactful, long-lasting change can be difficult. Draining mental health symptoms, substance use, and trauma can contribute to making positive lasting change feel like an impossible and daunting task. I understand the importance of wanting to find that immediate relief, as well as identifying and treating the root of the problem. An essential part of our work is exploring the past and making connections between the past and present. I enjoy getting to know my clients as individuals, assisting them in their journey of learning about themselves, and helping them learn the skills they need to live a more meaningful life.

I approach therapy using a combination of classic evidence-based treatments, skills training, use of structure and mindfulness practice.
Many of us struggle daily with issues like anxiety, stress, depression, anger or just feeling misunderstood. We may feel stuck and ashamed at our inability to just will ourselves into being "better". This internal suffering is so common, but the good news is we all possess an internal capacity for change. It hurts to feel "stuck", but making changes can also be hard to do on our own. I have years of experience working with folks with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addiction, stress and other personal challenges. I am specially trained and committed to supporting clients in the LGBTQ community and immigrant populations.

Through an individualized and holistic approach to treatment, I use meaningful occupations, play, sensory activities and mindfulness to promote fine motor skills, critical thinking skills, sensory regulation, increase attention and concentration, and build a level of confidence and self esteem.
A child’s occupation is to play and socialize with same aged peers. A child’s ability to fully engage in play or socialize with others at his/her highest level of functioning can be challenging due to factors such as sensory processing, behavioral, and mental health limitations. Participation in meaningful occupations is vital to mental health and well-being. As an Occupational Therapist, I provide comprehensive services which include an evaluation of the child’s current skill set to assess age appropriate development in the areas of fine/gross motor skills, cognition and executive functioning, life skills, and sensory modulation.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Milwaukee with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Milwaukee can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Milwaukee MBCT therapists.
