My treatment approach is holistic, collaborative, and grounded in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and mindfulness .
I work with adults who identify with an ethnic minority group who may have difficulty regulating emotions, experiencing symptoms of stress or trauma, or impacted by addiction. I enjoy helping clients learn emotion regulation skills, understand how to strengthen the mind-body connection, and learn how to cope with distress through a holistic and culturally appropriate lens. I want to help clients learn how to improve their quality of life and overall mental health. I also enjoy providing education about mental health and practical ways you can take care of yourself.

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 use a combination of approaches including The Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM), EMDR, mindfulness techniques, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and other somatic and humanistic approaches.
I view psychotherapy as a powerful tool for breaking out of confusion and pain. I work with people seeking help with depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, performance, life transitions, job problems, relationship issues, loneliness, and unhappiness. I actively and compassionately work with individuals (adults and adolescents) to help them regain a sense of hope, meaning, and connection in their lives, improving their coping skills and to manage daily stress and overcome destructive behaviors. As a therapist, I work with people to create the lives they want, allowing them to interact more successfully in their families, relationships, and the broader community.

I enjoy working with individuals to make positive changes that will allow them to be successful in life.

These include mindfulness , using one's values to guide change, fostering compassion for oneself, and exploring existential themes.
The core of my work is creating a safe space where clients can feel heard, respected, and understood. A full and satisfying life is unique to each person; I will collaborate with you as you move toward the life you want to live. Understanding each client's culture, identities, and worldview is central to my approach. Not only is it important to deeply understand you as an individual, but also to explore how factors in the wider environment either promote your well being or intensify your distress. A holistic approach to wellness involves the individual, their relationships, and their wider world.

Why spend your energy trying to cope with what is, when you could use it to create what you really want? I love working with people who are motivated to make significant life change, even if they don't know where or how to begin! I focus on teaching clients to separate thoughts from feelings, tap into their inner core of intuitive awareness, and use their own inner guidance system -- to move toward their goals, and away from old patterns and obstacles to growth. Along the way, we bring in interesting discussions, good books, homework, mindfulness exercises, and of course, some humor!

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.

You might see traces of Acceptance & Commitment therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness , Trauma-Informed Care and good old empathy & connection within our sessions.
Brene Brown says that shame can only exist in a vacuum – real healing comes from sharing, connecting, and being met with total acceptance towards whatever is causing you pain or holding you back. Whatever brings you to seek therapy, I’ll meet you there with warmth, compassion, laughter, and a promise to see the you who exists beyond the struggles and pain that have brought you to this point. My clients often come to work with me when they’re looking to learn how to navigate times of transition, find ways to cope, and bring joy and purpose back to their lives.

I am honored to be a person with whom friends, colleagues and clients have trusted to share their stories and trials and triumphs of life. I believe that our shared connections, compassion and authenticity are precious gifts to our health and wellness. The ups and downs of life often get in the way of becoming our best selves. I love working with clients who are struggling to find that voice of authenticity that’s been hidden by loneliness, comparing themselves to an impossible ideal, or even years of trauma and abuse. Together, we’ll work in collaboration, incorporating connection to mind and body to reclaim a sense of wholeness.

Many people suffer and they are not quite sure what the problem is. Many other people may have been told what the problem is but this still has not helped. These are the people I work best with. No matter what the problem seems to be, I seem to be able to help when others have not. When my clients have told me this, I know I am on the right track.

Hello! For many, starting therapy can be intimidating for a variety of reasons. I strive to ease the anxiety surrounding this process by establishing a solid therapeutic relationship with each of my clients from the very beginning. By using approaches that promote an environment of safety and trust, I hope to help destigmatize the idea of “going to counseling” and foster healing through these relationships. Each session is tailored to meet each client's specific needs using integrative treatment.

Do you feel there aren't enough hours in the day? Are you boggled down by the seemingly never-ending demands of work, home and lack of self-care? Balancing being a parent, friend, employee, partner leaving no room for being an individual? We often find ourselves depleted at the end of the day, and honestly, sometimes first thing in the morning! This can affect how we show up in life. Imagine waking to a feeling of peace instead of the overwhelming dread of an impossible to-do list that continues to grow and doesn't include you.

I work one-on-one with clients to identify relevant life issues and coordinate specific, goal-oriented objectives for our work together. These goals are reassessed and modified as needed on an ongoing basis to maintain therapeutic focus.

I enjoy supporting clients with navigating what has been getting in the way of change. So many of us have "given up" on setting goals & trying to make changes in our lives because we've failed so many times that change feels impossible. Usually, "trying harder" isn't the answer, trying differently is. We will work together to understand & anticipate barriers, troubleshoot when things aren't working, & prioritize a deep sense of self-compassion by recognizing that failing is simply an opportunity to gather more information- it is not a character flaw.

EMAIL IS BEST WAY TO REACH US. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU CARRY FORWARD HEALTH. If you are looking for more direction and ready to make active strides for a better quality of life, we can help. Different reasons bring people in for therapy which can be major life changes, frustrations with the same mistakes repeating, overall poor mood, quality of life, etc. It's normal to strive for goals and feel stuck and confused about what could be standing in the way. It's also a sign of strength to feel ready to look at matters for what they are and want to make the preparations to do what needs to be done to get there!

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients 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.
