About My Clients

Is struggling with anxiety, depression, life adjustments, invisible illness crippling your life and stifling your relationships. You don't move forward due to anxiety and depression. You are indecisive, not sure what you want and don't want to make the wrong choice. A fear based outlook, makes life adjustments even more challenging. Invisible illness complicates things even more and strains relationships, because "you look fine". Mindful, holistic strategies can help you get your life back.

My Background and Approach

I use an integrative, holistic, person-centered approach. I support you to explore the root cause of what troubles you and draw from different evidenced based modalities in an active collaboration with you to determine the best way to meet your needs. Together, we will develop complimentary strategies to enhance your understanding of your mind-body connection and build knowledge, skills and resilience to meet your life’s challenges. I provide practical and creative tools to help guide you on your path, maintain your awareness of thoughts and emotions and how they impact your behavior, choices and resiliency. A typical session with me is focused on teaching you skills to reduce anxiety and depression and build resilience. We will practice skills in session and you will continue to practice them on your own. Each week we will review your progress, and troubleshoot things that are challenging. We will find solutions to specific problems use creative strategies to relax and explore.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone faces challenges at some point in their lives that can feel overwhelming and insurmountable. I believe that we all have the capacity to change and to manifest what we want our lives to be like. Often times it is the discomfort in life that pushes us to change. Certainly I have experienced this myself, so through my lived and professional experience, I know that as difficult as personal growth is, it is also incredibly rewarding. I believe that we as human beings have more in common than any differences imposed on us by the societies we live in. I am of the belief that the differences we do have bring a vibrance and richness to our persons, lives and communities that should be cherished. I love groups, for both education and support. Being a group with people who are going through the same thing as you are going through is incredibly validating and therapeutically invaluable. There are several groups listed on my profile which are still in development.
