About My Clients

Are you overwhelmed by negative feelings? Is your mind racing and you just can’t make it stop? Do you wonder if there’s a way to lessen the hurt? Would it be nice to fall asleep at night with a clear mind? I can help. Change isn’t easy but it’s easier when you have someone to listen without judgement, notice your progress, and cheer you on. There is life on the other side of this.

My Background and Approach

I understand and appreciate that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. Sometimes you want short-term help to navigate and cope with a particularly challenging or stressful life experience. Sometimes you prefer longer-term therapy that builds on the learning and self-discovery realized along the way. Together, we can develop a plan that meets your needs. I will work to understand how you are uniquely you, because I understand that all mental health issues don't fit the textbook description. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help you identify and acknowledge disruptive or debilitating thoughts and behaviors that are barriers to understanding and achieving their full potential. I integrate other approaches that 'play well with' CBT to help with stumbling blocks and provide more insight on your problem. I also integrate mindfulness into my practice and am happy to introduce you to its benefits as well.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that you have got this and that you matter... even when you don't believe it. We will get through this, whatever this is, together.
