About My Clients

No yoga pants required! Sessions start with mindful movement/seated yoga, mindful breathing exercise or a a guided visualization. I enjoy working with clients who are open to learning new tools to move through life's stressors. Sometimes normal, healthy emotions like anxiety, anger, grief and sadness can feel overwhelming. Both individual and group therapy which can assist you in creating, or simply tweaking, skills to more mindfully navigate life's emotions.

My Background and Approach

No two people are exactly the same, and no two sessions will likely be exactly the same! While there may be some continuity in the work that we do from session to session, I'll be checking in to make sure goals remain identified to keep our work on track. I enjoy using tools including hypnotherapy, mindful movement/seated yoga postures, breathing exercises within our sessions along with therapeutic processing tools such as CBT, ACT.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

When I'm not spending time with my life partner or our dogs (yes, of course they're rescued!) I can be found wandering around in the woods to spend time in nature, on my paddleboard, meditating or catching a yoga class. I'm most proud of my RTY200 certification completed in 2019 and my Masters Degree from University of Georgia (UGA) in Clinical Social Work completed in 2005. During my training I completed internships in medical clinic and hospital settings. Later, I worked in the field of Hospice, Oncology and Women’s Health with both Veterans and civilians. It is from all of these experiences that I’ve developed a practice devoted to the understanding of anxiety, grief, loss and anger with a focus on how to Mindfully manage these challenging emotions.
