About My Clients
Do you feel stuck or as if in a rut? Are you also struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, chronic illness, or relationship difficulties? This may relate to your personal life, your job, struggles within your relationship, your family, or with your health. If you are looking to feel more in control of your emotions and make positive changes in your life, I can help. I am laid back, warm, and easy to talk to. You don't have to do this alone.
My Background and Approach
As a therapist and mindfulness teacher, I have extensive experience working with individuals who struggle with anxiety (and anxiety-related disorders), stress, depression, anger management, chronic illness, relationship difficulties, as well as who have a history of trauma and addiction. I customize my treatment approach based on your unique needs and goals. Depending on what works best for you, we may utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, and the Gottman Method (for couples) to help you learn the skills you need to confidently manage your emotions and feel more empowered in your life. Taking the first step is the biggest one, which you've already done just by being here! To take the next step and find out more about how I can help you, message me or visit my website.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests
A crucial ingredient to growth is learning to accept ourselves for who we are and where we're at, learning to be as gentle with ourselves as we would a child learning how to walk. So much of our pain and suffering comes from the judgments we have about ourselves, the stories we tell ourselves ABOUT ourselves. I come from a mindfulness background and believe in validating our thoughts and feelings, and then working from there. "What would love do right now?" "What would compassion do right now?" Therapy is an agent for change. For most, it's about reducing pain. But in reducing pain, we also begin to feel more free. Think of it like a backpack filled with heavy rocks. The more rocks that you take out and drop to the ground, the lighter you will feel and the more free you will be to live the life that excites you. Ask yourself right now, how would your life change if you felt light and free? Take a moment to imagine it, visualize it. My passion is helping people make that happen!
