I enjoy helping clients recognize and draw on their natural strengths in order to overcome hurdles and make changes in their lives. I embrace a collaborative approach tailored to your needs. You know yourself best. Together, we will explore what isn't working for you and develop the perspective, knowledge, and skills to create the life you want.
My orientation to therapy combines cognitive and mindfulness approaches. This means that we look at your thoughts and feelings to see how they are impacting your day-to-day experience. Our overall goal is to help you commit to creating a rich and meaningful life according to your deepest values while acknowledging and accepting the significant challenges you face.
I help my clients find ways to live in the here-and-now. Though we may consider what has happened to you in the past and develop plans for the future, life is lived moment by moment. Through mindfulness exercises such as grounding, journaling, and guided meditation, we focus on bringing attention to the present moment and moving forward despite intrusive thoughts that may be clouding your view.
