Life can be difficult to navigate with major transitions and unexpected challenges. It may feel overwhelming, as you seek personal balance or happiness. Through the collaborative process of therapy, you can explore past experiences and current struggles within a supportive environment. Our work together is an opportunity to transform feelings of anxiety, depression, low self esteem, and stress...into greater levels of well being, confidence, purpose and more joy in your life.

My approach is warm, informative, authentic, and non-judgmental. I utilize Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, meditation, as well as Art Therapy, to explore internal conflicts and identify ineffective behaviors. We will work together to gain insight into new ways of thinking and feeling.

For those interested, I also offer Ecotherapy, which is the opportunity to do the therapy outdoors, on a beach or hiking trail. Feel free to call me for a free phone consultation!
