My Approach to Helping

My practice is based on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy to help foster awareness and change. I emphasize a collaborative relationship with my clients and weekly homework assignments to help facilitate self-awareness and change.

I like working with older adults and other adults going through life transitions, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, and other situational stressors. Many factors need to be considered when helping someone maintain autonomy while also ensuring personal safety and dignity.

My clinical practice focuses on mindfulness to help client's become more aware of how their thoughts and feelings influence their behavior and to help promote awareness and positive change. I use behavioral techniques and homework to help foster what was introduced in session. I also provide supportive counseling, caregiver support and grief work.

I love working with older adult women who for many years have been caring for others, not themselves, leading to a myriad of emotional issues like anger, anxiety and depression. Many caregivers have neglected their own support and self care needs becoming overwhelmed and isolated, further exacerbating their symptoms and need for supportive therapy.
