While it is impossible to avoid all stressors, chronic stress is optional. Though we may be unable to change our environment, we can control our reactions with training and practice. I am willing to meet you where you are, and teach you effective coping skills to better regulate your emotions, boost your self-confidence, and increase your happiness. I have over fifteen years of experience with a variety of mindfulness-based techniques such as breathwork, yoga, visualizations, and meditation.
I sincerely believe you possess the inner strength and wisdom to positively impact your circumstances. I recognize that you are the expert on your life, however I offer you my professional experience, support, and perspective to help you reach your full potential.
When a single aspect of life is out of balance—be it finances, family, career, health, spirituality, or community—other areas will eventually be affected. I will help you to envision your best self, set practical goals, and navigate potential obstacles.
My counseling style integrates a range of evidence-based approaches such as child-parent psychotherapy, mindfulness, goal-oriented coaching, and attachment. I also try to establish a strong therapeutic relationship built on mutual trust, honesty, and respect to maximize the likelihood of successful treatment.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
I have heard people who have been to therapy before complain that they talked on and on in their sessions, with no clear path towards an ending, or towards reaching specific goals. To this I respond, "I have a clear framework to my therapy process. It begins with a six session outline:
Session #1- You will talk to me about what brings you to therapy currently
Session #2- I will ask you specific questions relating to your family history and experiences growing up
Session #3- I will ask you about your proudest accomplishments
Session #4- I will ask you about any trauma you have experienced
Session #5- I will ask you about your romantic relationship history and the story of your current relationship
Session #6- I will reflect back to you the salient themes/issues/patterns/concerns I have discerned thus far. I will talk for the majority of this session:) At the end of this session we will co-create goals for our therapy work together. This will be the road map guiding us through our work together. We will check in periodically with our goals, celebrating accomplishments along the way and sometimes adding new goals, when necessary."
