My Approach to Helping
Stress, anxiety, and depression provide real challenges in our lives. In a safe atmosphere, these challenges can be addressed and transformed through mindful, compassionate collaboration between client and therapist. My practice focuses on establishing an open, nonjudgmental partnership in which even the most difficult topics can be explored. When we place attention on the areas of life that require change, we strengthen our potential for healing, growth, acceptance, and renewal. We will work together to understand the messages your environment and/or body are sending you, so that you may better recognize opportunities for evolution and achieve a harmonious synchrony of body and mind. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, phobias, addiction, grief and loss, trauma, relationship issues, stress, men's issues, parenting, and existential/spiritual crises. Our work together may be short or long-term. I primarily employ Play Therapy in my work with children and Mindfulness-Based and/or Cognitive Therapy with adults.
