My Approach to Helping

Sometimes our old ways of coping no longer work for us. We are ready for less stress and more happiness, but aren't sure how to get there. Without awareness of our current experience (mental, physical, emotional and behavioral), we easily fall into old ways of coping that no longer support our health and happiness.

I will support you to identify, explore, and remove obstacles to your wellbeing and unleash your innate capacity for healing, resilience, and joy. I will not only guide you to a better understanding of yourself and others, but also offer you practical tools that will inform therapy both in and out of session.

Any effective therapy is strongly determined by the therapeutic connection. Therapy builds awareness not only of what holds us back, but also our deepest inner strengths. When we “shine the light of awareness” on our lives we can begin to cultivate positive change. Together, we will create a safe, compassionate, unconditionally accepting space where all of the challenges and joys of human life can be shared in service of greater wellbeing. This relational approach not only lays the groundwork for deepening internal wisdom, but also supports new ways of interacting with others and the world around us.

While my professional specialization is mindfulness-based interventions, practical mindfulness skills are not appropriate for every client. Together we will determine what is most supportive for you based on your needs and goals. The practice still strongly informs the interrelational dynamics of our relationship due to my own practice of awareness. Whether practically or figuratively, mindfulness offers a support for therapeutic change, helps develop clarity to recognize unskillful patterns, allows freedom to choose our responses and empowers positive changes in our lives.

More Info About My Practice

I’ve spent the last 23+ years of my life developing the therapeutic skills to support you, no matter where you are in your life journey.

My specialty in Mindfulness-Based Therapy, including Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) offers a set of evidence-based, individually-tailored, practical, applicable tools that can be immediately applied to support awareness, healing and growth. In general, mindfulness tools help us live with less stress and more happiness. I am also a Certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Teacher through the gold standard training program founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the UMass Medical Center's Center for Mindfulness in Healthcare and Society.

I've practiced mindfulness and meditation for over two decades and spent over 11 months in silent retreat practicing the skills I teach and support in clients. In 2016, I co-founded Cascadia Mindfulness Institute to provide mindfulness therapy, education and training to individuals, organizations and the community. Since 2010, I've taught mindfulness and loving kindness meditation groups at the Puget Sound VA Healthcare System. As a research associate at the VA, I taught kindness meditation for a landmark study (as yet unpublished) on the effects of kindness on complex trauma. In 2018, I joined Seattle University Masters in Existential and Phenomenological Psychology as an adjunct professor of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy.
