My Approach to Helping

If you’re struggling with painful thoughts and feelings, struggling with relationships, or feeling stressed or overwhelmed… I’m not surprised! It can be really hard to be a human being, especially in the last few years. We all struggle sometimes-that is human. If you’re looking for support with these kinds of issues, you’ve come to the right place. I help adult individuals struggling with issues related to mood and emotions (anxiety, depression, trauma etc), low self-esteem, relationships, and other life stressors to find greater ease, wellbeing, and fulfillment using research-supported approaches to therapy.

My counseling approach is based on mindfulness and self-compassion and is grounded in the science of the brain and human behavior. It's important to me that I "walk the talk," and I do not suggest that my clients do anything that I do not also do myself. Clients and colleagues have described me as warm, kind, calm, patient, silly, playful, smart, and thoughtful.

I see my clients as unique, special, dignified human beings first and foremost, and join with them in a spirit of respect and care. I truly value the human beings I work with. If you'd like explore working together, reach out today for a free 30 minute consultation!

More Info About My Practice

Here are some things that make my practice unique:
Formal Feedback: I use formal feedback forms to get feedback from clients before and after every session, so that I know exactly how they are doing and how therapy is going; I am accountable to my clients.
-I have training in several types of Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (including traditional CBT and ACT) and engage in ongoing training to grow my skills
-I have had a formal mindfulness meditation practice for years, and have extensive experience with mindfulness skills training
Free Resources: as part of work with clients, I offer many resources such as original handout related to therapy, recordings of guided meditation practices, free worksheets and more
-I offer therapy online, so you can conveniently meet with me from home, work, or wherever else you need to
-I offer a secure online portal to handle all paperwork, billing and payment simply and easily
Quality: I maintain a relatively small caseload so that I am able to provide high quality care to my clients
