My Approach to Helping
I believe you deserve a life that inspires authenticity, creativity, connection and compassion. I know from my experience with mindfulness and counseling that facing my stress head on is challenging and can really conjure up feelings of being overwhelmed and despondent. Perhaps you avoid your stress by going on a Netflix binge, staying in bed for extended hours, or anxiously replaying multiple worst case scenarios. Regardless of how you manage stress, I am confident that my experience and skill set can help you effectively find relief from stress, improve your sense of well-being, and find more enjoyment in life.
My clients are happy to discover that seeking perfection stunts our growth and that embracing our imperfections with compassion allows us to learn, grow and heal. “When I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Carl Rogers. I believe that it takes courage to reach out for help and that this simple act of self-compassion can become a catalyst for real and lasting change.
I provide an atmosphere that is accepting, non-judgmental, and compassionate. I help people develop better self-care and self-compassion through mindfulness, meditation & CBT. I also teach MBSR, an 8 week evidenced based meditation course designed to help people face stress, pain and illness. Guided meditations can be offered if desired.
