My Approach to Helping

I support clients in building effective skills to regulate their emotions and overcome obstacles, and draw on my training as a therapist, behavioral scientist, mindfulness teacher and coach in supporting clients to make meaningful change. I use evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and mindfulness practices.

I help people live out their values, improve their health and functioning, cultivate resilience and deepen their sense of meaning, purpose and wellbeing.

My background includes training as a coach, psychotherapist, psychoeducator and behavioral scientist. I have training in Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and CBT for weight management, amongst other approaches.

I teach mindfulness-based courses including Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), Mindful self compassion (MSC), Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and
Mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP).

More Info About My Practice
