My clients can learn ways to understand their struggles, learn various skills to cope with difficulties and improve their life, and build compassion for themselves and others around them.
Psychotherapy is a journey of partnership that is built on compassion, respect, collaboration, communication, and the shared commitment for growth. I strive to customize my approaches to meet each individual's unique needs in their life situations.
explore how your feelings of anxiety, depression, and stress impact your daily functioning. We will use different tools to help you develop new ways of understanding and reacting to life stressors.
Through gentle exploration and skill building, you will be guided to a place of understanding, acceptance, and compassion for where you are in your journey and how you got here. I like to use CBT, DBT, ACT, and mindfulness-based interventions.
The goals for therapy can range from the relief of your symptoms to making significant life changes. The process of therapy includes developing skills to address your emotions, thoughts, core beliefs, and habits.
My framework to therapy is holistic health taking into account your mental, emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual well-being. My therapy methods are based on the best evidence-based practices in the research and training of psychologists.
Let me help YOU get unstuck. What I have found through my years of experience is that changes in life (i.e. both wanted and unwanted) can be difficult. I can help you navigate those bumps, so you start seeing the growth within YOU.
I focus on mindfulness and acceptance. That doesn't mean we sit idly by. It means we practice self-compassion, set realistic goals for where we are in life, and make time for self. This is essential for women, as caring for others can wear us down.
1. We will explore current concerns and difficulties. 2. We will clarify what you want for yourself - the ideal life you envision. 3. We will work collaboratively on a plan to move you toward your ideal life.
I work collaboratively on clarifying values behind your behaviors, finding motivators for change, and increasing self-acceptance and confidence. We can reconcile with the past, live in the present, and plan for an intentional future.
