I utilize and integrative approach to treatment, drawing from psychodynamic, mindfulness and cognitive therapy. I advocate that mental health comes from an approach that looks at all aspects of the self – physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual.I am very passionate about helping people achieve personal happiness and success in their lives. Whether you are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, or feel your relationships aren’t meeting your needs, I can help. I offer a personalized & collaborative approach to help you openly examine yourself and your life using complimentary and evidence-based therapy, which allows me to match your needs. In my approach to therapy, growth and change are fostered through establishing a warm and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship with you.
Our life experiences and the relationships we have over a lifetime largely impact the patterns we develop, how we see ourselves and our beliefs. While many of these patterns help us to survive early on, they often lead us to feel “stuck” later on and lead us to react and behave without awareness or choice. We will expand awareness of your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs and look at how they may be getting in the way of living the life that you want. Our work will help you get unstuck from these patterns so that you have the freedom to decide how you actually want to live your life.
