Licensed Professional counselor
Sometimes life presents us with unthinkable challenges, and we feel lost in the chaos of it all. This may cause us to spiral down the rabbit hole, forcing us to get caught in the cycle of negative thoughts that holds us back from creating positive changes in our lives. Despite our best efforts, we still find ourselves dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, low self-esteem, pressures from work and an inability to find balance in our lives. You might feel stuck in patterns of thoughts or behaviors that are making it hard for you to fully engage in life. This may lead you to feeling powerless and alone asking yourself, “how can I do better?” Everything can feel more difficult when things seem out of our control. When we strengthen the relationships with ourselves, it reboots our mind body connection, allowing life to feel more manageable, balanced and fulfilling.
My therapeutic style is holistic, considering the whole person with deep respect instead of focusing solely on the current symptoms you may come in with. I apply principles of evidence-based treatments while implementing mindfulness-based techniques. I do this through working collaboratively, with compassion, acceptance and humor. As your therapist, my goal is to help you learn the skills that will help highlight your strengths, lower stress levels and allow you to live more mindfully. I strive to help you discover what it means to live intuitively, embrace your vulnerabilities and learn how to challenge and face uncertainty with more confidence. I will guide you on how to be present and deepen your relationships with others, so you will leave feeling empowered and ready to live more authentically.
