Mindfulness-based therapy is an opportunity to solve problems, to overcome difficulties you might face in your relationships, career, or emotions. It is also a place to learn new skills, develop your strengths, and cultivate emotional well-being.
The goal of therapy is to help you make the healthy changes you want and need to make, to heal from emotional pain, and to learn skills that increase your ability to be present, confident, resourceful, and kind.
You don't have to be stuck, overwhelmed, or feel disconnected from your life. Therapy can help.
Much of my approach to therapy is based on the concept and practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness reveals how wellness is our natural state of being, and that everyone has the potential to reclaim and rediscover their inherent vitality, sanity, and kindness. Positive change, better emotional health, and a more satisfying life is possible because this natural wellness is always available.
I work with adults, healthcare professionals, LGBTQIA/QUEER, and BIPOC. I specialize in treating people for depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and climate anxiety/grief.
