pressures and complications of modern life can leave you feeling disconnected
~ disconnected from yourself and others, and disconnected from your
values, goals, and dreams. You may feel out of sorts and be
in need of
someone who can listen, provide support, and give you the tools to find
balance, fulfillment, and happiness in life.
I provide a safe and comfortable place where you can talk openly and be heard and understood; a compassionate place of healing and growth that will open the door to self-discovery. Utilizing evidence-based practices, I help you discover the roots of your conflict and suffering so you can understand what's keeping you "stuck" in certain areas of your life. And I help you find resolutions that bring positive change so you can reach your goals and become the individual, or couple, you are meant to be.With advanced training in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy and ACT, I use mindfulness techniques with my clients to help alleviate stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, substance abuse and addictions. I have practiced mindfulness meditation and Metta (Compassion) meditation for almost two decades and can personally attest
to its benefits. I am also trained in Schema Therapy, which is a form of depth psychology.
Currently, I am in advanced training for Certification as an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist. A lovely
Irish proverb says: It is in the shelter of each other that people live.We are hard-wired to love and be loved, to connect and be connected; it's in our DNA. Emotionally Focused Therapy gives us an empirically tested road
map to bring couples to a place of healthy interconnection and interdependence. I will help you stop the dance
of blame, distancing and mutual hurt. We will focus on the negative cycle that has become your mutual enemy
and learn to change the music to a new dance of closeness and connection.
