I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who believes that the simple act of talking about a problem is valuable. My goal is to help people clarify, understand, and come to terms with a variety of issues that cause them to be unhappy with life. I provide a nurturing, non-judgmental approach geared towards assisting children, adolescents, adults, and families in forming and achieving the outcomes they desire. My passion is to help people increase their happiness by creating a rich and meaningful lives.
I use evidence based methods in order to provide you research proven guidance. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies mixed in different ways with commitment and behavior change strategies to increase psychological flexibility.
I use mindfulness to increase awareness, clarity, and acceptance of life experiences. Using mindfulness for breathing, body sensations and daily activities, we learn to be mindful of our thoughts and feelings, to become aware, and more accepting. This results in less distress, increased functioning and the ability to enjoy life.
