As a therapist, my goal is to create a safe, respectful, and compassionate space to explore strong emotions and the role they may be serving in your life. Feelings and actions that don’t make sense on the surface can begin to make sense when understood in the context of your life story. Together we will begin to generate an understanding of these feelings and reactions, cultivate strength, and explore healthy, alternative ways to cope and heal using mindfulness and acceptance-based, compassion focused approaches.
Individuals I typically work with are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, addiction, compulsive or emotional eating, anger management and other emotion regulation issues.
I believe that real growth and change is possible…and that self-acceptance and self-compassion are key. It is possible to transform suffering into strength, cultivating a strong core of resiliency, self-acceptance, and wellbeing. Ultimately, we can learn to embrace ourselves and our lives, with all of our beauties and all of our struggles.
