People experience emotional healing and reduced distress within a safe, therapeutic relationship with a therapist who is both skilled and caring. My psychotherapy model is:
  •  Evidence-based: based on the most current research on what works in reducing distress  and promoting well-being
  •  Holistic: an understanding of how the mind, body, and life spirit of a person are inseparable
  •  Mindfulness-based and experiential: promoting gentle awareness of present experience,  particularly of one's thoughts and feelings, as well as self-compassion
I offer individual, family, and group psychotherapy for a wide range of mental health problems and distress. My psychotherapy groups are based on the Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy model for depression and anxiety.
