Our brains are problem-solving machines! Unfortunately, many times the problems they attempt to solve cause other difficulties. It is easy to become stuck and unable to see other solutions when our brains get hooked on one or two ways of thinking.

I have over 20 years of experience working with all ages from teenagers to seniors. One thing I’ve learned through my experience is there is no shame in reaching out for help when we feel life is going against us. We all need it at some point, and if you realize you need some extra support, it is a healthy sign that you want to improve your life in some way. I follow the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) models to work with my clients to develop different ways of interacting with the world in order to get unstuck.

Are you ready to try a different way of managing stress, anxiety, and depression? Working as a team, we can help you feel more connected to what is important, be present, and do what matters in life.
