"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."
Life has its ups and downs and while it can be sometimes be calm and peaceful, it can also be extremely turbulent at times. Most of us have a hard time coping when life becomes challenging. Counseling can help people navigate life’s highs and lows more effectively.
You may be seeking counseling because there is a gap between what you have in your life and what you actually want. You are likely in pain and feeling stuck. Sometimes this gap includes not having the relationship or career that you want, or it may include getting stuck in negative thinking or feeling overwhelmed with painful emotions.
I help you narrow this gap by identifying what really matters to you and guiding you to access both your internal and external resources to better manage your struggles and get you unstuck. Once your perspective on your struggle shifts, and your capacity to cope with whatever challenges life brings increases, it frees you up to expand into the life that you really want.
I provide a nonjudgmental space where you can safely share your struggles in whatever form that gap is showing up in your life. You will feel heard, understood and validated, which increases feelings of worthiness, so that you can become the best version of yourself and engage in a life, career, and in relationships that truly matter to you.
Trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), this innovative and creative therapeutic modality aids clients in managing difficult thoughts and feelings, discovering what truly matters to them, and taking committed action toward their goals that are in line with their values.
With advanced training in two of the premiere couple therapy modalities—Gottman Method Couples Therapy and The Development Model—I teach critical relationship skills including: communication, conflict management, limit setting, repair after things get challenging, and much more.
For clients who need to go deeper than traditional talk therapy can offer, I utilize a cutting-edge, research backed, mind-body-relational therapy that helps us move from dysregulation to regulation and utilizes focused mindfulness to quickly get to core issues and resolve them.
I’m passionate about helping my clients create loving, connected, and supportive relationships, starting with the most important relationship we can have—our relationship with our own self.
Together we will identify what truly matters to you, help you improve your relationships, assist you in navigating life’s difficulties, and get you on a path of personal growth and development.
