I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to best meet client needs with a special interest and training in mindfulness-based therapies such as MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy). Where appropriate, we may choose to explore self-compassion and body awareness as pathways to support your work through past trauma. We work together to set your goals and develop a plan that suits your individual needs.
By applying my special interest in Spiritually-integrated Psychotherapy, I also assist individuals in “making meaning” of their lives and navigating significant life transitions. Together we refine your self-awareness and inner wisdom as key foundations for personal growth.
I support adult clients navigating a variety of issues including: mild to moderate depression & anxiety, relationship & parenting challenges, workplace /return to work stress, health & chronic pain, grief & loss, self-esteem & body image, life transitions, life stress, as well as issues unique to aging women.
