“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination”

—Carl Rogers

Individual Psychotherapy

Anxiety · Trauma · Identity Issues · Life Transitions
Although I take an integrative approach and tailor my therapeutic interventions to the unique needs and personality of each client, I draw primarily from Object Relations Theory, Person-Centered Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Somatic Interventions.  One of the most powerful processes I use regularly in my practice is Brainspotting, developed by David Grand, PhD.  Brainspotting accesses the deep brain and body to reprocess traumatic memories and/or beliefs which can keep us feeling stuck for years.

Relationship Counseling

communication · conflict resolution · intimacy issues
In my clinical experience I have found relationship distress brings people into counseling more often than any other struggle.  We are relational beings at our core and so often dysfunction reveals itself within the context of our most valued and intimate relationships.  Even the strongest, most loving partnerships can benefit from the perpective of a caring, empathic third party at times.  Specifically, I enjoy helping couples with conflict, communication and intimacy issues.  I am certified in the Prepare and Enrich method of assessment and enrichment, which I utilize when indicated. Relationships of all gender, sexual orientation, and relational paradigms are welcome.  In addition to romantic partnerships, I also work with a variety of other significant relationships, from families to friends and coworkers. 

Coaching

vocational coaching · effective parenting · lifestyle design
There are many similarities between counseling and coaching, but coaching tends to be a bit more goal-directed and future-focused.  Coaching is a great option for those who do not feel they are living at their full potential but may still be very high functioning.  Coaching can focus on vocation but may also take a more broad, lifestyle focus.

Mindfulness Workshops

Mindfulness has become such a buzz word in our culture these days, but what does it really mean?  The term may conjure up images of yogis sitting on meditation cushions for hours chanting om, which likely feels like an impossible practice for many of us to implement into our day to day lives.  The temptation then is to abandon the concept all together, thinking mindfulness has nothing to offer us.  While I personally enjoy yoga and do meditate with some regularity, I am here to tell you that there is so much more to mindfulness.  At its core mindfulness is about awareness, being present to our lives in a more complete way. 
I offer mindfulness workshops in a variety of settings and structures, from one day seminars to six week groups.  If you are interested in providing a workshop for your employees or even a group of friends, I can customize an experience for your unique group.
