Through therapy you will be able to better understand and manage your feelings. I will teach you tools to help you better cope with your challenges and improve your relationships. We will set your goals together and start working towards them right away, you determining the pace. My goal is to get you on the road to success as quickly as possible, but making sure you get the help you need.

My first and most important priority will be to make you feel comfortable to share with me, to make you feel accepted and understood. I believe that connection between therapist and client is one of the most crucial factors in therapy. With the right connection, trust can be established and progress will be made.

I am trained in several therapeutic techniques and will employ whichever one fits best with your style of learning and comfort level. I use talk therapy as my base, provide unconditional love, non-judgement and understanding. Then, I infuse Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques. Treatment is mostly short term and solution focused, with high success rates.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Have you ever heard the saying: "it's not what happens to you but what you make out of it"? This is the premise of CBT, helping clients change unhelpful thinking and unhelpful behaviors to create a change in mood and feelings. It is a very dynamic model, drawing from many other therapeutic modalities such as mindfulness, positive psychology, solution-focused therapy, and more.  

 

 

What is Mindfulness 

The practice of mindfulness, being fully aware of and present in the moment, can help you cope with feelings of anxiety, depression, and stress. Being mindful means you are able to clear your mind of worries and unhelpful thoughts, and just be present. Mindfulness techniques can be taught and practiced and will benefit you in many amazing ways.
