About this Service

If you are seeking therapy, you have already been working so hard! It’s time to try something different. I practice a therapy focusing on mindful awareness and living in the present; fully and peacefully experiencing life. As a result, clients experience symptom reduction and improvement in functioning. This therapy emphasizes values, forgiveness, acceptance, compassion, living in the present moment, and accessing a transcendent sense of self. This practice can often help people who have been unsuccessful with therapy in the past, have had a return of symptoms after repeated therapy, or are reluctant to engage in the therapeutic process.

Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a mindfulness-based therapy, has been effective with a range of clinical conditions. ACT assumes that the psychological processes of a normal human mind are often destructive and create suffering. Symptom reduction is not a goal of ACT, but rather to live fully, peacefully in the moment.

Many people find relief from anger, anxiety, depression, substance or food cravings, and improved communication and connection in their relationships through this process. They also develop an improved relationship with themselves and an increased sense of peace and well-being.

My aim is to provide you strategic tools that will allow you to quickly and permanently assist you in changing how you experience your circumstances and stressors, as well as improve your interactions with others.

I look forward to working with you!
