My therapeutic approach is a strength based, mindfulness centered approach to therapy. I draw on my education in Contemplative Psychotherapy, Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral therapy as well as my diverse professional and life experiences.
My belief is that individuals are “whole” human beings, with wisdom, compassion and clarity as their foundation, and not broken and in need of repair. While it is possible, and even likely, that this wisdom and clarity is obscured, it is always with us, and accessible in each moment. I believe that it is my job to support my clients in removing the obstacles from their lives that impact their ability to find the happiness they desire.
My clients have said that I have a direct but compassionate approach to my work. My ability to unite these two approaches, creates an environment where deep therapeutic work can be accomplished in a nurturing and supportive environment, without spending many years in therapy.
