Practice Description: Are you using unhealthy coping mechanisms to deal with your anxiety and/or depression? Increasingly, the pressures of life, complicated relationships, traumatic events which are or feel beyond our control are leading us to problematic emotional states. Frequently, negative emotions such as shame, anger or hatred, or envy and jealousy, link to negative self-talk, dictating our feelings, thoughts and actions. I find it is usually helpful to apply a holistic approach, working with the mind/body connection which counsels attention to the present moment rather than dwelling in the past or obsessing about the future.

In my 34 years experience, I have evolved a practice which concentrates on providing the tools for clients to find the ways to challenge these negative beliefs and thought patterns, resist the inner critic, and cope with the emotional and psychological consequences of traumatic or negative experiences, grief, pain, or loss.

I am an alcohol and drug counselor (LADC), marriage and family therapist (LMFT), and a clinical social worker (LICSW). I have worked 19 years with adolescents and have much experience working with couples and individuals. My approach is client centered. I have learned a variety of approaches using mindfulness as well as traditional therapeutic approaches.
