Practice Description: Do you want to feel more in control over your emotions and/or behavior? Do you want to heal from grief/loss, depression, anxiety, or traumas and re-engage in life? Perhaps you just want to increase insight and create a more satisfying life filled with joy. I can help you achieve these and other goals by tapping into your wisdom, teaching you coping skills, and helping you to identify and challenge thought distortions with evidenced based practices (CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness).

My approach is nonjudgmental, mindful, friendly, and compassionate. I will meet you where you are in your journey and walk with you, providing tools along the way to help you reach your goals. You will learn to identify and challenge thoughts distortions related to yourself, your world view, or events in your life that have brought additional pain. I will teach you practical skills to increase self care, connect with others, regulate emotions, and help you create the life you want. People often leave feeling a sense of hope, satisfaction, connection, self esteem, and confidence to not only resolve the current stressor, but also feeling prepared for whatever they may encounter on life's journey.

I have been in the mental health field for almost 20 years. In that time I have worked with individuals from all backgrounds with a variety of challenges. These range from relatively minor life stresses or help with decision making to significant distress and destructive behaviors. In addition to my private practice, I was a counselor at The Betty Ford Center in CA (chemical dependency) and have been a counselor at a local psychiatric hospital (in-patient and the DBT Intensive Out-Patient program) for over 10 yrs. I am also an Adjunct Faculty at Grand Canyon University. My work at the hospital and other centers as well as my research and teaching experience have prepared me to help those with a variety of challenges using evidenced based practices (CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness).

I hope learning about my approach and background helps you to feel confident in knowing that you are choosing an experienced and mindful guide for your journey toward insight, healing, and peace.

The therapeutic relationship is the foundation of successful outcomes. Please call me today for a free 10 min phone consultation to find out if my style meets your needs. I look forward to talking with you.
