Mindfulness Teacher and Consultant
Mindful Communication and Relationships
My hope is to invite you into your wholeness through creating a warm, welcoming and safe environment for exploration.
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection
A Bit About Therapy
Emotional Well-Being Therapy and Mindful Relationships
Hello and thank you for taking the time to review this information.
Kindness, warmth, and compassionate support are what I hope to offer all my clients as we navigate whatever is bringing you in for therapy.
My therapeutic style is mindfulness infused with compassion-based interventions to help you meet life's obstacles with more peace and ease.
Therapy involves getting to know you and the reason that brings you in, meeting you wherever you are in the process and creating a safe space along the way for your personal exploration.
A Happier, Healthier You
In your individual therapy sessions, my intention is to assist clients in finding their way back to their truest self, the self where they feel peace, a sense of home, love and trust. I will help you understand and “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. We can work on getting you in touch with your intuition and your values systems so that making decisions become more clear and in alignment with your goals. Get in touch to book an appointment.
Creating Opportunities for Growth
Couples may choose to attend therapy to improve understanding of one another as a preventative measure, for pre-marital work or during times of conflict in an attempt to get "un-stuck" and gain clarity. Some issues that we may address include pre-marital concerns, communication challenges, conflict resolution, intimacy, infidelity, finances, divorce, co-parenting, gender roles, pregnancy and infertility.
A Happier, Healthier Family
Whether your family is growing, transitioning, or having tension, family therapy can be a wonderful opportunity to create more understanding of each family member's perspective and to help facilitate meaningful communication.
