Issues I Can Help You With

My Style of Therapy

I believe therapy is most effective when it is goal-oriented and active. I consider my approach to be compassionate yet challenging.  I will encourage you to gently move, breathe deep and reflect between sessions.

I specialize in somatic (body-based) modalities that will help you to feel calm inside and out. I will help you manage symptoms and learn how to bring the body and nervous system back to balance. I have found this approach to be particularly helpful for survivors of trauma, as it helps to restore the body to a balanced state, where healing can occur. 

“Attention to the human body brings healing and regeneration. Through awareness of the human body we remember who we really are.” ~ Jack Kornfield

I will help you become aware of your patterns of problematic thinking and “stuck points.” I teach a variety of basic, intermediate and advanced self awareness techniques that come from the traditions of iRest, created by Richard Miller Ph.D., Trauma Informed Yoga, Mindful Self Compassion and traditional cognitive behavioral therapies.  

Mindfulness Therapy

Mindfulness therapy is a therapeutic approach that is based in Buddhist philosophy, but is non-spiritual in practice. It is an approach to life that involves slowing down and living in the present moment.

Modalities such as meditation and yoga cultivate a sense of mindfulness and can be incorporated into our lives in simple ways, such as how we approach our morning routines. For example, we can learn to be more thoughtful, pay attention to bodily sensations, and witness and verbalize our emotions. 

Mindfulness has been shown to improve many mental health problems, including anxiety, depression and trauma. We learn to relate to our experiences differently.  For example, we can discover we don’t have to be reactive or overwhelmed by our emotions, rather, we can become aware of our own ability to stay calm in difficult situations, to sit with our fears and not be swept up by them.
