Individual Counseling

The most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself. Unfortunately, for many people, loving and appreciating themselves is very difficult. If you are considering therapy, chances are you are unhappy with some aspect of who you are. Many people who experience mental or emotional problems think that there must be something wrong with them, most of the time, however, it is what has happened, or is happening to you that has overwhelmed your ability to cope. If you have emotions that seem out of control, and thoughts that make it difficult for you to get through the day, there are many things you can do to get better.

I use several modalities to create individualized interventions with each person I work with. Chief among these is mindfulness –based cognitive behavioral approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy. Humanistic, feminist, and attachment theories inform and influence my therapeutic direction and style.
