I view therapy and life coaching as a collaborative process where I act as a guide and facilitator providing you with both new ways of understanding your experience and the necessary tools to grow beyond your current struggles. Together we will identify dysfunctional beliefs and behaviors that act as blocks to your growth and happiness. My goal is to leave you with a greater sense of freedom and empowerment to live fuller and richer lives.
Symptoms such as anxiety or depression are often a sign calling us to address something that has gone array so we can fulfill our potential. In our work together we will do more than just address your symptoms; we will explore the context, history, and beliefs that are contributing to your situation.
My two areas of focus are couples therapy founded on the research of John Gottman, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), a systematic mindfulness based therapy for individuals. These pragmatic evidence based practices will address the root of your issues in a therapeutic environment, leaving you with the necessary tools to solve those issues. Underlying any of the techniques I employ is an approach that values authentic communication as the foundation for successful therapy. I strive to develop a genuine relationship with each and every client.
