I work with individuals from late adolescence through adulthood who are seeking support and integration during life transitions. I value alleviating emotional distress as well as cultivating a greater sense of meaning and well-being within your life. I assist people with relationship concerns, depression and anxiety, grief and loss as well as trauma.
My style is respectful, direct, engaged, and collaborative. My orientation is strengths-based (identify and build on capacities you already possess), holistic (body, mind, spirit), and systemic (always thinking in terms of the contexts in which you locate yourself). As a long-term meditation practitioner, I enjoy discovering each person’s unique way to be present and engaged in their lives.
Offering short as well as longer term therapy depending on your goals for our work together.
Areas of specialty include:
- Depression and other mood concerns

I have advanced trained in somatic approaches to trauma including Brainspotting and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a unique and creative model for both therapy and coaching, based on the innovative use of mindfulness and values. The aim of ACT is to maximize human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life.
I train, advise, and serve as a coordinator/mediator for community groups and businesses. My services help private and public sector clients meet established goals, reduce risk, and respond effectively and compassionately to transition, grief and other issues in the workplace.
I also develop and deliver specialized curricula on organizational development, social services grant management, managing adverse or life-altering events, and a wide range of mental health related topics.
