I provide modern psychotherapy for teens and adults. I help you develop compassion for yourself and your pain, and align your life with your values.
I primarily work with a type of therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which uses mindfulness, values and acceptance to create lasting change.
I bring to counseling experience as a parent, partner, mindfulness practitioner and possibly most importantly a sense of humor.
Things that are important to me as a person and interest areas:
Social Justice, Anti-Racism and being my best LGBTQ+ ally
Personal values that are key for me: compassion, courage, peace, adventure, laughter, love and connection.
Mindfulness and meditation
Heart rate variability biofeedback & resonance breathing
Education and the empowerment it can bring
