Hello! I provide a safe and accepting space for anyone looking to make their mental health a priority in person and Telehealth.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Pasadena, CA
Supervised by Dr. Melissa Springstead MFT
Having experienced family caregiver stress and burnout firsthand I am very knowledgable in tools and practices to protect you and your self care practice. There are a lot of resources out there, and I am familiar with many of them. Would love to help you with coping with the daily stress of caregiving.
I am EMDR trained through EMDRIA.org. EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
Anxiety can be difficult to experience, especially when your network is people who do not understand your anxiety. Providing a safe and accepting space for you to process your anxiety is the first step to help managing it. I am also a certified yoga, meditation and mindfulness teacher. I know and can teach you many coping tools when you anxiety is arresting your ability to live life peacefully.
Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is a type of psychotherapy that involves a combination of cognitive therapy, meditation, and the cultivation of a present-oriented, non-judgmental attitude called mindfulness. I received my Yoga and Meditation Teacher certificate in 2016. I am trained in Young & Healthy's art based mindfulness program for school aged children and utilize meditation and art therapy in sessions with adults and children.
I use Narrative Therapy where we will work together deconstructing a problematic story collected through the events of your life. Narrative Therapy will help re-author your story and practice externalization. Externalization which separates you from the problem, creates endless capabilities and empowerment for change.
I also use EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, which helps people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. I look forward to meeting you and working with you on your healing journey and therapy goals. www.emdria.org
