About My Clients

Are high levels of anxiety and work pressure causing you to feel irritable and impatient? Are you tired of feeling chronically rushed, tense, and fatigued? Mindfulness and somatic therapy for anxiety will empower you with effective techniques to reduce anxiety and increase your emotional peace. The extreme pressure you experience is unsustainable, and it’s keeping you from feeling the essential joys of life that come from secure personal relationships and meaningful leisure activities.

My Background and Approach

Together in therapy, I’ll help you understand the factors that lead to anxiety and fatigue. And I’ll make sure you get good at using new skills to reduce anxiety and reduce the unhealthy coping habits you usually turn to. By the end of therapy, you’ll feel more relaxed and focused at work, and more emotionally poised to connect with people in your life. With 12 years of experience as a therapist treating anxiety, and 17 years of mindfulness training and experience, I’ll help you understand the various factors that cause your anxiety. And I’ll recommend skills and techniques supported by brain science to best suit your unique needs. In therapy sessions, I’ll make sure you feel gently attended to and at ease to share your innermost thoughts and emotions. My style is warm, supportive, and highly collaborative. It’s vital for you to choose a therapist you feel comfortable talking with, so I invite you to use my "book online" feature on my website to schedule a free intro phone call today.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In the therapy room, my principal aim is to honor and encourage your unique values, viewpoints, and personality qualities. As a skilled facilitator of therapeutic experiences, I guide you to understand yourself better so you feel empowered to decide which steps you will take to re-create your life in new, more fulfilling ways. I aim to understand your unique strengths, challenges, and cultural influences as much as possible, so that we can formulate treatment strategies that work! Therapy, for many people, is more about finding new ways to overcome oppressive societal forces, than it is about overcoming what is personally “wrong” with them.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
