Hello and welcome! We all need someone to walk alongside us with compassion and empathy as we explore the painful things of life.

We all experience stress in our fast-paced society that can be overwhelming. It is vitally important for our physical and mental health that we have resources for managing stress. I have training in mindfulness practices that can be taught and practiced in the therapy room and include self-compassion practices when appropriate. We explore creative ways of managing stress that include self-care routines.
Grief is part of life that is uncomfortable and hard! I have experience leading grief groups that included psycho-education regarding the process of grief. Grief is hard, and the only way through it is to experience the difficult emotions that come with it. We all need an abundance of grace and compassion when we are experiencing grief!
None of us like to feel anxious and often want the feeling to just go away as quickly as possible. Through mindfulness practices and allowing and exploring emotions, we will understand anxiety and why it is there. My training indicates that there is a valid reason that we are experiencing anxiety that is trying to help us survive in some way. We will explore what that is and alternatives to bring peace.
