Marriage & Family Therapist - LMFT
Therapy offers a rare opportunity to really focus on yourself and the life you truly desire. Through deep listening and building a partnership of trust I’ll help you better understand your struggles and desires with new clarity and self-understanding. While a listening ear is crucial, it’s not enough. I’ll also help you find practical solutions and skills to cope effectively with stress and difficult emotions and to build healthier relationships.
One of the most effective strategies I’ve found to change your life and literally rewire your brain, is the core skill of Mindfulness. It teaches you to get beyond the endless loop of stressful thoughts, emotions and reactions that lead to depression, anxiety, chronic frustration and unhappiness. As you grow in the practice of mindfulness, you begin to cultivate your inner wisdom, which guides you into new perspectives, feelings and effective actions. When you’re living out of your deeper desires and values, contentment grows.
Living a good life is not only a practical matter, it’s also a spiritual adventure. My 24 years of experience as a psychotherapist also includes training and practice as a spiritual director. Whether you’re seeking individual, couple or family counseling, I’m eager to help you on your journey to the life you were meant to live.
