Welcome! Here is a little about me and my treatment interests. I am a licensed psychologist, and have been trained in and work with adults, as well as adolescents. Besides more traditional talk therapy, I am certified in both Spiritual Direction and Clinical Hypnotherapy, and have extensive training in Energy Psychology/work. As part of my interests, I have spent significant time training in different meditation techniques. First, learning techniques for myself, then, how they work, how to teach others, as well as using meditation as a therapeutic tool. My experience with meditation is that a lot of people say they want to learn meditation, but it is hard to start. I answer back, we start where at the best place for you to start. The research on anxiety shows that the components of meditation can be really helpful in reducing anxiety, and beginning to have control of one's life (in a time where life can feel so out of control). Whether you are interested in meditation or not, either way, I can 'meet' you where you are at, and help you on whatever path you are interested in.
A big question or statement I get asked when I meet someone virtually in our first session is what do I do, or I have not done this before, or not virtually. I say something like this: It is not a problem....I know what to do and I will teach you. First, we meet and greet on your wall. Then I explain the process and answer any questions that you might have. We talk, just like two people talking....so that I can learn about you and what brings you here. We talk more about the process and begin to formulate your goals. My goals are your goals. I don't control the process, rather I guide. And then as we work together, we find your own individual path to meet those goals. We know the whole time that as life changes, so do goals. And we flexibly work to achieve your ultimate state of mind. I would love to work with you to help you find what you are looking for.
My schedule is fairly flexible. Each week I look at the my schedule an open a very small number of time slots that I am available. However, I have many more time slots that are not listed. Because of this, I have the ability to do my best to meet your time constraints, to find times that work for both of us.
