I am a therapist and licensed clinical social worker. I specialize in working with clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, depression, anxiety/panic disorder, phobic fear, family relational challenges, and a variety of other issues. I have spent a number of years helping support people experiencing grief and loss, trauma, and life and coping skills acquisition. I also have extensive experience working with parents of children with disabilities, and professional caretakers. I utilize elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solutions-focused, narrative, and experiential therapy, tailored to each clients needs and strengths.
My counseling style is focused on problem-solving, empowerment, empathy, and healing. I embrace all lifestyles and orientations. I am not a religious counselor, but I do incorporate spiritual support techniques, such as mindfulness skills and meditative interventions. I have taught meditation for over 25 years, focused on calming the busy western mindset in a user-friendly way. I respect all (or no) faiths, but I am particularly suited to clients who would like an intuitive counselor who's therapeutic orientation partners with their own spiritual practices or beliefs. I believe in every client's innate ability to shift and transform, given the right therapeutic, clinical, and energetic support to move forward. I look forward to meeting with you, thank you!
