The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change

Often people seek out counseling when a pattern in their lives is no longer working. The costs of this pattern have begun to outweigh any benefits. While experiencing this shift can be stressful and painful, it can also be the very tipping point that is needed to begin the process of change or healing.
There are so many ways for us to access the process of healing or to create change in our lives. Sometimes we turn inward and utilize self-reflection, books, meditation, or psychological interventions. Sometimes we experience transformation through the body, such as in yoga, dance, massage, or acupuncture. We can also access healing outside of ourselves through close relationships, larger communities, service, or a spiritual path. And sometimes we do all of the above in an attempt to make sense of the pain we are experiencing or to enact change.
In my role as a mental health counselor, I hope to offer you a path towards healing and positive change through the counselor-client relationship we develop together. I strive for this relationship to be characterized by kindness, appreciation, and humor, and I aim to offer you an empathetic space where you feel deeply understood, accepted, and celebrated. From this foundation, together we can explore the patterns that no longer serve you and experiment with alternatives that move you towards the kind of life you wish to live.
How I Work
My work is most guided by an approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Working from this approach, I will work with you to discover what your pain reveals about what you most deeply value and how you might align your life with these values. In support of this work, we can bring in mindfulness skills that serve as grounding anchors amidst the waves of internal and external challenges that the human experience tends to generate.
