*I am not currently able to accept new clients* Therapy creates a valuable opportunity to see clearly what our minds are doing, get perspective on unhelpful patterns, access deeper resources, and move forward in a vital way.

My Approach

Mindfulness-based psychotherapy starts with the recognition that our experience is being generated each moment, and that here, in the present, is where we can actually see and transform this process. This style of therapy emphasizes connecting with our experience right now as the primary point of inquiry. The attitude of mindfulness is not so much an effort to eliminate problems, but taking a keen interest in what is occurring within and around us. This in itself can be remarkably helpful. With the right quality of attention, problematic patterns become lighter, more transparent, and more workable. We find ourselves less on autopilot - more aware, more alive, and more fully ourselves.
