I am a therapist who understands that life can be difficult, but I also truly believe that we can create
lives that are joyful. Learning how to balance those two different experiences can be really hard.
Understanding and accepting the pain we experience in life while at the same time celebrating the
wonderful things is incredibly important but surprisingly not always so easy do without help. Some
people think we should be able to handle struggles on our own but I believe that in order to experience
a good life, we sometimes need help. Counseling is an incredible way to create your best life. My job is
to help you figure out how to live this life. My belief is that you have the understanding of how to make
these changes, I do not have the answers to your situation, but I do know how to support you into
figuring out how to live your best life. I use evidence based methods in order to provide you research
proven guidance. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies mixed in different ways with commitment and behavior
change strategies to increase psychological flexibility. The objective is not elimination of difficult
feelings, rather it is to be present with what life brings us and to move toward valued behavior.
