Welcome to my website. I provide therapy/counseling to adults, adolescents and children at my Midtown Sacramento office.
I specialize in treating PTSD, depression, anxiety and couples issues. My experience as a therapist has taught me that there is no one way to do therapy, rather that therapy is a collaborative process where therapist and client identify treatment goals and best therapies to support reaching those goals together.
My approach to therapy/counseling is interactive, client-centered and compassionate. During sessions I draw from many therapies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, attachment theory, EMDR and minfulness therapies to decrease undesirable symptoms and improve the health of valued attachments.
I have extensive training and experience in providing therapy to individuals with treatment resistant depression, anxiety, long-held unfulfilling behavioral patterns and relationship issues. I am EMDR certified and a full member of the national EMDR association.
I enjoy practicing and teaching Mindfulness to clients in my practice. Mindfulness has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on negative thoughts, worry thoughts, anxiety/depression and feelings of detachment. I am particularly fond of Mindfulness Self-Compassion which aims to teach clients to respond mindfully and compassionately to pain and suffering. I myself am intentional about practicing Mindfulness Self-Compassion as a daily practice.
I regularly participate in consultation with trusted
colleagues and continue to develop my skill sets as a therapist in order to provide the most effective treatments to my clients.
