My approach to therapy is mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral, with a strong emphasis on Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT). The primary processes of ACT are:
Acceptance of thoughts and feelings
Defusion from thoughts
Finding the self behind your thoughts and feelings
Determining your values
Committing to action in service of your values
My style is engaging and supportive. I view our relationship as a partnership.
I am married with two children and have had two career changes. I have experienced a wide variety of life stressors and have sought help when needed. I believe that these experiences have provided me with empathy, perspective and coping skills that I can use to help you.
