Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Ready for change? Modern life places many demands on us, often negatively affecting our closest relationship and leading to worry, anxiety/panic attacks or depressed mood. I work collaboratively with individuals, couples, and families to address life challenges, find creative solutions to problems, and rebuild relationships. I accept Aetna, Cigna and Tricare insurance plans and offer concierge therapy services. My specialties include helping clients navigate difficult life transitions or loss; manage stress; gain coping skills for anxiety/panic; overcome career/workplace issues and creative blocks; build self-confidence; strengthen or repair relationships; and successfully move through family challenges such as infertility, post-partum depression, and deployments. Clients have described my style as collaborative and solution-focused. I also incorporate mindfulness-based cognitive therapy to assist clients with anxiety and stress reduction. Prior to becoming a licensed therapist I worked in arts and education for 12 years; I continue to lead trainings/workshops and serve as adjunct faculty at USD.
