“We find greater lightness & ease in our lives as we increasingly care for ourselves & other beings.” – Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness
I have been told that I am calming, levelheaded, caring, and flexible. I work with clients of all ages utilizing an integrative, strengths-based, individualized approach to therapy, often combining concepts of self-compassion, mindfulness, and acceptance to help you attain your goals. I believe in helping you to flourish in your life, not just eliminate symptoms. I do this through helping you find your inner wisdom, creativity, resilience, and courage to bring about change in your life.
I have specialized training in providing therapy to families, especially those struggling with behavior problems in their children and needing some parenting refresher tips (services also offered in Spanish). I also provide psychological evaluations (for education and diagnosis or treatment purposes), specializing in children under 12. Other areas I specialize in include:
Anxiety – worry, fretting, health concerns, phobia, panic, dreading the future
Depression – low self-esteem, self-criticism, sadness, unmotivated, feeling “blah”
Stress – from school, family, work, relationships, etc.
Child/Adolescent Behavior Problems
Adjustment Problems – changes in your life that are difficult to adjust to
Relapse Prevention – recently sober/out of treatment
Substance Abuse Recovery – needing accountability and support for your recovery
After having lived in Arizona, Indiana, and Kentucky for the last 13 years, I now make my home in Utah with my husband, who is also a psychologist, and our baby, a Golden Retriever named Rukah. I grew up in Vermont, and I am excited to be living in the mountains again. I love hiking, skiing, yoga, cooking healthy foods, traveling, finding new, delicious ethnic restaurants (my favorites are Thai, Ethiopian, Indian, and Tibetan), and interior design on a budget.
