Psychotherapy

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy

Combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness. The heart of this work lies in becoming acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterize mood disorders while simultaneously learning to develop a new relationship to them. MBCT was developed by Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and John Teasdale, based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program.

 
 
 

Adoption, Attachment & Split Homes

Having worked with youth in multiple high need environments I developed a specialty for working with kids who are apart of unique family systems. If that means living in  Foster/Group Homes, a single parent homes or in a new home environment, I apply an attachment approach to therapy sessions and intend to facilitate growth by engaging the total client system.
 
Expressive Modalities
 
With a background in yoga, art and mindfulness meditation I include my knowledge into session allowing clients to gain skills and process emotions outside of just the mind; utilizing a whole body, somatic approach.
