Personalized counseling for wherever you may be in life.


Mindfulness is the idea of staying in and recognizing the fact that you can only control the present moment.  However, to be fully mindful is also to be aware and appreciate everything in the past that has lead you to this present moment.  Mindfulness helps to combat worry over future events and regret over past events that can block people from happiness in the moment.


THERAPY APPROACH – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy   and   Mindfullness

 Every therapist/counselor has a unique individual approach to understanding human behavior.  Whoever you pick to be your therapist, you should always ask her/him about what “theory” or “practice framework” they use so you can empower yourself, make sure it makes sense to you, and understand how change will take place during the therapy process.  My practice frameworks are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with special attention paid to Mindfulness. .

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

The basic tenet of this approach is that your thoughts control your feelings and emotions which in turn control your actions.  Often times we have dysfunctional appraisals of situations in our lives which promote negative emotions which promote negative or unproductive actions.  Our work together will focus on your view and perspective, what you are telling yourself about your life and situations.  We work together to prioritize what is most important to you, maximize positive, productive, realistic appraisals and minimize negative, unproductive, irrational appraisals.
