My theoretical orientation is simple. Focus on changing or rearranging the SELF (the mind) first, and the rest will follow. This desired-state can only occur through working in the NOW - THE PRESENT MOMENT. And it begins at the belief (Cognitive) level directed towards further awareness. Cognition is key to emotional states. I will teach you how to become aware of your inner-mind experiences, use self-talk to intentionally prime the mind, and conscious-action to begin breaking unhealthy patterns/habits in present-moment resistance. As your clinician, I’m there to support you in your own journey of self-discovery and healing. With over 11 years of experience in the helping profession, including 3 years of postdoctoral experience as well as 5 years as a Licensed Psychologist, I believe I am well suited to assist you in finding your way out of your current emotional discomfort. With an opened-mind, I intend to continue to learn new skills and share information that will hopefully empower you as we partake in this new shared-journey of discovery through telehealth, a platform which allows us the convenience to do in-depth work.
