Please note: My practice is focused on stress reduction and mind-body syndromes. Therapy is based on Mindfulness, Acceptance, and Compassion focused techniques, combined with CBT and gentle breath-based Mindful Movement (yoga). It is goal and action oriented therapy, and requires your commitment to home practice. It is best suited for those individuals who are looking to make positive changes in their lives.


Those individuals who are pre-occupied with legal proceedings, insurance claims, or are identified with secondary gain are often not ready for this type of active psychotherapy.


Patients will be seen according to availability. The first few visits are assessment visits to identify whether an individual is a suitable candidate for the type of psychotherapy provided. If my particular skill set does not fit with the patient’s individual psychotherapeutic needs, then recognition of this limitation will be discussed and suggestions for what type of therapy maybe more appropriate will be provided.
