Anxiety, Depression, Addictions
Family and Couples Therapy
Animal Assisted Interactions
I am grateful for the opportunity to share mindfulness-centered psychotherapy as a path to greater health and wellbeing for you and your family. This unique approach has been informed by years of practice with tools that have not always been associated with achieving optimum mental health. However, many people have tried traditional approaches to health care and they are now ready for alternatives. Whether you are exploring therapy for the first time or looking for a unique approach, I can provide you with some workable options to finding your own creative solution for problems like stress, anxiety, depression, addictions and other complex relationship dynamics.
After practicing mindfulness-based approaches like yoga and the Alexander Technique during a career in the performing arts in London and New York, I began coaching executives and business professionals in global business operations in Europe and North America. During these dynamic and experiential workshops clients would discover the power of their own voice and learn ways to become more effective in their leadership roles. Today, I apply some of these same unique techniques in therapy with individuals and groups.
Working in mental health first as a volunteer and then as a social work student, I expanded my tool kit by offering Equine Assisted Psychotherapy with veterans facing PTSD and with grieving families. Raised by a mother who loved horses, this approach was a natural step in exploring the healing bond that exists between animals and humans.
Today, I have a Masters in Social Work and a certification in Veterinary Social Work from the University of Tennessee. This private practice is designed to make all of these tools available for individuals seeking an alternative approach to psychotherapy.
