Ever find yourself screaming at your kids, significant other, or anyone in your general path? Life can be really overwhelming at times, especially with everything we’ve all been through since the pandemic.
As a mom, and a former employee of the public school system, I’ve had the opportunity to experience first-hand the challenges that both parents and students face. These experiences have offered me the skillset to lessen the conflicts that often exist within family relationships.
Kids not doing their homework or chores, the challenges of adolescence, the overuse of technology, the social comparisons, the fear of missing out, the mom guilt, and the pressure to keep up are all very real things that we experience these days. It’s no wonder that so many of us are feeling overwhelmed.
Life doesn’t have to be a screaming match.
I can help you better manage your emotional responses so you can get back to enjoying your life. I specialize in empowering teens and adults to take control of their life again rather than falling victim to a life that’s dissatisfying.
I have focused my learning on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). While completing my Master’s degree, I decided to further explore Mindfulness in Psychotherapy. Combining these skills has been paramount in helping individuals achieve their own goals and make connections toward a better future.
I received my Master’s in Social Work with a concentration in Mindfulness. I love to help people gain control of their mental health while using mindfulness techniques such as meditation and present moment focusing. During my time working in community agency therapy, I completed a certification in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which combines CBT, ACT and Mindfulness practices. In therapy, we will work toward improving our mind and body connection and figure out the best way to maintain balance and control over emotional regulation and present moment experiences.
