About Mindful Psychotherapy

With compassion, acceptance and a warm sense of humor, I help clients clarify their vision

for their lives and take the steps to manifest that vision. I specialize in helping people recover from trauma and anxiety, improve their relationships and navigate difficult life transitions.

I founded Mindful Psychotherapy, LLC in 2007 to provide people with the best-researched, most effective therapy techniques, in order to help them improve as quickly as possible. My practice has been very successful, and I am very grateful to the numerous clients who have come through my door, trusted me with their innermost feelings, and done the work to transform their lives.

This past year, I have decided to embark on a new venture, while maintaining my existing therapy practice.

I am creating online courses to bring the best of CBT, EMDR and mindfulness to people in a low-cost, efficient manner in order to help them improve their lives. 

These courses can be utilized in conjunction with therapy or on a self-help basis. I will be utilizing these courses with existing clients, so they can do more work outside of the therapy session if they choose, and thereby lower the cost and improve the efficiency of therapy.
