Guiding Principle: I believe language influences and shapes individuals’ experiences; thus, conversations in therapy empower clients to mindfully observe and integrate their experiences and knowledge to generate new narratives and skills that facilitate self-awareness, healing from past wounds, and progress towards life goals and self-actualization. I use mindfulness- and acceptance-based skills to support clients in confronting shame, resisting and subverting harmful beliefs and narratives, and changing behaviors and patterns that they have outgrown.
