My Approach & Focus

I counsel motivated adults to develop behavioral skills to change unhelpful/unhealthy behaviors, reduce mental health symptoms, and improve relationships and communication – To be more skilled, flexible-minded, and stress-hardy.

Increasing Awareness ā€“ Flexible Mindset

Increasing awareness and being more mindful enables us to control our minds versus our minds controlling us - a core skill needed for focus and helps with anxiety, overwhelm, and behavioral control - being present in the moment with what is.

Managing Difficult Emotions & Impulses

Understanding and responding to strong emotions in a healthy non-reactive way helps prevent unwanted and unintended behaviors, such as angry outbursts, hurtful remarks, and emotional shutdowns that cause negative fall-out and create regret and suffering.

Reducing Vulnerability to Distress

Reducing vulnerability to distress through building resilience and learning to calm oneself helps us make it through emotional incidents without making them worse, reduce feelings of overwhelm, and prevent turning to unhealthy ways of coping; food, alcohol, and other addictive - self-defeating behaviors.

Learning to Self-Advocate

Our interpersonal skills are critical to advocating for ourselves and creating positive, balanced relationships with others. Being able to say "No" and negotiate your needs prevents resentment, feelings of guilt, obligation, and avoidance.
