LCSW, Psychotherapist @ Flourish! Psychotherapy + Nutrition
I am so excited to be practicing mindfulness and self-compassion based therapy at Flourish! after taking a few years off to be with my family. I particularly enjoy working with women, adolescents, and new parents and utilizing attachment theory, self-compassion and mindfulness based interventions for symptoms of anxiety, depression, relationship challenges and attention issues. I also love facilitating the Mindfulness Skill Development group classes at Flourish! to help clients cultivate mindful awareness and assisting them in learning how to meditate and develop coping mechanisms. and tools for our stressful modern world.
My educational background includes a MSW University of Texas at Austin and a BA in Latin American Studies and Spanish from UNC-Chapel Hill. Also, I have been studying Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), insight oriented meditation, self compassion, yoga and various forms of expressive/movement based therapies for both personal and professional development during the past 12 years. Mindfulness, self-compassion, and meditation have changed my life, and I am humbled and honored to share these skills with Flourish! clients.
