Bringing compassionate understanding to the therapeutic relationship, I am committed to helping people deepen their self-awareness in order to bring new skills and meaningful change to their lives. As an advanced practice nurse in psychiatry, I have more than twenty-five years of experience working with a wide range of issues. I offer particular expertise in working with depression, anxiety, and mindfulness. I coauthored the self-help book, Peaceful Mind: Using Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Psychology to Overcome Depression and have spoken nationally and internationally on this subject.
