Mindfulness Approach to Therapy

Sometimes life presents us with challenges that we never dreamed of facing. Or those whom we thought would always be there are not. You have the answers, but may need help finding them.

— As a licensed Albuquerque clinical counselor, I can help.

Approach

I strive to provide a safe environment for all clients, respect for their personal values, and unconditional positive regard.

In my practice I have found that each client or couple has a unique set of issues and responds more effectively when treatment is tailored to their needs.

My approach is to listen carefully to understand the issues presented and then apply specific modalities and interventions. I have found Mindfulness -- a philosophy and practice that encourages and supports an accepting and nonjudgmental focus on emotions, thoughts, and sensations in the present moment – to be extremely helpful.

Couples Counseling

I work with couples to help them rebuild and improve their relationship. I help both partners move away from defending their stance or viewpoint, or proving themselves right. We aim to identify and heal past and present emotional wounds that are negatively affecting the integrity of the relationship.

Both partners examine what they bring to the relationship and learn how their speech and behavior affects the other. Both take responsibility for their part and then take necessary steps to reestablish an intimate bond.
