I am honored to be the Founder and Executive Director of Well Life Therapy, LLC. I have been in the mental health field for over 20 years and saw the desperate need for more private, office-based mental health services in and around the Middletown community. In my professional practice and life, I believe in and live a holistic approach to healing. I have personally experienced the benefits of therapy that addresses mind, body and spirit in my own relationships and personal life. I recognize and work on the causes behind my struggles and issues, developing solutions, understanding and healing the causes of my uncertainties and pain rather than focusing on obstacles. As a therapist, I’ve also witnessed the profound impact a holistic approach can have on individuals, for couples and within family systems as a whole.
My aim is to help you see that you are not broken. Our natural state is that of oneness. You are always whole, you are unbreakable. When we remove the judgment of our experiences, we grow and evolve. We are no longer resistant to our experiences. Life can begin to flow. Self-acceptance is a vital part of the therapeutic process. When we fully accept ourselves, we naturally start taking better care of ourselves and appreciate and honor our gifts, talents and abilities.
I will use a variety of approaches in our sessions in order to understand and treat the root causes, not just the symptoms, of your issues. I prefer cognitive-behavioral, strength-based and relational therapy techniques that are designed to address you as a whole person. I believe that this deeper exploration and understanding allows for meaningful and sustainable healing and growth.
I enjoy working with teens and adults and specialize in depression and mood disorders, anxiety, grief and bereavement, chronic pain/illness, perinatal/postpartum mood disorders, difficult life transitions and those navigating complex relationships, non-monogamy and intimacy challenges.
