I’m Glad You Found Your Way Here
About the Practice
Thoughtful approaches and creative strategies to address your specific needs and desired goals.
An unexpected crisis or traumatic event can cause us to lose faith in our ability to cope, making it impossible to imagine that “everything is going to be ok”. There are times when we reach our breaking point, realizing that all those little things do matter and are causing us stress. And, of course, there are the changes and shifts that we encounter throughout life that prompt us to seek advice and support in a judgment-free zone. Psychotherapy or other supportive services can be an extraordinary opportunity to address symptoms or issues that are having a negative impact on behavior, emotional state, mental health, and/or physiological functioning.
Mindful Solutions Mental Health & Support Services (referred to as “Mindful Solutions”) is a private practice aimed at providing services to individuals, couples, families, and groups.
As a licensed clinical social worker, I utilize a variety of evidence-based approaches and interventions coupled with my unique style to provide professional and personalized services. I believe in a collaborative relationship with clients as a means of identifying the best treatment plan to accommodate your needs and desired outcomes. I am passionate about this work and believe in its effectiveness. You will find this private practice to be a comfortable, safe, and non-judgmental environment committed to a high standard of care and a client-centered atmosphere.
Individuals, couples, families and groups of all ages and compositions are welcomed. Services are available in English and Spanish with flexible hours, including evenings/weekends. I always suggest a brief initial consultation to discuss basic information regarding your needs, the therapeutic process, and other housekeeping items. I see clients with very diverse chronic and acute issues, and specialize in crisis intervention, conflict resolution, intimacy/relationship issues, stress management, and trauma-based work. I hope that you find my genuine personality, empathic nature, honesty, and humor as assets to the therapeutic process, as I have found them to be unique qualities that set me apart as a therapist.
