Every therapist is different. Plain and simple. If you’ve been to one therapist, you’ve been to one therapist.
Mindfulness and meditation are a big part of my practice at Louisville Mindfulness Center. I have found this approach calming and centering for clients who feel “scattered” or “overthink” things. This is a simple and straightforward approach that does wonders for individuals dealing with anger, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. It gives you tools for your toolbox so you are prepared to handle challenging situations as they arise. I am happy to announce I’m not the only provider who thinks this way. I have three wonderful like-minded providers on my team here at Louisville Mindfulness Center. You are in excellent hands with any of us!
I especially love working with entrepreneurs and business executives who have accomplished a lot of success professionally and are wanting to find more balance in life and find success in their marriage, family, and personal life. Through my work with them, I have developed the Mindfulness Mindset™. This is a toolbox of easy-to-use, mindfulness-based tools to handle all of life’s stressors. I teach the Mindfulness Mindset™ to entrepreneurs one-on-one, or in groups, I call Mindful Mastermind™ groups. People often tell me I’m not so much a therapist as much as I’m a great coach and motivator. The best compliment was from a client who called me “Yoda.” Can it get better than that?!
I was born in California, but grew up in Seattle and graduated from the University of Washington. After living in Tucson, Arizona for a bit, I decided to get my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. I have loved living all across the United States and have been lucky enough to travel the world. I love meeting new people and exploring new cultures. When I’m not working on my practice, my media contributions, attending a public speaking event or a board meeting, you’ll find me being silly with my family, reading (a lot!), practicing yoga (a little), and being creative (always!).
I am honored to be named one of the “Three Best Marriage Counselors in Louisville, KY” by threebestrated.com. Besides seeing clients in my private practice I also contribute to the media, such as Today’s Woman magazine and do public speaking. I am also a board member of GLOW, Greater Louisville Outstanding Women, which supports the ‘best of the best’ women in business.
I am a published author of a fun and silly book for parents to read to kiddos at bedtime called “Don’t Go To Sleep.” It is a method I created for my 4 year-old daughter that worked wonderfully. Essentially it is a guided meditation that helps parents calm down and relax just as much as kiddos! My hope is that it will work just as well for other families as much as it did for ours. So far the feedback has been very positive! Give it a try! It’s available on Amazon: HERE.
