About

Hi! Thanks for visiting. Maybe it’s like you’re about to drown in overwhelm, and you wish you could catch your breath. Maybe that out-of-control urge exploded again, and you wish you could find that kind of relief without all the mess afterward. Maybe it exploded in one or more of your relationships, and you don’t know what to do, but you feel unspeakably lost or lonely about it. Maybe at times you’ve given up on life being worth living. Maybe other times you do everything you can think of to survive. Or maybe it’s your teen or someone else you love who’s going through things like this, and you need support. I’d love to help.
I offer politicized DBT to adults, and to parents of suicidal teens. My clients either directly experience or love someone who experiences “BPD / BPD traits,” or impulsive behaviours including suicidal behaviours, self-injury, anger outbursts, physical aggression, mild-to-moderate alcohol or drug overuse, bingeing, or mild-to-moderate purging.
As for some of the lived experiences I bring, I’m a cis queer white Chilean adoptee, and I live with a mental health disability. DBT has helped me personally, and it’s my honour to offer it forward to others. Together we can surf the waves, slow the pulse and find what’s missing.
