About

"I'm a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who specializes in providing quality behavioral health services to adolescents 16 years old and up and adults. I have an extensive background working with mood dysregulation, anxiety, chronic mental illness, personality struggles, case management services, and depression. After many years of working in community mental health settings, I have transitioned into private practice."
"I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and my approach to treatment is individualized. DBT is a type of therapy that discusses learned views and assumptions while teaching people skills to better cope with life situations. It's a step by step process to living a happier and more productive life."
"CBT looks at changing views of self, others, and the world, as well as thinking tendencies, distressing emotions, and unhelpful behaviors. In addition, I'm well versed in Motivational Interviewing and Stages of Change. This therapeutic approach to treatment fosters an increase in internal motivation and helps people make positive life changes."
