I think we all know life can be a bit messy and confusing at times. We have moments where we feel stuck, blocked, or just fatigued and burnt out! Stuck in the loop of the same disastrous relationships, blocked from life with the "disease to please" everyone, and burnt-out from unnecessary guilt. If this feels familiar, I get it, and I can help.

I am passionate about the work that I do and truly believe in the benefits of utilizing DBT skills with my clients in the outpatient setting. These skills can help people with a wide range of diagnoses and symptoms, since it is a behavioral therapy and aims to regulate our emotional responses (and what we do as a result of those emotional responses), regardless of what is causing it in the moment. I want to help my clients move away from all-or-nothing thinking, find relief from emotional suffering, regain control over powerful emotions, and eventually, not need me anymore :)

Learning to calm and soothe our body’s response to stress can be life changing and enables us to harness our greatest potential.

The focus of my practice is helping people who have reached a crossroad; men and women in the second half of life who have lost their sense of meaning and purpose; young adults striking out on their own for the first time and wondering where their genius lies; couples about to be married; and couples in conflict wondering how to stay together. These new experiences are fraught with unexpected moods like anger, fear, self-doubt, and loneliness. Old ways of coping no longer work. But fear not. This is a perfect time to rediscover your innate talent, courage, and imagination.
