About

Do you experience depression, anxiety, or have trouble with powerful emotions, that seem to interfere with your life goals? You will benefit from my approach to therapy. Perhaps, you feel overwhelmed and uncertain of what to do. Together, we could explore your problems and issues and find effective solutions. I believe change begins with acceptance. You are truly unique. Lets bring harmony to your thoughts, feelings and behaviors to help "You" be your very best "You"! Please feel free to call or email me, so we can talk.
Primarily, I work with adults in individual therapy. I focus on depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. I believe strongly in tailoring specific treatment to each problem in accord with your personal characteristics. I have a strong multicultural background treating individuals from various racial-ethnic groups. Also, I work with disability issues.
To this end, I work utilizing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and interpersonal process therapy--an integrated therapy combining CBT with humanistic/relational and psychodynamic techniques.
