I enjoy working with individuals, couples, groups and families. My treatment approach is to provide support and insight to help clients address current life challenges and long standing issues. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as a primary intervention and skills training for those clients seeking solutions for issues related to emotional regulation, interpersonal communication breakdowns and difficulties in managing stress and personal balance. In addition to being a DBT Therapist, I am also a Cinema Therapist and provide groups that use film stories as a metaphorical approach to creating group process.

Maybe little things feel more frustrating or overwhelming than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. Even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge your life--it's to listen, help you understand root causes of your issues, and teach you practical tools to change your life.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
