My preferred methods of practice are cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapy with an emphasis on mindfulness and acceptance.
Addictive behaviors are difficult for an individual as well as their loved ones. The initial step in meeting a new client is getting an accurate assessment to facilitate the necessary level of treatment for a drug or alcohol problem. Services available are individual, group, and family therapy for adolescents and adults. In addition, I provide services for personality disorders, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression and OCD. A safe, supportive and caring environment is available for you to discuss your needs.

I approach therapy through an overarching humanistic prospective while utilizing proven methods such as CBT, DBT , Narrative, Client-Centered, Trauma-Informed, Relational, and Strength-Based theories.
Welcome to my page! I want to honor your courage in making it to this step in your therapy journey. At some point all of us will experience brokenness, and our past may leave its marks. I like to think of healing through therapy like Kintsugi—the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. Instead of hiding the break, the gold honors its uniqueness and makes the pottery stronger than it was before. Like Kintsugi, our true beauty can be shown in the way we fill our cracks to help us heal. Our flaws and wounds make us who we are, and by honoring them through our restoration in therapy, we become stronger people.

I am formally trained in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral therapy addressing variety of complex life problems.
Who doesn't need therapy? Therapy is unique. It is a safe space where you can be completely who you are. Within the therapy relationship, you are able to say things that you have bottled up, you are given opportunity to identify your blind spots without judgment or shame, and you are able to attune to what you really want in life. I am a big believer in hearing your own voice, getting in touch with your values, and making decisions that align with what is important to you.

It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
