Do your emotions overwhelm you? Do they get away from you and lead to behaviors that affect your relationships, career and/or sense of self? Has it been more difficult than usual to manage your worry thoughts or your mood? It can be difficult to build the life you want when strong emotions get in the way. While it might not seem possible now, you CAN rein them in and I’d like to show you how.
I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and specialize in emotion dysregulation, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I also aim to provide treatment that is culturally sensitive and considers your background, lifestyle, and values.
If this resonates with you, I hope you’ll be patient with yourself as you pursue therapy. If you’d like more information about me, you can check out my website for information on my background and training. At the end of the day, I hope you find a space where you can build the life you deserve and I look forward to us potentially working together!
