Announcement icon I have tele-therapy openings, including DBT Skills group, via Zoom for those who would like support. Contact me to learn more. Be well.
I help people 18 and older manage exhausting emotions that torture, pressure them into knee jerk reactions, and make relationships difficult. Using evidence-based practical techniques, with a dash of warmth and humor, we'll work together to see the big picture, map a path, and manage what's in the way of getting some peace.
Treatment intensity is tailored to bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. I help people to manage overwhelming emotion and specialize in complex presentations of trauma, borderline personality disorder, and OCD. I’m passionate about helping people manage multiple concerns including suicidality, self-harm, and dissociation.
I’m intensively trained in standard Dialectical Behavior Therapy and DBT-PE for PTSD, from trusted trainers such as Behavioral Tech and The Practice Ground. I’m also trained in CBT and am a graduate of the Behavior Therapy Training Institute sponsored by the International OCD Foundation. Get started! Give me a call for a free 15-minute phone consultation.

6 Week Beginners Mindfulness Group

Basic mindfulness skills can help you manage difficult thoughts and feelings, making them less intense, and increasing your ability to manage them. This six week mindfulness course was created for beginners who want to turn thoughts and feelings into allies. Participants will learn several basic techniques to help them develop greater awareness of the body, thoughts, emotions, and even deal with the inner critic. All practices will have a trauma sensitive alternative. For more information call 925-289-9307.
