I am trained In DBT, EMDR,
, self-compassion, and Internal Family Systems (IFS), which are all evidence-based treatments with broad effectiveness.
I am a clinical psychologist with expertise in treating addictions, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, body image issues and difficulties with emotion regulation. I teach skills that increase life satisfaction, happiness, self-confidence, curiosity and gratitude. When life doesn't meet our expectations or painful situations occur, many people become self-critical and fight against emotions such as anger, loneliness, fear or shame. It is this lack of acceptance that increases suffering.
and self-compassion involve responding with kindness to our own pain, thereby reducing suffering.
