During this period of uncertainty, now may be the ideal time to address anxiety, depression, unwanted habits, repair relationships, or face situations that have caught up with you or your family members. If that sounds scary, but you are open to facing your fears, then we may be a good fit. I work with adults, children, teens, couples and families, including many first responders. I use evidence based models -- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) -- to address the uncertainties of life that can occur with health, family, job, relationships or trauma.
