I’m trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and take a more structured approach to client care.
Are you struggling to cope with what life has thrown at you? As if day to day life isn't challenging enough due to past trauma or anxiety about the future, navigating life in a pandemic has made it even more difficult to cope. Whether you are struggling with gaining control of your eating, body image issues, low self-esteem or unresolved trauma from the past, I am here to help you. I work well with teens and adults wanting to take a direct approach to improving their perspectives and behaviors. In my practice I see clients struggling with symptoms of trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and behavioral concerns.

I provide DBT -informed therapy, which is highly effective for treating those with emotion dysregulation.
I don't understand your pain, but I do understand pain. This is something I tell my clients. They are people who may be working through a major life challenge, dealing with depression, anxiety, a mood disorder, or relational distress. Everyone deserves a safe space to bring their full selves and share the burden of their pain. It is from that place, we learn how to show up this way everywhere else in our lives. I work with those suffering from all kinds of trauma, and have sought specific training in this area. Let me walk with you through whatever it is and help you do the work, because I've done it too.

In addition, I offer DBT , which focuses on managing emotions and stress, and is beneficial for addictive behavior.
Feeling alone? Stuck in your own thoughts? In a spiral of depression and anxiety? Feeling like nobody understands? You are not alone! I would be honored to sit with you during your most difficult times, and help you make it through. A history of abuse, abandonment, and trauma can affect how you interact with others, and can make relationships, and dealing with stressful situations very difficult. I know it feels isolating and overwhelming all too often, but you’d be surprised how many others feel the same.

The decision to seek therapy can be intimidating and the reality is that we all encounter struggles as we walk through life. I seek to normalize and destigmatize the concept of mental health. Far from being shameful, embarking on this journey shows considerable strength of character. I am passionate about creating a safe space to process feelings and explore new ways to understand your own thoughts and emotions. I pride myself on being relatable and use humor to stay grounded and remind my clients that we are all simply human. I utilize many modalities in my practice as I believe one size does not fit all.

Life presents a unique set of challenges for every individual, and sometimes those challenges are more than we can handle on our own. When that imbalance occurs, we can experience a number of uncomfortable emotions such as stress, anxiety, sadness, worry, or even fear. We can feel easily overwhelmed, frustrated, and irritable, and these feelings can have impacts on many aspects of our lives. Acknowledging we need additional support when coping with issues such as these can be difficult, and allowing ourselves to actually reach out to ask for that help can seem like an almost impossible task.

One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Whether it’s learning techniques to combat anxiety, stress or depression, or addressing and overcoming trauma and PTSD. Perhaps you have a child that is struggling in school, a teen that won’t open up to you, and you’re looking for someone they can talk to. Maybe you just need someone to truly listen and to hear you, to walk with you as you take these next brave steps.

What type of Sorrento mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Sorrento?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
