I use Interpersonal Process Therapy which focuses on the relationship between client and therapist as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ).
I think we can all agree that the stages of life starting in middle school and going through young adulthood are difficult and often very confusing. I would love to work with you and help guide you through any of these stages as you make decisions about your future, your friendships, and your relationships.

Anxiety is exhausting. It traps us in our own thoughts and isolates us from loved ones and activities we once enjoyed. Depression can weigh us down and make us forget our strengths. Trauma reduces life to a few painful memories, crowds out positive moments, and replaces them with anxiety and grief. I specialize in helping clients reclaim their lives from repetitive worries, rumination, and intrusive memories. I help them recover their identities through a range of therapies, including EMDR and DBT .

I have a vast a knowledge of relaxation techniques as a Dialectal Behavioral Therapy Informed Therapist ( DBT ) and I'm certified in Hypnotherapy.
Therapy does not have to be boring, hard, or last years, I have heard from my clients that they enjoy coming to therapy and it was not like what they thought it would be. It's okay to laugh, talk, and generally have a good time while working on difficult complex situations and issues. You will be able to make necessary changes in your life by getting techniques, tools, skills, and guidance to achieve your obtainable goals. You will walk out of a session with a skill or two that you can go home and start using immediately. While any given technique doesn't work for everyone, I'll be sure to give you the tools specific for you.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

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.
