Dialectical Behavior Therapy helps you to use what you have and teaches you more so you can have the relationships, and emotions, you dream of.
Are you tired of having people tell you that you’re “too intense” or “too sensitive,” or that you “shouldn’t feel” a certain way about something? Do you find yourself feeling misunderstood by others much of the time-- including family? Do intense feelings sometimes leave you wanting to do something that will help you “escape” the emotional pain? What would it be like if you could spend time with others and not get overwhelmed by your emotions? How would you like to be able to handle emotions and communicate your feelings to others so you are understood, and others stay? What if you could feel connected, like you see others doing?

When appropriate I will use techniques such as Gestalt therapy, psychomotor, DBT , meditation practice, EMDR, and energy work.
With more than 40 years of experience, I believe that psychotherapy can provide a "safe container," a non-judgmental place, in which clients can confront their issues in complete confidentiality without fear of rejection. There is no blueprint for this process; together we create the path leading to each client's inner wisdom and healing.

As an Existential, ACT, and DBT based practitioner, I specialize in working with adolescents, adults, and couples who feel separated from the life they want to live and helping you be in better relationship with yourself and others around you.
Anxious, stuck, depressed, afraid. These words may be a few you use to describe your life, keeping you from living the way you want to live. I’m here to help you make sense of your struggles, build your strengths, and find peace in the midst of it all. My counseling practice is approachable and comfortable for people who have never seen a counselor before and those seeking a different therapy experience. Knowing where and how to begin might feel difficult for you, which is why we'll use the well-researched and evidence driven approach of ACT to guide us every step of the way.

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
Seeking and engaging in therapy can be a daunting task for most people. Many of us invalidate our problems and fault ourselves for not fixing them or feeling better immediately, yet we are lost in the distress of our issues and symptoms. If this is the case, then I commend you for seeking support! I believe in talk therapy because it provides you the space to find needed perspective on your life, and from there, you can take actionable and brave steps towards healing. My goal as a therapist is to provide you that space, understand your life and the issues that brought you here.

I like drawing from frameworks such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Reality Therapy, and Narrative Therapy, working individually with young adults and members of the LGBTQ+ community on issues like trauma, assertiveness, codependency, and anxiety and stress management.
As a holistic psychotherapist, I strive to meet my clients where they’re at and always consider the mind, body, spirit, and environment. Each client is unique, so I use compassion and multicultural awareness to tailor they way I serve each client. I use a feminist, humanistic, and integrative approach and enjoy working with adults of all ages and backgrounds, but especially young women. The collaborative process of healing and growth allows my clients to reach the goals we set together and to navigate challenges of many sizes they face in their lives.

The work we do will be CBT- and DBT -informed, while addressing the environmental factors that may be affecting you currently.
Everyone has bad days. Even the most fortunate and well-adjusted of us struggle with feeling overwhelmed, lost, or anxious from time to time. But your dark days shouldn’t outweigh your bright ones. Maybe you find yourself lacking motivation. Or perhaps worrying has become a norm for you. Maybe you realize you have an unhealthy relationship with food or other substances—or even a person. No matter your challenge, it may be time to talk with someone. I'm here for you. Together, we can work to understand and address what’s holding you back from being the person you know you can be.

I draw from the Gottman Method, CBT, DBT , IFS, and MSC, as well as 14 years of experience as a married partner, parent and educator.
I am a trauma-informed provider who specializes in supporting individuals and couples navigating conflict, depression, anxiety, infertility, chronic illness, grief/loss, trauma and transition. One of the bravest things we can do is begin to understand our own stories. Clients I support often grapple with the impact of narratives about who they were, are, or "should be", leaving them questioning, "Do I matter?" or shedding pieces of their identity to generate a sense of belonging. Together, we can explore societal and relational influences on your story, while identifying your values, strengths, options for healing and growth.

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

How to find a therapist or counselor in Decatur?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
