These skills can help people with a wide range of diagnoses and symptoms, since it is a behavioral therapy and aims to regulate our emotional responses (and what we do as a result of those emotional responses), regardless of what is causing it in the moment. I want to help my clients move away from all-or-nothing thinking, find relief from emotional suffering, regain control over powerful emotions, and eventually, not need me anymore :)

The focus of my practice is helping people who have reached a crossroad; men and women in the second half of life who have lost their sense of meaning and purpose; young adults striking out on their own for the first time and wondering where their genius lies; couples about to be married; and couples in conflict wondering how to stay together. These new experiences are fraught with unexpected moods like anger, fear, self-doubt, and loneliness. Old ways of coping no longer work. But fear not.
