About

I have the best job ever!! I love what I do because I am constantly intrigued and amazed by new people and their stories. My approach to helping others involves agreeing on goals and then providing people with specific skills to meet those goals...yes, this usually involves completing some type of "homework" assignment because real change happens when skills are used outside of the therapist's office! I like to help people understand the relationship between their thoughts, emotions and behaviors and then use that increased self-awareness to learn new, more rational and effective ways of handling situations and emotions.
I work well with those who have suffered traumatic events and can't seem to shake the feeling that bad things will continue to happen. I have a full "toolbox" that can help people learn to challenge their unhealthy beliefs and establish more effective ways to interact with themselves, others and the world around them.
**I am only accepting new patients for my DBT Skills groups**
