About

Human beings live within relationships. These connections are at the center of our lives, and yet, they can be so complicated. I help clients improve the relationships which matter most, including the relationship with themselves. Through a collaborative approach, clients gain meaning of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, while moving towards goals and healing. My approach includes evidence-based practices and strength-based skill building, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness, as well as a healthy dose of humor and warmth.
I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I provide skillful guidance using mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, and traditional psychotherapy. I help clients resolve issues with parenting, relationship challenges, emotional imbalances, conflict resolution, trauma, grief and loss, among other challenges.
I'm excited to offer DBT Skills groups to enhance skills in communication, emotion management, mindfulness and stress tolerance. Contact me for details. The gratification of helping clients raise their self-awareness to create sustainable change, while accessing their agency, is immeasurable.
