Let's Connect (240) 222-5326
We'll explore, process and explore how your experiences, symptoms, relationships, behaviors and thoughts that affect your mood and functioning. You'll develop skills to identify feelings; assert needs; manage conflict in relationships; reframe irrational thoughts; regulate emotions; change or leverage behaviors; increase distress tolerance; improve interpersonal skills and more. Teens and young adults work with me to gain insight and learn long term coping strategies to improve anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, OCD tendencies and more. Using a collaborative process, we will build a flexible and dynamic plan for you.
Clients learn mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, self soothing, structure and organization, interpersonal/communication effectiveness and more. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, trauma informed care and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help you gain insight and skills.
With calmness, warmth, humor and acceptance, I help individuals find their strengths, understand their challenges with compassion and improve behaviors, mood, cognition, school, career, relationships and daily activities. I am especially mindful of the ways that culture manifests itself in my client's lives through gender/cultural/racial/religious oppression
