I am very passionate about my work helping individuals, couples, and families struggling with or alongside personality disorders , addiction, and sexual dysfunction and sexuality issues to prevent these from continuing to wreak havoc and add more stress in their lives.
Sometimes it can be really hard to connect to people. Sometimes it feels like nobody cares or can "relate". Sometimes this means it's time to try something different with somebody different - let's see if I can be that somebody different for you. Therapy can be a challenge because it requires a lot of trust in someone that you just met, which is why it can be so important for me to make my clients feel as understood and heard as possible. When life starts to feel unbearable or when it seems like everyone is against you, sometimes that's when it might be time to try something different and reach out for help.

I am a licensed clinical social worker specializing in psychotherapy for adults with complex post traumatic stress disorders, dissociative disorders, depression, anxiety, and difficulties coping with emotional distress.

I am straightforward in my approach, focusing on helping clients achieve behavioral change towards living in line with their values and priorities. I provide treatment that is founded on evidence based principles, meaning that I base treatment on knowledge gleaned from research and science while also allowing for flexibility to accommodate to the individual with whom I work. I have been trained in a variety of treatment modalities and work from within an acceptance based cognitive behavior therapy framework. Balancing acceptance of our experiences and channeling our strengths towards behavior change is, I find, the most useful path forward.

CBT really works! Especially when you are working with a trained and experienced therapist. I hold advanced certification in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and use this approach exclusively. Together we will work to improve your insight, mood and motivation. You will learn what influences your mood and decision-making, and how ways of thinking and doing can lead to feeling stuck and hopeless. In addition to CBT, I can teach you powerful skills to improve distress tolerance and emotional regulation. These are skills you will learn to use now, and can rely on in the future. Let's get started!

Depression and anxiety often have their root causes in negative assumptions that we have about ourselves. Clients seek therapy to free themselves of the burden of the past. Insight can be a good first step, but the collaborative work of therapy is then to develop the ability to counter self-defeating thoughts and take steps to improve their situation.
