Some of the treatment theories that I draw on include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral, acceptance and commitment (ACT), strengths based, trauma informed, and mindfulness.
I work with individuals to develop tools to manage times of transition. Usually, it is from these uncomfortable times in life that tremendous growth occurs. Together we will discover strategies to manage and move beyond your discomfort with increased self-awareness. The bottom line is that this is your journey, and I am humbled to walk with you during this time of self-discovery. Ideal clients for me include young adults in life transitions, relationships, addiction, anxiety, and depression.

I work primarily within a contemporary psychodynamic framework while also using cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies.
Hello and Welcome! Relationships are key to understanding who we are. From birth to the present, our past relationships affect our current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. At some point in life, most of us encounter personal roadblocks that create stress and unhappiness, overwhelm our coping mechanisms and undermine growth. Psychotherapy is a resource to help people heal, learn new skills, and develop greater self-awareness and strength. I offer clinical expertise to provide guidance, new perspectives, and to raise awareness of root issues that may be behind current problems. Together we will address these problems and underlying dynamics.

My trauma-informed theoretical orientation is grounded in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) with a focus on mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.
Accepting New Clients - Welcome to counseling! I’m glad you’re here. My goal is to meet you where you are and serve as an ally in your therapy journey. A typical session with me is collaborative, psychoeducational, and constructive with a healthy dose of humor. I help clients develop insight into old patterns that may have helped them in the past but are no longer serving them in the present. I support clients as they accept what is, identify alternative pathways, and commit to change. Informed by the trauma response, I teach clients skills to regulate their nervous system and catalyze their brain’s natural neuroplasticity.

I understand that life does not always go as planned and though it can bring great happiness, it can also bring trials that make it difficult to fully enjoy what life has to offer. With therapy, my main goal is to compassionately and nonjudgmentally guide individuals on how to cope more effectively with the stressors of life in order to improve daily functioning and overall quality of living.

Through a variety of techniques including but not limited to Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, I will help you process through life's transitions with empathic support and counseling.
While anxiety is a normal reaction to life's stressors, at some point it can lead to depression and helplessness. I work with individuals who experience anxiety, panic disorder and phobias, depression, stress/anger management issues, PTSD, grief, and end of life issues. Grief manifests itself in various ways from sadness to physical illness. I am a warm and compassionate therapist who can assist you through many of life's transitions including the loss of a loved one or depression/anxiety from caring for a loved one with a terminal illness or debilitating disease.

Additionally, I utilize skill training based in dialectical behavioral therapy to foster lasting change towards healthy living and relationships.
This one life is yours. Unexpected change, loss, suffering and even growth can destabilize and disorient. Participating in psychotherapy can provide valuable relief, perspective, and healing. Even more, psychotherapy offers the opportunity to feel wholly in control of your life and an active participant in your relationships.

I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and other modalities.
Managing the stressors that life throws at us can be challenging! The path through life is rarely smooth, and we all navigate the terrain in our own, unique ways. Often, we have the tools to manage the obstacles on our own; other times, that path is wide enough to allow support from others as we move forward. Still other times, we can’t even find the path! I strive to promote an environment in which clients feel safe to share experiences at their own pace and without judgment. I believe that a genuine approach, supported by evidenced-based treatment models, cultivates the rapport necessary to promote positive change.

The modalities I incorporate are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Mindfulness.
Ideal clients are those who want to be the experts of their experiences and view therapy as a collaborative approach. I work with clients who are ready to begin their journey around their trauma work. I've found EMDR to be a critical component to integrative trauma treatment. These clients might be ready to see a reduction in symptoms! I also enjoy working with clients who are feeling stuck in life, perhaps by their anxiety or depression. I have experience working with teens, substance use and veterans.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Annapolis or for an Annapolis DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Annapolis and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
