I employ cognitive-behavioral, family systems, psychodynamic, short-term solution focus, supportive reflection, dialectical behavior, grief and loss therapy and mindfulness models in my practice.
There is nothing like being listened to and understood on a deep level, with genuine interest, unconditional positive regard, congruence, empathy and acceptance. This is what I strive to offer in therapy, as we explore together your hopes and dreams, your losses and regrets, your longings and fears. Many people come to therapy to free themselves from self-defeating patterns, maladaptive behaviors and the legacy of past traumas, so they can be more truly themselves in relation to others and live with greater satisfaction and meaning.

I utilize a variety of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), an integration of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) skills, Narrative therapy, and Motivational Interviewing, while incorporating a holistic view point of our body and mind.
My goal as a therapist is to help you reach a deeper understanding of your struggles and to help create awareness in your life. My belief is once these strengths are recognized and practiced, we can begin working towards our greater potential and begin the healing process or better management of our daily life. I believe people are resilient and have the capacity to heal, if we choose to. I teach practical skills and provide tools that you, you and your partner, child(ren), and family can use every day.

Depending on your personality and specific needs, I may pull techniques from motivational interviewing or cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, solution-focused, or reality therapies.
I believe that all individuals are the experts in themselves but that sometimes they just need a little bit of guidance. By drawing upon your unique characteristics, I will help you to refine your strengths and gain a greater awareness of yourself.

Honesty. Vulnerability. Courage. If you are reading this right now you may be looking to make some positive changes in your life. It takes someone that is truly honest with themselves to reach out when they need help. It takes vulnerability to talk about it. It takes courage to follow through. Sometimes we may feel stuck in life and we come to a bridge that we need to cross. Are you looking for a therapist that is real and genuine that can assist you in crossing this bridge?

Are you noticing behavioral or emotional changes in your child or teenager? Is he not following the rules? Is she consistently angry or frustrated? If your teen having difficulty focusing in school, or having issues building healthy relationships, or having thoughts of self-harm, having someone who can listen without judgment is helpful. Adolescents and Teens process changes differently and may get angry, quiet, or isolate. We can work with them to help them navigate these transitions in a healthy and effective way. I also work with young adults (18) trying to navigate the transition into adulthood (25).

Why struggle through life's challenges alone? Why not seek help today. I believe that each individual client has within themselves the power to change, live their ideal intended life, and maintain satisfying relationships. The counseling experience should provide an environment that is supportive, nonjudgemental, safe, and encouraging. Over my 15+ years of experience I have been known to challenge my clients to confront their issues, and develop the inner fortitude to deal with life's many challenges.

Over the past 20 years, I've had the opportunity to work with children and adolescents. In the last 10 years I've increased my scope to include young and older adults. Anxiety, depression, trauma and other behavioral challenges have made up the majority of my work. In each of these situations a strength-based, goal-centric and client-empowered approach has yielded success. In my experience my clients have simply wanted to feel better about their place in life while re-learning to hope once again. My work in schools and in practice have taught me that my success begins from a place of genuine care for my client's well-being.

Are you a teen or young adult or member of the LGBTQIA+ community struggling with your mental health? Are you STUCK in unhealthy relationships with your family and friends and as a result are experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations and breakdowns in communication? Unhealthy relationships can leave us heartbroken and unfulfilled. We spend countless amounts of energy trying to figure out where we went wrong all to no avail. We become sad, angry, jaded and defeated. Sometimes we give up on relationships all together. It hurts to much to stay and we are too afraid to change. We get STUCK between a rock and a hard place.

Over the years, I've heard many clients expressed a sense of imprisonment within their own body or being 'stuck'. One client would describe 'being everywhere but nowhere' in order to portray the discord between the mind and body. Furthermore, I have encountered numerous clients who went through numerous therapy sessions in the past---only to find out that the change was not enough or even uncomfortable and confusing. As for young clients, their unspoken pain manifest in trace of scars from self-harm and other destructive behaviors. For many of them, the traumatic past has become their present stories.

My entire practice is geared towards meeting the needs of today's woman. From the challenges of adolescence to the shock of having an empty nest and everything in between. I believe that the struggles that occur across a woman's lifespan deserve special attention and an approach that specifically meets her needs. This is especially true for women of color who experience a unique stress associated with being a member of an ethnic minority group in the United States.

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 Laurel or for a Laurel 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 Laurel and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
