I believe that all humans share a basic desire to be well and happy, and to avoid pain and suffering. Sometimes, we just don’t know how to do that. I also believe that connection is key for us as humans. Without it, we struggle to survive much less thrive. Having only one person in our lives we feel connected to and accepted by can open the doorway for healing. Whether you've experienced trauma, loss, or just a general sense of suffering or emptiness, I will use a compassionate, nonjudgmental approach to build that connection and create a space where you can work through the pain and toward a life worth living.
I specialize in treating adolescents (ages 12 and up) and adults with suicidal thoughts, PTSD and complex trauma, depression, anxiety, self-harm behaviors, chronic emotion dysregulation, and borderline personality disorder. I use adherent DBT, Lifespan Integration therapy, compassion-based approaches, and RO-DBT informed interventions.
You do not have to struggle alone or "figure it out" on your own. Reach out, and let's see if we're a fit to navigate these challenges together.

I primarily use adherent DBT. For PTSD and complex trauma, I use DBT-PTSD and DBT-PE protocols. I incorporate ERP and prolonged exposure as needed for anxiety and OCD, and I use Lifespan Integration to increase overall emotion regulation.
