I also have a background in DBT that I draw on to improve coping skills and address problems of daily living.
I work with adults going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

We provide a Comprehensive Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) Program, administered by specialized therapists who have extensive training and experience.
You feel out of control and your emotions hit you like a tidal wave. You feel like you can’t “handle” emotions the way others do. The way you cope in those moments leaves you with a shame hangover. We can teach you coping skills to manage painful emotions and behaviors. If you feel pain from your past, and fear for your future, we can help you find freedom in the present. If you struggle with suicide, self-injurious behaviors, or eating disorder behaviors to manage your emotional pain, then therapy at The Current may be effective for you. We specialize in Eating Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and Depression and have a DBT Program.

I utilize strength-based approaches and implementing both motivational interviewing, as well as some DBT skills.
I love to help individuals from all walks of life. I have a vast range of experience and feel as though I can help someone overcome obstacles, process life situations, acknowledge and heal from trauma, all while using an individual's strengths. I enjoy helping people to explore their strengths, understand where their strengths may stem from, and how they can be useful in their daily lives. I believe that there are no dead-ends, meaning when something does not work for someone, we try again until we find what does work. I like to help people understand their purpose and learn to make choices that best fit their needs.

As a therapist, I practice a person-centered, social justice-informed approach that employs Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy tools/techniques.
During my career, I have worked with both individual and group settings, including adults with people living with HIV, veterans, incarcerated people and transgender/gender variant individuals. These populations included people with depression, bi-polar disorder, personality disorders, anxiety, PTSD and depression. I co-facilitated a group for trans youth and co-coordinated it for 6 years. As a proud bisexual, trans man, I love to work with my LGBT communities. I celebrate kinky and poly people. I strive to be an imperfect ally to non-binary trans people and people of color.

Wow, that was tough! You can breathe now. You have taken the first step in improving your life. What is the first step, you ask? The first step is searching for someone to take the walk to self-preservation with you. Are you struggling with uncontrolled anger? Are you wrestling with unresolved issues from your past? Are your intrusive thoughts occurring more frequently causing you to feel confused and out of control?

I have come to understand depression as the experience of drowning under the weight of unexpressed grief. And if you find yourself struggling with depression I want you to know this: there is a path from where you are to a place that is much happier and calmer. We all suffer and struggle at some point in our lives. But just as there is suffering in life, there is a path from suffering to healing. I know this path well and I would be honored to work with you.

The ideal client for me is someone looking for healing through God's truth. I've walked my own journey of learning how to cope with anxiety and depression and how to walk away from unhealthy relationships. I also learned that for me to try to fill the voids in my heart with people and things only left me empty. I would be honored to help you learn how to walk in freedom from what's burdening your heart.

What type of Columbia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
