My specialty lies in utilizing CBT and DBT to address anxiety.
Anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions can be incredibly overwhelming and debilitating. The constant battle with negative thoughts, intense emotions, and physical symptoms can make it difficult to function daily. As a therapist, I understand the weight that these conditions can carry and the toll they take on one's well-being. That is why I am dedicated to providing a safe and compassionate space for my clients to come and share their feelings with me. I want my clients to know that they are not alone in their struggles and that I am here to support them every step of the way.

You will receive a mix of EMDR and DBT that is custom tailored to your personal needs, and your treatment plan will be as flexible and as fluid as life tends to be.
I'm not going to lament to you about how hard life is; if you're here you know that. My clientele often have a history of working with many therapists, and not finding the help adequate. Whether it's Autistic Burnout, social exclusion due to neurodiversity, disabling symptoms of ADHD, or hitting a wall regarding improvement in therapy, I have a plan. Neurodiversity does not jive with homework, so I do not give any. You will be challenged, and given a plethora of psychoeducation; because it is so hard to fix something unless you know how it works.

Depending on what kind of client you are we will discuss and plan an approach that instills the change you want to see in your life.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists

Who is DBT for?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is designed for people who experience extreme emotional suffering because they lack the skills of emotion regulation and distress tolerance. The basic affliction can underlie a wide range of conditions, from borderline and other personality disorders to PTSD and treatment-resistant anxiety and depression. The therapy is helpful to those whose emotional reactivity is so intense it is disruptive to everyday functioning and leads to frequent crises.

Why do people need DBT?

The ability to regulate emotions is a core psychological skill that enables people to function in life and pay attention to the world outside themselves; it is consistently associated with well-being. DBT is designed to help people learn how to manage and regulate their emotions. Originally developed to treat people with borderline personality disorder whose extreme emotional suffering led to self-harming behavior and suicide attempts, the therapy is now applied to other conditions involving emotion dysregulation, particularly when other treatments have failed.

What happens in DBT?

Individuals meet weekly with their therapist to discuss their experiences relating to moods, behavior, and skills. Using checklists they maintain, they review emotional experiences and positive practices they engage in. The diaries help individuals discern what led up to a specific problem encountered, this is followed by discussion of the consequences of their actions. In addition, individuals may meet in class-like small groups to learn skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance.

How long does DBT last?

Because it is intended to establish long-lasting behavioral change among those with persistent problems, DBT is designed to last six months to a year. DBT includes both weekly sessions of individual therapy and weekly skills-training sessions conducted in small groups. Studies of DBT have documented improvement within a year of treatment, particularly in controlling self-harmful behavior; nevertheless, individuals may require therapy for several years.
