About

We, as humans, naturally want to avoid what is uncomfortable. People that find themselves reaching out to me for therapy are highly critical of themselves or do other things that do not work long-term like isolate, avoid, push things down, overthink, overeat, drink, just to name a few. I see many people that struggle with the ability to regulate their emotions or try not to have them. I see many people that struggle with all-or-nothing thinking or actions. If you can't do it all or be perfect, you find that you don't do it at all or you harshly judge yourself for it.
I create an environment in which you will not be judged, and I hope to teach you to do the same for yourself. I help people to accept themselves and also make the needed behavior changes to work towards goals. I incorporate mindfulness and coping skills training into my therapy. I am also available to teach DBT skills on a one-on-one basis.
The process of finding a therapist that will be a "good fit" can feel overwhelming and that makes sense. You are the client and are hiring someone for a particularly sensitive service. To take a step, leave me a voicemail or email to specify whether you would like to schedule a consultation or first time appointment. Appts available Tuesday through Friday.
