Are you not living the life you want to? Are certain thoughts, feelings, or behaviors impacting you achieving your goals in life? Do you need someone to talk to who can offer validation, understanding, and empathy? If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, difficulty managing your emotions, relationship issues, self-destructive behaviors, or just feel that learning more effective coping skills to handle day to day life could be helpful, I would be honored to help you on your journey.

I provide therapy services using a dialectical -behavioral, behavioral, and/or other skills-based approaches when needed.
I believe counseling is a collaborative process, and progress in counseling looks different for every individual. I work with my clients to define their goals, and we discuss how we are going to work together to reach those goals. At times, this might involve trying new skills in between sessions, and I enjoy working with clients who are willing to try new strategies to be more effective in their lives. Not every skill works for every person or in every situation, and learning what what works is part of the process. My goal is to support my clients as they figure out ways to be the best versions of themselves.

DBT relies heavily on mindfulness and validation.
Our human emotional experience is complicated and can sometimes get in the way of our goals or our relationships. We often judge our reactions or ourselves for having them because they can lead to impulsivity or emotional suffering, and of course we would prefer to avoid this. If we can learn to experience our thoughts, feelings, and actions in the moment without judgment or assumption, we can learn to work with our emotions, accept things we wish were different and more effectively enact change. This allows us to focus on what we can control to work towards your goals for yourself, relationships, and life.

I utilize treatment modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Art Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Attachment-based therapy.
There are times during our lives when we may benefit from talking with someone to explore our thoughts, emotions, and experiences related to transitions, trauma, loss, and other challenges. Often, thoughts, emotions, perceptions and environmental factors can interfere with our ability to reach our full potential. I view our work together as a shared journey toward your ideal self. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can explore your present experiences and work toward who you want to be. Together, we will work on clarifying your values and goals and help you move toward them in meaningful ways.

My therapeutic approach combines Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
I always think about what I look for in a therapist for myself and that helps me be a better one to my clients. I'm very interactive, upfront, and open-minded but I will also challenge you to do better and be better... for yourself. Taking the step to get into therapy, in the first place, is the toughest part. I've been there myself. I have suffered with depression and anxiety most of my life and have been dealing with chronic pain for the last 10 years. We all have something we are dealing with but it makes a difference when we can use our experience to help the next person live a more fulfilling life.

What type of Buffalo 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.

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.
