Since youth, I wondered about human behavior and why people do what they do. To explore this interest further I took a class in comparative behavior and loved it. Since then I looked for opportunities to learn more about people, their actions, and their feelings while trying to find ways to help them improve their lives and feel better. I am lucky enough to be trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I used this advanced therapy process in California at the Anne Sippi Clinics in the service of those suffering severe adult psychopathology (mental health issues) early on in his career.

How exhausted are you after having negative thoughts? Then you start feeling guilty for having negative thoughts so you feel even worse than before? Often times you might look to avoid dealing with it by distracting or numbing yourself with substances. Does it ever feel like the pain or addictions are taking control over your life or at the very least making it difficult for you to enjoy current activities? You're not alone. I understand how distressing this feels and will help you find peace and balance once again.

There are times when any one of us can feel like we need a little more support than friends and family can provide. Knowing when to seek professional help is a brave step in the right direction. A skillful empathetic therapist can help tap into strengths you may have forgotten, you have and teach you how to use them to resolve challenges you face. I am experienced with mental health and substance use disorders and can help you learn skills to better manage and cope with stress, or confront addictive behaviors to help put you back in charge of your life.
