I am a LCSW & LCDC. I specialize in RO DBT with adults who have disorders of overcontrol. Overcontrol may include chronic depression, anxiety, anorexia, perfectionism, and personality disorders (Obsessive-Compulsive PD, Avoidant PD, Paranoid PD, Schizoid PD). My clients often struggle with excessive worry, needing to have certainty and order, rigid thinking, insistence on rules or routines, discomfort with social connections, avoidance and procrastination, or excessive working, low emotional expression, and feeling misunderstood. In addition to overcontrolled disorders, I work with schizophrenia spectrum/psychotic disorders.

I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, personality disorders, chronic stress, emotional disturbance, developmental trauma and other mental health issues. My goal in therapy is to cultivate a non-judgmental environment that will allow the patient to become aware of unhelpful behavior patterns that have developed overtime and work together to heal these wounded parts that created the patterns in the first place. My hope is to support the patient in imagining, together, what a different experience could be like.

Change is the language of life. All things change, from mountain peaks eroded with time to our very thoughts, feelings, and life circumstances. We all have within us great potential for profound growth and change in our lives. As we learn about how our past impacts our current and future actions, we gain increased awareness and insight into ourselves. Through increasing our awareness of self in the present moment, change is made possible. You do not have to continue struggling - together we can shift the way you think, feel, and perceive the world around you.

"Accept, choose, and take action." Those are key components of the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) style I embrace. ACT therapy encourages individuals to both seek a deeper understanding of occasional unpleasant realities in the world and choose to develop new behaviors which allow them to interact more successfully within that world. Because anxiety, depression and stress can interfere with living an enriched, meaningful life and realizing your valued goals, ACT serves as a way to "reboot" your thinking.
