About

People often feel vulnerable and overwhelmed when starting therapy. My approach to therapy is that therapy is a partnership between the client and the therapist. I believe it is important that we both are working towards the same goal and that you feel comfortable enough to be honest and open to my help. Creating a partnership will help the two of us make progress together and empower you to be aware of your own potential. I provide individual, couples, family and group therapies. All therapies focus on developing skills to make lasting change and to improve self esteem.
I have had a wide variety of experience and feel comfortable providing people therapy with many of the issues that life brings. I am most comfortable using Dialectical Behavioral therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused therapies. These approaches are straight forward and work on skill develop to make lasting changes.
I am who work as a part of a DBT team and supervise. I am trained in DBT at the Intensive training level by Marsha Linehan and Shari Manning. As well as Prolonged Exposure for trauma. My team provides specialized treatment that is evidenced based for persons and family members with personality disorders, mood disorders and those impacted by trauma.
