About

I provide a warm, accepting and nonjudgmental approach, emphasizing the use of evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). In addition, I have received formal training and experience with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have facilitated DBT skills groups and provide individualized DBT treatment to adolescents and adults. I thus focus on applying mindfulness and related behavioral skills to help clients learn to tolerate distress, manage emotions, and increase their overall coping ability and quality of life.
I have worked extensively with teenagers, adults, and families and specialize in the treatment of personality disorders, self-injury, anxiety, and depression. I also have significant experience working with eating disorders and eating issues including binge eating and emotional eating.
I have worked in residential, inpatient, and partial hospital levels of treatment for adolescents and adults. I also provide psychological assessment with an emphasis on the diagnosis of severe psychopathology and personality disorders.

DBT was originally developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan to help individuals who struggle with regulating their emotions and controlling impulses. It combines cognitive behavioral techniques such as examining and challenging problematic thoughts with concepts from eastern philosophy including mindfulness and acceptance. DBT skills group will teach you to manage painful thoughts and emotions, develop the ability to tolerate distress, and assist you in building a life you are proud and passionate about. The Emotion Regulation Module will begin in April 2017.
