We practice CBT, DBT, prolonged exposure therapy and skills coaching.
Getting started is a difficult decision to make. Feeling vulnerable can be unbearable. Not many of us want to be vulnerable with ourselves, let alone, with someone else. So, we have 2 choices: 1. keep things as they are or 2. work towards making a change. In my eyes, we are all elegant giraffes. Life comes with ups and downs, and often, this causes us to forget that we are capable of enduring it. Sometimes, what we need is hope. Let’s rise above, and keep our heads held high through all the pain, the suffering, the sadness and all the joy and love that life brings us.

My goal: To meet you wherever you currently find yourself. Regardless of how that looks at this moment, it's important to recognize that there's nothing inherently 'wrong' or 'broken' about you.

My approach is through a trauma-informed lens that uses Narrative Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
I may be a tad bit biased, but I believe therapy to be one of the most monumental and beneficial experiences a person can be a part of. Therapy creates a safe and warm environment for one to learn how to be compassionate towards their younger self, empower their current self, and also fight for their future self. Because of this, therapy has long-lasting impacts on your self-identity, interpersonal relationships, cultural aspects, professional endeavors, and most importantly, your ability to withstand adversity and grow through hardships.

I work from a trauma-informed perspective that includes cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and mindfulness.
Every emotion, thought, or feeling we experience is valid and has the potential to influence our lives. Feeling intense emotions, especially around feelings of grief, can be difficult to process and at times we need to seek clarity for what we are experiencing. I learned this during my own grief journey through the losses of loved ones. We will work together to create worthwhile, real change. I will offer my support in a nurturing and non-judgmental environment. I will offer a specialized approach to each session because every person is unique.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists

Who is DBT for?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is designed for people who experience extreme emotional suffering because they lack the skills of emotion regulation and distress tolerance. The basic affliction can underlie a wide range of conditions, from borderline and other personality disorders to PTSD and treatment-resistant anxiety and depression. The therapy is helpful to those whose emotional reactivity is so intense it is disruptive to everyday functioning and leads to frequent crises.

Why do people need DBT?

The ability to regulate emotions is a core psychological skill that enables people to function in life and pay attention to the world outside themselves; it is consistently associated with well-being. DBT is designed to help people learn how to manage and regulate their emotions. Originally developed to treat people with borderline personality disorder whose extreme emotional suffering led to self-harming behavior and suicide attempts, the therapy is now applied to other conditions involving emotion dysregulation, particularly when other treatments have failed.

What happens in DBT?

Individuals meet weekly with their therapist to discuss their experiences relating to moods, behavior, and skills. Using checklists they maintain, they review emotional experiences and positive practices they engage in. The diaries help individuals discern what led up to a specific problem encountered, this is followed by discussion of the consequences of their actions. In addition, individuals may meet in class-like small groups to learn skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance.

How long does DBT last?

Because it is intended to establish long-lasting behavioral change among those with persistent problems, DBT is designed to last six months to a year. DBT includes both weekly sessions of individual therapy and weekly skills-training sessions conducted in small groups. Studies of DBT have documented improvement within a year of treatment, particularly in controlling self-harmful behavior; nevertheless, individuals may require therapy for several years.
