About

Do you need help managing emotions or strengthening primary relationships? Are you looking for skills to cope with unpleasant symptoms? Is your quality of life less than you'd like? Are you ready to make a change? No matter how difficult one's situation, nor complex the issues, we can work together to define achievable goals that, once realized, can bring meaning, contentment and reward to life. If you're unsatisfied but ready to take an active role in creating the life you want, strengthening your mental health and wellness in the process, I'm ready to help!
I practice integrated therapy, using Cognitive (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior (DBT) approaches, psychoeducation, emotional catharsis, mindfulness, attachment and reality therapies, and client empowerment. I follow a developmental-wellness model, believing that most behaviors and conditions are not pathological, but rather natural under the circumstances.
I have come to work in counseling later in life after experiencing my own trauma, addiction, significant life transitions, and mental health challenges. My primary motivation is to use my own experience, discovery, and healing to help others.

More about this group

Psychotherapy Book Club

So many profound books have been written that help us understand trauma, loss, conflict, shame, and other issues that often compromise quality of life and mental health, but finding those books can be almost by chance, and with whom can you discuss them? In this “psychotherapy book club” we read books purposely curated for their insights, and in particular, tools for addressing the challenges so many of us face. The facilitated group is both enjoyable and therapeutic—a safe place to open up with others experiencing similar issues in the context of high quality fiction and non-fiction literature.
