Announcement icon I am seeing clients in person and over telehealth, whichever feels best and is most convenient for you.
I work with adults and teens age 14+ on problems ranging from getting over a breakup to overcoming a lifetime of trauma. I use humor and compassion alongside technique and knowledge to help clients calm their thoughts, develop meaningful connections with others, and resolve even long-standing problems. I use concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, and psychodynamic techniques to identify and challenge damaging thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors, ultimately helping clients create a story of themselves that is authentic and empowering.
I specifically specialize in problems related to emotion regulation, including generalized anxiety disorder, complex trauma or CPTSD, dissociation and dissociative disorders, personality disorders, and anger management. No matter how chaotic a client's past has been, we can work together to create a calmer and more positive future.
Mental wellness is a reachable goal. No matter what brings you to therapy, if you want to do the work, I will be happy to work with you. I have had the honor to work successfully with clients who have "failed" with other therapists or who thought "therapy will never work for me." I would love to do a free consultation to see if I would be a good fit for you.
