Message to clients

“I believe that developing an authentic and collaborative therapeutic relationship is the foundation of treatment. I maintain a validating environment to explore and develop a shared understanding of what brings my clients to therapy and how we can work together to accomplish specific goals. 

My style is direct, active, and flexible, with a focus on what works for each individual client. My clients describe me as authentic and able to challenge them in a respectful and caring manner, sometimes while using humor.

I appreciate how challenging the process of change can be and have a great deal of respect for anyone seeking treatment. It is an honor to accompany my clients on their process of self-discovery and growth, and see them achieve a sense of confidence in themselves, satisfaction with their life, and greater fulfillment. I look forward to hearing from you so we can begin this important process together.”


Treatment approaches

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that uses mindfulness and behavioral activation to help people learn strategies to live life more in the present, more focused on important values and goals, and less focused on painful thoughts, feelings and experiences.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)In cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a therapist in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way. (learn more)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment that often used to treat disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, and particularly chronic borderline personality disorder. It teaches skills such as mindfulness, pain tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotional regulation. (learn more)
Mindfulness PracticesMindfulness practices include but are not limited to developing awareness, attention, and remembering. In mindfulness-informed therapy, clients develop tools to become aware of what is occurring within and around them, so they can begin to untangle from mental preoccupations and difficult emotions. Self-acceptance and compassion are also core elements of mindfulness-informed therapy. (learn more)
