I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Together, these theories provide change strategies balanced with acceptance, self-compassion and mindfulness. They also emphasize the importance of the client and therapist having a strong therapeutic relationship which is why I seek to offer authenticity and full presence in each session.
I enjoy working with a wide variety of ages and life stages, from adolescents to college students, parents to older adults and have experience working with individuals, couples and families across the life span.
WHY DBT and CBT?
There are a lot of theories, or "schools of thought", out there that therapists can use to help inform their work. DBT and CBT are both "evidence based practices" meaning, they have been extensively researched and have been proven to be effective tools for treating a variety of symptoms and disorders.
As a clinician, I believe evidence based practices to be the gold standard and strive to stay on top of the literature in the field to ensure that my client's are receiving the most effective care.
