Emotional highs and lows, shame, depression, anxiety, multicultural issues, guilt, and identity, uncontrollable worry, rumination and personality disorders are addressed through my use of behavioral, solution-focused, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma informed care and cognitive behavioral interventions. I incorporate concepts that help people change or modify dysfunctional thought, emotional and behavior patterns that affect work/school, relationships, self-esteem and daily functioning. I also help children and adults work through early life trauma, relationship challenges, communication difficulties, family conflict and more. My clients learn to assert their needs and to manage conflict in relationships; learn how to interpret and regulate these emotions and respond appropriately; learning ways to accept and tolerate distress without worsening distress; and enhancing or reducing emotions in order to respond effectively and achieve individual goals.
Clients experience my therapeutic style as a holistic approach that focuses on understanding your personhood in all environments (friends, family, work/school, etc.).
My approach to treatment is focused on collaborative, strengths-based work driven by each individual client’s story and goals. I am extensively trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and mindfulness. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, parenting stress, or the impact of trauma, it is my passion and mission to support you as we explore new ways of
thinking and coping.
