(note: no longer taking new patients)
I offer a collaborative approach and aim to create a safe and supportive environment that will help clients to increase their psychological flexibility, which includes learning how to live a full and valued life while coping with unpleasant thoughts or feelings. During the course of therapy, I will help to guide clients toward their goals through fostering insight and acceptance while also reducing avoidant behaviors. I believe that people have a natural internal strength that I seek to foster through empowerment. My ultimate goal is to give clients the knowledge, insight, and tools to manage their mental health on their own.
I have received extensive training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which tends to be my main treatment modality. I will often integrate other techniques and methods as works best for each individual client. I also have experience utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have worked with a large variety of disorders, ranging in severity from inpatient units to outpatient mental health clinics. While I have experience in the treatment of a wide range of psychological issues, I specialize in anxiety disorders, as well as mood and personality disorders.
