I provide a warm, non-judgmental place to do the work of therapy. Together, I will work with you to identify specific short- and long-term goals, and to develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. With humor, kindness, and honest examination, I will gently encourage you to gain insight and try out new approaches that will allow you to heal and grow.
My treatment approach draws from a number of effective, scientifically tested treatments. These include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and integrative behavioral couples therapy (IBCT).
These treatments all work to help individuals identify thoughts and behavioral patterns that are individually or interpersonally keeping them stuck, learn to manage painful thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and develop strategies to engage in life in more fulfilling and healthier ways.
I am a results-oriented therapist who will work collaboratively to make treatment work for you.
