About me

Specializing in DBT skills groups

I have had 18 years of experience in working with addictions, truama, mood disorders and other mental health issues. Through techniques such as Motivational Interviewing, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT), Shame Reduction, Resiliency Training, and others, we seek to empower individuals to be more skilled and capable of dealing with emotional stress, despair and trauma.

As a therapist, my position focuses on the resiliency and strength of the individual. I emphasize the existential/spiritual nature of the person and the conflict and anxieties that need to be resolved as the person becomes increasingly whole. I have found that there are many ultimate concerns which underlie all emotional, cognitive and behavioral issues. As an individual works on overcoming surface behavior, while resolving the root of those behaviors one will grow and transcend.

What changes a person? The real agent of change is relationships. As the interpersonal germinates and matures, the individual in the relationship comes out of hiding and releases pain, suffering, grief, dispair, dread, etc. And once a suffering individual is able to relate deeply to another, then that person has changed; the discovery of self that is found through intimacy is permanent.
I specialize in DBT SKILLS GROUPS

Choice and responsibility are key to productive therapy. One needs to become proactive and decrease reactivity to fully gain progress in therapy. Furthermore, the psychotherapist is responsible in helping liberate the individual from avoidance and empower them in assuming responsibility. The goal is to bring the individual to the point where he or she can make a choice.
