My approach is to walk with clients and see through your lenses to help you shift your life toward a direction that fits your dreams, values and goals. I have over 10 years experience with DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). This includes Mindfulness based therapy; teaching specific skills to build Emotional Regulation; and Distress Tolerance techniques to help you move effectively through crises. If your symptoms include stress in your relationships, I am all about teaching Interpersonal Effectiveness skills so you can reduce stress and increase joy in your connections with important people in your life. My practice is also Trauma Informed, for those struggling with any kind of trauma and/or PTSD.
It is my passion to empower individuals to improve their overall physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being. My goal is to meet people where they are and provide a non-judgmental, culturally sensitive and compassionate approach to everyone I encounter. My approach focuses on building a strong therapeutic relationship and creating a safe space for clients.
