My Approach to Helping
The decision to seek treatment is not an easy one because the therapeutic process requires you to share your experiences, emotions and concerns with someone whom you've just met. I'm aware that this is often what makes people hesitant to attend therapy and I am hopeful that my personality as a therapist will help you to feel comfortable enough to participate in sessions with me. I am passionate about my profession as a Licensed Professional Counselor and I'm dedicated to helping adults and young adults find balance in their lives and happiness in their relationships.
My approach to your treatment is to use my training and experience with dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help you learn skills to be more present in your life, cope with emotions more effectively, manage distress, and maintain healthy and fulfilling relationships. I facilitate DBT group therapy sessions.
As a therapist, I am empathetic, genuine, and respectful. I bring a sense of humor and warmth to sessions. I incorporate realistic examples to help you understand the skills being presented and I encourage participants to share their own experiences.
