My Approach to Helping
Thank you for visiting my page and reading about me! I have worked with adolescents and adults treating complex symptoms since 2008 and have the following speciality areas: Borderline Personality Disorder (offering full comprehensive DBT, as well as only DBT sills training), Post traumatic stress disorder, and mood and anxiety disorders. I strive to offer a balanced therapy with both acceptance strategies (mindfulness to the present reality and an understanding that change can be difficult) and change strategies (cognitive, behavioral, and exposure therapies).
I am a Linehan Board of Certification, Certified DBT clinician (DBT-LBC) and use DBT to treat Borderline Personality Disorder and life threatening behaviors. I advanced training in DBT Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE) to treat trauma, training in CAMS to treat suicide, Behavior Activation to treat mood, and exposure to treat all anxiety disorders - including panic and OCD. I add mindfulness to therapy to treat any symptoms.
