Who I Serve

It takes courage to do what you are doing, and I commend you for taking the first step. Fear, anxiety, grief, and depression are emotions that we all experience. They aren’t unusual, but at times they can feel like a runaway train, stealing your thoughts, time, energy and happiness. I work together with my clients on managing and regulating these overwhelming thoughts and emotions, and help them to draw from their own strength to live a life that’s purposeful and fulfilling according to their values. You are the expert on you, and I will be there to give insight, feedback, and offer new perspectives and coping skills. I work to build trusting, safe, non-judgmental therapeutic relationships, using core principles and skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) such as mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. I use a strengths-based person-centered perspective because what we focus on will expand. Regarding adolescents, they are fighting a tough battle. They are learning to manage their emotions, which can be experienced more intensely than adults. They often deal with sadness, depression, anxiety, impulsivity or self-esteem issues, and need a safe place to sort through life issues and learn coping strategies. Please call or email me today to begin.
