I use evidence-based treatment methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I believe that with willingness and active participation, all clients have the potential to learn and use skills to shape behaviors to make the their desired changes in life. I also believe in a solution-focused approach and target my therapeutic interventions to be goal-directed and future-oriented.
I have provided treatment to individuals, families and groups in outpatient settings, intensive outpatient programs, residential treatment programs, and inpatient hospital settings. I have worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, trauma, psychosis, family systems problems, life transitions, postpartum depression, and borderline personality disorder. In addition, I have years of experience working with clients struggling with alcohol and drug abuse.
