9 Years Experience
Licensed Professional Counselor, LGPC
In addition to my person-centered approach to therapy, I am also intensively trained in comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to assist clients who are managing self-harm and suicidal ideation. Self-harm and suicidal ideation are behaviors that seek to resolve something that we view as a problem, and I use my eclectic skillset as a way to help clients problem solve differently and reconnect to the world in a way that enhances their quality of life and honors the nuances of who they are.
4 Years Experience
As a therapist, employing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to address suicidal thoughts is a deeply empathetic and structured journey. Through a combination of validation, skill-building, and creating a safety plan, I collaborate closely with individuals to help them cope with intense emotions and develop healthier ways of navigating distress. The DBT framework provides a lifeline, offering tangible tools and strategies that empower clients to build resilience, find hope, and ultimately move beyond the shadows of suicidal ideation towards a more stable and fulfilling life.

Psychologist, PhD, LPC, PsyD, MSW, Marriage and Family Counselor, LCSW
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was one of the first therapies to treat highly suicidal individuals on an outpatient basis. Because DBT considers suicide as the solution, not the actual problem itself, DBT therapists are focused on identifying the actual problems in order to assist with different, tangible solutions. Not only that, but DBT therapists are able to speak frankly about death instead of tiptoeing around it, treating patients with respect rather than patronizing with whispery tones and “concerned” looks. Within DBT, no person is treated as “fragile” and though the situation may be serious, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
