How I Work
I believe therapy is most successful when there is a good fit between myself and my clients. One of my primary goals in working with you is to create a comfortable and safe environment in which you feel free to share, explore and learn. In our work together we will identify areas in your life in which you may feel stuck. Collaboratively we will create a plan to help alleviate your discomfort while breaking down your goals into manageable steps. Through an exploration of your thoughts, feelings, and current behaviors, we will learn and practice effective ways for making change. An important part of treatment will be identifying your strengths and understanding what is working well for you. While working together, you can expect that I will be honest and open about our interactions and your treatment. My primary method of treatment is talk therapy. I integrate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Functional Analytical Therapy (FAP) into my practice.
