I have had an extraordinary career providing therapy in a variety of settings; including homeless shelters, HIV/AIDS organizations, a correctional facility, and community mental health agencies. I have had the privilege of serving diverse groups of people including those living with serious mental illness, survivors of trauma, people struggling with addiction, and those facing their own mortality. For me, regardless of who I have worked with, I have always been astounded by the ability of people to not only overcome the struggles in their lives, but to move beyond suffering and learn to lead lives worth living.
I mostly use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to treat a variety of issues including borderline personality disorder, self-injurious behavior, bulimia and binge eating disorder. I am well versed in the treatment of trauma (including combat veterans), anxiety disorders, depression and substance abuse.
I believe the most important factor that makes therapy successful is the relationship between you and your therapist. I work to create a safe, supportive environment by honoring who you are and providing support and validation of your struggles, fears, and pain. I aim to help you to find your path toward rewarding life.
