I became a therapist because I have always believed in the power of humans to help each other through relationships that are thoughtful, open, compassionate, and mutually respectful. I have continued in this work because I have seen the impact of therapy in its ability to help people learn to care for themselves and make changes that are meaningful to them. My clients can tell their treatment is important to me and that I am a fellow human who has hope for them. I often hear from clients that they experience me as genuine, open, competent, and funny.
DBT is the treatment that I have found to be the most transformative in my clients’ lives, so I use it often. I have found it to be a helpful tool in understanding and gaining perspective on our thoughts and feelings in order to respond with intention. DBT offers skills to cope with panic and insomnia, mindfulness practices to integrate into daily life, and ways of making meaning of emotions and relationships. Clients often find that DBT helps you have more understanding of your thoughts, feelings, and actions and the factors that influence them.
Our work together will acknowledge the influence of the environments of which were are a part, including systems of oppression such as racism, sexism, and discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community, among others. These factors influence the meaning we make of ourselves, others, and the world and are important to address in therapy.
I accept United Health, United Behavioral Health, Optum, and BlueCross Blue Shield insurances. I will provide updates to this page if I join additional insurance panels.
