I have been in practice for over 30 years treating clients and their families who are dealing with mental illness, personality disorders, addictions, and relationship difficulties. I treat couples, adults, and teens.
My approach is based on the belief propounded by Milton Erickson,MD that we have the resources to heal ourselves within, and the therapist serves as a catalyst to help the client access this healing power. My approach to therapy is a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy(DBT), motivational interviewing and the stages of change approach to habit cessation and relapse prevention. The goal of my practice is to help my clients live effective lives and to feel confident in their recovery. Together we focus on improving the client's interpersonal relationships, regulate emotions and increase the client's ability to tolerate and cope with distress that inevitably comes our way. I want my clients to develop tools with which to face life's challenges and to confidently navigate change. The therapy session provides a safe practice space to try out new skills, which can then be used in real life situations which the client encounters.
Feel free to contact me to see if we would be a good fit.
