Clinical Orientation

Some clients come to therapy to address a specific issue; others come for a broader exploration.

I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which teaches individuals to reduce unwanted behaviors, replace them with more skillful behaviors, and create a life worth living.

In private practice, my clinical orientation draws from DBT and several other modalities, and will be tailored to suit your needs. My aim is to provide a warm, compassionate, and interactive setting where you can feel comfortable and validated. Furthermore, I believe that every person possesses a basic goodness and inner wisdom, and together we will work to clear away ineffective or unwanted behaviors so that you can access those elements more effectively. I strive to balance insight about the past with constructive, practical tools that can be used immediately in everyday life.
