There are times in our life where we reach a point that we realize something may not be manageable anymore or has gotten bigger than we anticipated. Often people may be feeling stuck or out of control. Whether it's improving your mood, setting boundaries with others, adjusting to a new phase of life, exploring past trauma or your substance use coming into therapy is taking the first step to implementing change. Therapy provides a safe space where you can explore what is going on and challenge yourself. You oversee your therapy and I follow your lead. I am there to guide you. We will go through the process together.
My style is direct and transparent. I try to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere using respect, empathy, humor, compassion and confrontation. I utilize a combination of traditional and alternative treatment techniques. Therapies offered: DBT based skills, emotion regulation, healthy relationship skills, coping skills, CBT, spirituality, talk therapy, client centered therapy, grounding, anchoring and relaxation techniques. My hours of availability are mainly M-F during the day. If you have other needs we can discuss this and possibly work something out. I am available for "chat sessions" on some evenings or weekends.
