My underlying goal of therapy is to help my clients to access their own innate ability to resolve and manage life struggles. I specialize in providing services to clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. My intention is to gain an understanding of a client's patterns of behavior, and use my training and intuition to guide treatment and establish therapeutic goals. I always involve clients in the process of establishing goals, to be sure that the client's needs are being fully met.
I am particularly interested in the dynamics of families and the impact they have on an individual's relationships and schemas. We often repeat, without knowing it, the ineffective patterns of our families of origin.  Once we gain awareness into this, we have the ability to reexamine our beliefs and make small tweaks in our behaviors to lead to long-term life changes. It's empowering for my clients to finally understand their past choices and how to begin building the life they deserve.
I am formally trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and use my knowledge of DBT to provide practical life skills to my clients in the areas of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. This type of therapy helps people to navigate the often messy world of emotions, and normalize the emotional issues that arise in everyday life. 
My interest in nutrition influences my understanding of mental health, as I recognize the importance of physical health and its effects on one's thoughts and emotions. I have studied the gut/brain connection extensively and believe that achieving balance in one's microbiome (or "gut bacteria") can lead to tremendous improvements in overall emotional and mental wellness. It is not uncommon for clients with "treatment resistant" depression and anxiety to begin to experience symptom relief when taking this approach. I work with my clients to help educate them on the gut-brain connection, and help direct them to resources that can help guide them on their path to healing. 
My intention in my work is to help clients to build insight into their patterns of behavior, heal their physical bodies. and provide them with DBT skills that will help them improve their ability to navigate life's challenges. I am truly invested in my clients' journeys and celebrating small victories along the way. I invite you to call me directly to see how I might be able to help you to reach your own personal goals.
