Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe we each have an incredible power to heal, renew and restore our lives. My treatment approach is based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., Research conduct by Dr. Linehan has documented the effectiveness of this treatment. The objective of this approach is to help individuals resolve crises by a accepting the client’s experience as valid while simultaneously expecting change. The methods utilized in DBT are: Individual DBT, Telephone Consultation to the client, Skills Training Group and Group Consultation to the Therapist.

Programs are available for adult and adolescent clients who are struggling with behavioral, emotional, and thinking patterns that are causing difficulty in their lives. Often, such clients have had life experiences that were emotionally invalidating and/or traumatic. Diagnostic categories appropriate for referral include, but not limited to: Borderline Personality Disorder, Pain Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, and more.

“Learn to build a life worth living”.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
