I have been working with individuals facing a variety of challenges in life for many years and am impressed with their ability to seek out help and health. My approach is nonjudgmental, I believe in the strengths you already have while working toward the strengths you want to achieve. I integrate DBT theory and skills into my practice and have a strong belief in mindfulness as a therapeutic tool. The relationship between client and therapist is really important so I take great care in my approach as a respectful and caring person while being direct and to the point to be as helpful as possible in your journey, it is your life after all. The first step is the hardest but it is the beginning of a journey that can lead to the creation and completion of goals and growth along the way.
Please call or email me to set up a time for us to talk a bit more about what you would like to achieve in therapy.
