I have devot­ed my career to help­ing oth­ers nav­i­gate dif­fi­cult life issues through psy­chother­a­py and coun­sel­ing. I have worked with a vari­ety of pop­u­la­tions, with an empha­sis on trau­ma, sub­stance use, mood dis­or­ders and fam­i­ly ther­a­py. Today, I seek to work with patients of all back­grounds to help improve their qual­i­ty of life and rela­tion­ships. I am pas­sion­ate about edu­cat­ing and pro­vid­ing ther­a­py to patients and their fam­i­lies. I focus on build­ing self-esteem by reduc­ing the shame and guilt asso­ci­at­ed with sub­stance use and oth­er men­tal health dis­or­ders and help­ing patients and their fam­i­lies rebuild their rela­tion­ships in a healthy, con­struc­tive way. I inte­grate one or more mod­els of research-based ther­a­pies in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the client’s needs and com­fort lev­el. These ther­a­pies include Dialec­ti­cal Behav­ioral Ther­a­py (DBT), Moti­va­tion­al Inter­view­ing (MI), Mind­ful­ness, Fam­i­ly Ther­a­py, Psy­cho­dy­nam­ic Ther­a­py and Cog­ni­tive Behav­ioral Ther­a­py (CBT).
