I'm a social worker, and that means that I look not only at what you're thinking and feeling, but also what's going on in your life that might be impacting you. In addition to what many people think of as traditional talk therapy, I assign homework - skills to practice outside of session that ultimately help you reach your goals. We'll identify concrete actions you can take to make changes, and then follow up on your home practice to see what works for you and what might need to be adjusted. I typically practice from a behaviorist perspective, meaning that we work to change behaviors to improve your life. We will also spend time looking at the way your thoughts impact your behaviors and ways to change them. I practice from several modalities, and I typically incorporate Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into most of my practice. I have found DBT to be especially effective and supportive of the changes my clients want to make.
