About My Clients

I view treatment as a collaborative effort and provide individualized care looking at the whole person - your strengths, resources, and the environment around you to help you build a life worth living. You can make meaningful changes in your life without needing years of therapy. I have worked in community based settings for a number of years specializing working with individuals with mood and emotion dysregulation disorders as well as postpartum/perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.

My Background and Approach

My years of experience in the mental health field have led me to work with people often drowned by worry, depression, and who feel hopeless about their ability to change. I work to help individuals develop skills aimed at decreasing the power of negative emotions and increasing the presence of other emotions that are often edged out, such as joy. In the words of Jon Kabat-Zinn, "You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf" therapy can provide you with the tools you need to surf on your own through life's challenges. I have training in treating perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and emotion dysregulation disorders.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I was initially dragged into the world of private practice after many years of having my boots on the ground out in the community. I continue to stand strongly by my social work values and the NASW code of ethics. I am an ally for racial justice and the LGBTQIA community. I view those I work with as my equals. While the nature of the connection limits contact to the therapeutic relationship, I recognize I am not all knowing or superior any more than my mechanic is to me, despite my limited knowledge of aeromechanics. I use the skills and tools I teach in my own life daily and weave in as appropriate.
