About My Clients

I treat what's known as "overcontrol". My clients are introverts, perfectionists, worriers, brooders, and the notably stubborn. When self-control is over-expressed, people struggle to authentically connect to others, effectively relax and recover, and cultivate openness to new information and ways of behaving that might make them happier in the long run. The following are associated with over-control: chronic anxiety, significant depression, anorexia nervosa, OCD, and social isolation.

My Background and Approach

Radically Open DBT is a program built on 20 years of research. It comes with guiding materials covering topics like: relaxing the body’s nervous system, approaching feared situations, using body language to join others, enhancing self-awareness, and expressing thoughts, emotions, and needs to others. My role is much like an ambassador, welcoming self-critical clients back to the human tribe. RO-DBT therapists offer warmth and humanize their clients’ experience, while also providing evidence-based advice. Please feel invited to contact me for more information or to see if you might be a good fit for this treatment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Human connection is one of my highest values, so I strive to be open minded with my clients' unique experiences and beliefs. I've been told by my clients that I come across as genuine and willing to be reciprocal in sharing and learning from one another. In my free time, I like searching for antiques, traveling to national parks, and spending time with friends and my two cats, Roland and Dolores.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
