What I've learned in over 20 years of practice is the profound resilience of the human spirit and the drive to live a life worth living.
Trained as a DBT and CBT therapist is valuable to helping clients approach problems head on and regulate what are intolerable emotions.
I am the eternal optimist. I have the personality that believes there is always a way and it's never too hard. Using CBT and DBT fits my rational problem solving style to life.
