I believe that therapy is teamwork between therapist and client. I bring clinical tools to share but you guide the pace of treatment and set goals. I bring empathy and sympathy and a supportive space.
I am certified in dialectic behavioral therapy, trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, hypnotherapy and art therapy. I combine all the trainings to individually tailor the approach to best fit your unique needs!
