Philosophy

I am a therapist but I am a human first, and so I place value on building and strengthening the therapeutic relationship. My style is collaborative and balances sarcasm when appropriate, unconditional positive regard, and directness. I appreciate an eclectic approach to meet individuals where they are and that includes the following therapeutic modalities: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT)/Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC).

Why VERY?

I believe that real recovery happens in real life. I recognize the importance of receiving treatment in the least restrictive environment and specifically at home – the place where individuals are exposed to their triggers and the same place where they can learn to cope with them.

Interests

Traveling, everything from hiking national parks to walking at the beach or in local county parks, and goldendoodles
