Everyone Deserves a Life Worth Living!
Parent Support & Therapy
I believe that therapy can help work through those feelings of being stuck or feeling powerless to make changes. I am a strong believer in the power of mindfulness. Through mindfulness, which is a basic awareness of self, we can gain control of unwanted behaviors that cause suffering. A therapist can be the catalyst to help you get there. I believe we can take control of our minds rather than our minds controlling us.
I do this through the practice of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I use it in my daily practice both personally and professionally. I co-facilitate a DBT group for adults. I have presented at conferences on the topic of DBT over the years.
I have been trained in many difference modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I believe in doing what works, which means finding the appropriate therapeutic tools to help alleviate or resolve problems. Therefore, I would best describe my therapy style as eclectic.
I do extensive work in the area of grief and loss, having worked as a bereavement counselor with Hospice. Presently, I facilitate a group for Survivors of Suicide – people who have lost someone to suicide. I further support this cause by managing an annual walk/fundraiser each year. I am passionate about suicide prevention and awareness.
My past work experience includes working with addictions and dual-diagnosed clients. I have been a facilitator for a Men’s program affiliated with SAFEchild, a non-profit devoted to protecting children and providing parenting support.
I work with individuals, parents, couples, families and groups.
