Welcome! Thank you for considering me as your psychologist. My training and professional experience have guided me toward a philosophical outlook towards therapy. I believe that a therapeutic relationship must be mutually engaging, and, as such, involves active participation by both the patient and the clinician. My desire is to help you reach your goals in life, particularly in the context of your values and beliefs, facilitating growth and reaching for a fulfilling life worth living.
My practice emphasizes Dialectical Behavior Therapy as developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. For these past twenty years, I have been practicing this cognitive behavioral treatment approach which aids in learning adaptive skills to regulate emotions, increasing self-awareness, improving interpersonal relationships, and tolerating very stressful situations and emotional responses to life's events.
