I specialize in DBT treatment for teens and adults. I have intensive and advanced training in DBT from Behavioral Tech, including Prolonged Exposure for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (DBT-PE). I am also trained in DBT for Adolescents (DBT-A), and DBT for Substance Use Disorders (DBT-SUD) .
For those interested in Comprehensive DBT, I offer individual treatment, phone coaching, DBT Skills group, and sit on a DBT-consultation team with Linehan Board Certified DBT clinicians.
I specialize in treating PTSD and trauma. Prior to relocating to Seattle, I worked at a specialty clinic affiliated with NYU focused on treating survivors of trauma, abuse, grief, and loss.
With teens, I often utilized Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have been intensely trained by a national trainer. With adults, I utilize Exposure Treatments including DBT-PE and CETA.
I operate from a trauma-informed, and culturally competent framework. I believe that clients don't fail treatment, treatments fail clients. I will work with you to identify the best approach for your needs.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and will work with you to learn how thoughts, feelings, and actions work together to increase symptoms of Depression and Anxiety. I will work with you to help understand your symptoms and partner with you to find solutions.
Whether you are a teen moving to a new school, an adult struggling in a new role at work, or just a person going through stuff, I know that stress is a part of life and it can be difficult to manage transitions. I have many years of experience working with Adjustment Disorders sometimes occurring with Depression, Anxiety, or both. I will utilize a blend of psychodynamic therapy with behavioral interventions to meet your needs if a more structured treatment is not a good fit.
