“I work with clients to develop a collaborative understanding of their strengths, struggles, goals, and values. My job, as I see it, is to help people explore and understand the kind of life that they would like to have, and how to move towards that life. Things like depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, impulsivity, and aggression often lead to behavior discordant with one’s values and contribute to further pain and suffering. Using evidence based approaches rooted in disciplines such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Enhancement Therapy, I help clients to make important improvements in these areas in the service of living fuller lives.”
