I am a Behavioral Therapist whose approach includes short-term, evidence-based therapies for adults, couples, parents, and groups. My style is collaborative and includes skill-building in critical areas such as communication and relationship repair. I treat complex Mood Disorders, Anxiety, Panic, Bipolar, Depression, and Borderline Personality Disorder with treatments that are supported by research. I’m clear and direct- keeping our work on track so you meet your goals- while building in you the capacity for flexibility in order to have a peaceful and enjoyable life.

I am a trained Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT), and I am an intensively trained Dialectical Behavior Therapist who offers DBT Skills Training to Adults, Families, Couples and Parents.
