FAQ

WHICH AGES DO YOU WORK WITH?

 

While I am comfortable working with all ages, I specialize in working with people in adolescence through adulthood.

 

WHICH TREATMENTS DO YOU USE?

Most often, I use evidence-based treatments including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). DBT is a therapy designed to help people suffering from personality disorders. It has also been used to treat mood disorders, as well as those who need to change patterns of behavior that are not helpful, such as self-harm, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse. CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving.

 

Regardless of the treatment plan that we choose to follow, I will provide you with the resources, guidance, and support you need to be successful in your life.
