DBT is a very structured and beneficial treatment program that assists clients with various mental disorders. Currently, DBT is used to treat people with chronic or severe mental health issues. Issues DBT treats include self-harm, eating and food issues, addiction, and posttraumatic stress, as well as borderline personality. DBT was originally designed to treat people who had chronic suicidal thoughts as a symptom of borderline personality.
IFS is one of my favorite techniques because it is rapid and powerful. Using IFS takes time, trust, and patience. When I use this technique with my clients in therapy, at first they are judging it in their minds, not trusting the process. However, when they let go and enjoy the process, they find that it is incredibly powerful and deeply healing. My clients learn how to use IFS on their own at home as well, so they can continue to heal, grow, and relieve themselves of burdens and wounds.
CBT is a great therapy that I use in combination with the other techniques that I'm trained in. I will combine CBT with ACT and URT to give my clients a well-rounded experience. Not all treatments are "cookie cutter" and work for everyone. It is my job to incorporate my training and experience into your sessions so you have a variety of options and aren't stuck in a routine that simply feels like its not benefiting you.
I combine ACT therapy with mindfulness, enabling my clients to learn cognitive and unconscious ways to deal with their mental health situations. I love using ACT therapy because it is simple and easy incorporate in between sessions.
Panic can be absolutely terrifying, especially when it comes out of nowhere. The sudden surge of panic is frightening and you feel like you can't get control of it.

I've taught them the skills necessary to move forward from panic and to start living life again, panic-free. I can help you too.

I'm here to help you find the skills to heal from your depression and start experiencing a life of healing, purpose, and joy.
