I believe in feeling better. Very often, part of feeling better means understanding why you stopped feeling like yourself to begin with. I believe that knowledge is power. I believe that there are factors (genetics, biology, life circumstance) that we can not control that very often impact suffering.
As your therapist I see my role as a supporter, researcher, and teacher. Together we can discover the factors that you can control and those you may not be able to control so that we can help find the best route to healing. I integrate cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral strategies, and mindfulness, focused on creating understanding and increasing strategies for coping.
