Notes: My work is largely influenced by Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in order to teach skills and ways of reorienting in order to strengthen mental health in a way that is self-sustaining.
We will focus on identifying habits, situations, patterns, and otherwise areas of “stuckness” in your life which are standing as barriers towards greater life satisfaction, fulfillment, and growth.
I often tie in psychodynamic perspectives and attachment-oriented perspectives as well as techniques from additional modalities such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), as needed.
My training was completed in the University of Michigan Psychiatry Department and I have conducted individual and group psychotherapy with individuals dealing with a range of issues including depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, bipolar disorder, adjustment struggles, trauma and PTSD, grief, disordered eating, phobias, and low self-esteem. I have received training and education in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy, Mindfulness-based interventions, Attachment-based interventions, and trauma work.
