Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
DBT is useful in treating mood disorders, suicidal ideation, and for change in behavioral patterns such as self-harm and substance use.
DBT is divided into four stages of treatment. Stages are defined by the severity of your behavior and/or symptoms. DBT’s ultimate goal is to help you live a life you feel good about. While a meaningful, fulfilling life looks different for each person, we work together to reach the goals of each stage in your progress towards having a life that you experience as worth living.

Brainspotting is primarily used in trauma therapy and for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as it aims to help individuals both reprocess negative events and retrain emotional reactions. During brainspotting sessions, therapists help people position their eyes in ways that enable them to target sources of negative emotion. This process supports individuals in accessing emotions on a deeper level and targeting the physical effects of trauma, which activates the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Read more here.

Mindfulness plays a big role in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, and many other issues that people bring into therapy. I utilize a variety of mindfulness skills that will help you in becoming more aware of what's happening in the present moment and to understand your thought patterns. It allows you to step out of your mind and observe those patterns.
