I work with adolescents and families in our DBT program that are experiencing a wide variety of emotional and interpersonal conflict areas. I also work with adults in our DBT program struggling with borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.
My clinical approach is foundational in dialectical behavioral therapy, balancing acceptance and change strategies to assist client cope with everyday challenges. Other therapeutic tools that I utilize in clinical practice include: strength-based, client-centered approach, motivational interviewing, and narrative therapy.
Some of my personal interests are related to living an active lifestyle such as running, working out, coaching hockey, golfing, and boating. I also enjoy gardening and exploring nature.
