I see children, teens, adults, and families. I use a combination of treatments including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Structural Family Therapy. DBT is a cognitive behavioral treatment that is effective with a wide range of issues including, anxiety, self-harm, depression and suicidal ideation. Structural family therapy focuses on increasing communication within a family.
