Counseling, Psychotherapy & Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker providing tele-therapy to residents of Washington and Idaho. My work experience in rural behavioral health settings has prepared me to be well rounded in working with a variety of symptoms, conditions, and diagnoses. I use a range of treatment methodologies including Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT). I enjoy working with people holistically, incorporating neurobiology into therapy. I work with individuals and facilitate RO-DBT skills groups.
RO-DBT treats overcontrolled disorders like chronic depression, chronic anxiety, autism spectrum disorders, anorexia and personality disorders such as avoidant, paranoid, and obsessive compulsive.
If you would like to explore working together, contact me for a 30 min free consultation.
