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.
I have moved from a part time private practice to full time availability. If you do not find a time that works for your schedule, please contact me and let me know what time slots you best meet your needs .
If you would like to explore working together, contact me for a 30 min free consultation.
