       I have long been interested in the concept of mindfulness and self-compassion—both in my personal life and in my practice. The mindfulness skills provide an opening to self-acceptance and reduction of judgments. Although this begins a different journey for most clients, I believe greater self-compassion allows clients to use new behavior skills in order to make changes in their lives.
DBT allows me to bring these values into each session along with humor and understanding.
I enjoy knowing that clients are doing the
best they can!”
