My primary therapy approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I assume that a lot of psychological suffering comes from one’s difficulty managing negative emotions. The focus of my session is to understand causes of suffering, functions of different emotions, and learn skills to regulate unbearable emotions followed by applying skills to clients’ environments.

Life can be very harsh and cruel, from time to time—full of waves. At the same time, you can learn how to surf them effectively and move with the flow. I would love to guide you along on that path.
