I want to help you create a life worth sharing. Over the years, therapists have focused on diagnoses, like depression or anxiety. Plum Behavioral's Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) class seeks to treat the core of the problem for some, excessive self-control (overcontrol, or OC). We work to help you improve your social signaling (what others see) so that you might form stronger social bonds, enriching your life and helping you share the best of you with others. I am also a student of standard DBT, which treats undercontrol disorders, and look forward to adding DBT to my set of skills.
I am someone that enjoys getting to know new people from all walks of life. I feel like I take something person away from every client I meet. I find that building personal connections and helping others live their best lives gives me a sense of fulfillment. I really love my time consulting (talking) with other therapists at Plum, and it reminds me of how much being part of a team can bring to someone’s life.
What inspired you to pursue your profession?
When I was in undergrad, I was treated for major depressive disorder by a gifted young student therapist. Working with him through and even after college helped me learn boundaries and build self-esteem, and radically changed my life. I used my degree in Journalism/Advertising for about 6 years after graduation, and then lost my job due to downsizing. During this time, however, I was learning all about mental health that I could, due to my own family’s struggles. I decided that if I’m not part of the solution, I’m part of the problem, and I wanted to be able to help others the way my first therapist had helped me.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
I am currently practicing telehealth only, and would like to expand my practice to in-person as well, when practical. I enjoy learning about new techniques and types of therapy, and plan to continue to expand my therapeutic skills to improve myself and my team!
