I am a licensed psychologist with a unique background in both clinical and counseling psychology. I engage in psychological assessment, individual counseling, family counseling, and group counseling. I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to name a few. I explore the individual's struggles from a comprehensive model that looks at their behavior, beliefs, and experiences to help them understand their own motivations and behavior. I look forward to working with you to help you reach your goals!
Dialectical Behavior Therapy:
ACP's DBT program adheres to the Linehan model of DBT, is certified by MN DHS. Our clients meet with their individual therapist for one hour a week and attend a two-hour weekly skills group for at least 26 weeks. Unlike traditional group psychotherapy which focuses on processing experiences and feelings, DBT groups focus on learning four sets of important skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. DBT a very effective treatment for multiple conditions including borderline personality disorder, depression, PTSD, impulsivity, eating disorders, and some forms of anxiety.
