Before obtaining my master's degree from Boston University, I received my B.S. from Suffolk University in clinical psychology. My aim now is the same as it was then; guide people towards the answers they seek. I believe in providing prospective through open dialogue and teaching, often using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) approaches. DBT teaches life skills, such as a greater self-awareness, stress management, how to regulate emotions, along with how to be effective in relationships. CBT focuses on changing thinking patterns in order to improve current behaviors. I use these approaches because I have witnessed the amazing effects they can have on people and their loved ones, creating changes people never thought possible. I often feel my job is to create motivation and that's what I do.
