"Becoming your best self, managing natural life transitions, and staying on top of daily stressors takes work. It can be particularly challenging if you are experiencing an unexpected life transition, struggling with emotion regulation, engaging in unhealthy behaviors, or feeling distress and unfulfillment in your relationships. I have been working from a client-centered approach for over 15 years and work to achieve supportive, nonjudgmental and collaborative relationships with my clients. My approach draws from my background training in family systems, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy."

The patient is expected to bring a will to live as fulfilled and happy a life as possible. In using ISTDP I approach the patient's time as invaluable, and believe the wisest approach is to be up front with the patient immediately and continuously, to bring relief from suffering in the fastest and safest way possible. Therapy is typically conducted on a weekly basis following the initial evaluation until goals are achieved."

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20052 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20052 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20052 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20052 or family therapy in 20052.

How to find a specialist?
If you're looking for specialist counseling, such as a CBT Therapist in 20052 or a Child Psychologist in 20052, try refining your search using the left navigation on desktop, or "refine" on your mobile device .


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way'. A couples counselor or a family counselor may use different techniques depending on the one that works best for you. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
