I am a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist who specializes in treatment of anxiety (including obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic, phobias, discomfort in any social situation, separation anxiety), child and adult ADD/ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, parent/child difficulties, and coping with chronic and/or life-threatening medical illness. I provide personalized, empathetic therapy based on clinically proven methods. I focus on developing effective coping skills, healthier habits, and new tools for future use. My goal is to reduce fear, anxiety, depression, and to increase confidence, improve relationships, and create lasting change.

I practice primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Extensive studies show Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to be highly effective for a variety of difficulties. I work actively with my clients to address specific problems. I take a focused, practical approach to finding solutions that will fit each unique individual.

I have been a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist for 15+ years. I want to help my clients feel a sense of confidence and empowerment in their lives. I am strongly committed to providing personalized treatment based on techniques that are known to be effective.
