My approach is behavioral and goal oriented. I focus on identifying new coping strategies and changing behavioral patterns that damage relationships. I assist clients in identifying deeply held values and taking behavioral steps towards getting closer to these values. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral techniques to help clients who struggle with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, OCD, and mood disorders. I help clients identify particular core beliefs that act as barriers to values-based behavior and explore alternative coping behaviors to utilize when one's schemas are triggered in relationships. Particular methods I incorporate in treatment include mindfulness, cognitive defusion, exposure, and Nonviolent communication.

I work with individuals and specialize in couples therapy. My therapeutic stance is straightforward, collaborative, and direct. I believe that creating an authentic and genuine therapeutic relationship is imperative to behavioral change and therefore it is essential that the therapist and client are a good fit and are a collaborative team.

I have co-authored two books. The first, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Interpersonal Problems, presents a complete treatment protocol for therapists working with clients who fall into unhealthy relationship patterns and helps them overcome maladaptive interpersonal behavior. The second book, The Interpersonal Problems Workbook, combines research and evidence-based techniques for strengthening relationships.
