Whether life is going well or you are struggling to feel well, therapy could be a helpful and powerful tool in moving forward. Finding the right therapist, however, could be overwhelming. With investments of energy, time, and money, it is important to select a therapist with whom you feel comfortable—someone that "gets" you and in whom you have trust and confidence. I enjoy helping adults understand their barriers and strengths to help them meet their goals in the various aspects of their lives, such as relationships, work, school, and health.
I specialize in helping to manage and overcome self-defeating behaviors, relationship problems, depression, and anxiety. Other specialties are insomnia (CBT-I) and ADHD evaluation. I believe health and happiness come through living in moderation. We must also acknowledge our positive, strong, and humorous traits.
This belief system is the cornerstone of my approach, moderative psychotherapy. Many clients describe my "style" as "honest," "real," being a "straight-shooter," and interactive. I would be happy to correspond with you to see how I could help and whether my specialties, approach, and style are a good fit.
