"I help teens, college students, and young adults reduce suffering, stop harmful behaviors, increase positive emotions, and build healthy relationships. When you experience emotions intensely, life can feel like one crisis after another, because you're rarely getting relief from painful feelings. Sometimes the emotions are so overwhelming that you may also feel numb or empty. Self-destructive behaviors can emerge as a way to feel better in the short term, but of course they end up making things worse in the long term, causing problems in your relationships and damaging your self-respect and self-esteem.

"All therapists at the Daniel Beck Group have received rigorous post graduate training and supervision in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is action-oriented, practical, rational, and helps patients gain independence and competency in dealing with real-life issues. CBT helps the patient learn effective skills to change the way they think, feel and behave. Once a patient identifies the patterns keeping them stuck, they develop strategies to challenge what isn't working and make meaningful, life-long changes. These improvements tend to persist after therapy has commenced as the patient now has the tools to be their own therapist."

Whether I am conducting individual, family or group therapy, I focus on our relationships: to other people, to our past, to our bodies and to our thoughts and feelings. I treat people struggling with anxiety, depression, major mental illnesses, eating disorders and the life stresses that accompany growing up and growing older.
