this seems to highlight my character as being flexible, but I also tend to understand and start from a cognitive -behavioral perspective as well, as well I have a lot of experience and certification with stress management.
My ideal client does not have any set of qualities specifically. I pride myself on being flexible and willing to understand different perspectives, as long as the client coming is willing to talk with me. I have experience working with anxiety, social issues, mood problems as well as with children. As a client of mine, I'm open to starting wherever the client is, and even to support through a self-discovery to find what kinds of things my client would like to learn.

Utilizing an active approach to therapy, I provide an environment to help heal underlying frameworks through use of integrative cognitive behavioral, attachment, existential, humanistic, and feminist lenses tailored to the client's needs.
I believe that everyone experiences this world with their own unique set of problems, perspectives, and ways of coping. That’s why therapy should validate each individual's experiences and use them to strengthen the tools they might already possess, and maybe learn a few more along the way. My passion is to help individuals experience the beauty of life through utilizing humor and strength-based therapies. Therapy can sometimes feel painful, but there can also be so much joy that can be derived from it. I feel privileged to support people who have experienced life’s difficulties and are ready to find ways to feel empowered.

In our work, I apply Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Relaxation and Self Compassionate practices.
Human Nature has adapted, grown and embraced change throughout our history. As a child, adult, or couple in a relationship, you can explore tools to meet your specific needs. By identifying old triggers and tapes, you can let go of what you have outgrown. Your previous strengths can carry you from who you have been, to who you choose to be. With this old resilience, you can allow change and expand your experiences. You can step forward toward a new vision of you. Choose a "do-over". Learn to accept your changes with self compassion and a renewed curiosity for self expression. Move from resistance to acceptance to simple joys.

I typically utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients determine if some of the patterns they engage in can be altered to produce desired changes.
Youth, adolescence, and early adulthood often involve significant transitions and times of uncertainty, and therapy can provide a supportive environment when there are challenges with navigating and managing these changes. I enjoy providing therapy to children, teenagers, and young adults, as well as working with parents to determine how they can best support and foster the well-being of their children. I conduct therapy in a positive, open, non-judgmental, and culturally-sensitive manner, and I am flexible in working with each client in a way that best suits his or her specific needs.

I see clients of all ages using a combined approach of Cognitive Behavior and Psychodynamic therapies. However, I recognize that one size does not fit all when it comes to therapy, so I tailor my approach to the individual needs of each client.

Tops down ( cognitive /wisdom approaches), bottoms up (body symptoms/sensations, emotions, the unconscious) to discover parts of the psyche that want expression while holding the spiritual aspects of human existence and meaning making.
When coping styles or life experiences challenge our ability to navigate the world, we often need a guide to help get a different perspective and learn new skills. Chronic distressful emotions/stress, burnout, negative inner dialogue, communication and relationship problems, problematic conflict styles, unmet needs/desires, trauma symptoms, and other difficulties lead to emotional distress and disease. Decode your emotions, manage stress/anxiety, cultivate wisdom, move from depression to finding your passion, resolve grief/trauma and help reclaim your joy, transform unhealthy habits, improve relationships while focusing on what's meaningful for a lifetime of self-awareness and acceptance.

My primary theoretical orientation is Cognitive -Behavioral ( CBT ). This means that I attend to your thoughts and feelings and to how they influence emotion and overall well-being, now and in the future. CBT offers a number of strategies for promoting change in the direction of one's long term goals. For our treatment to be most effective, you will need to be an active participant and collaborator in establishing your goals. I also ask that you work on treatment in between sessions, and I frequently give homework assignments to assist in the process.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
