I have experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and substance-use/addiction treatment and recovery.
Throughout my childhood and more formative years, I was under the impression that talking about mental health was considered to be a sign of weakness due to the narrative that had been passed down throughout many generations in my family. However, as I got older and began my journey to become a therapist, I realized that showing emotions is actually a sign of strength and courage, and that wholeness begins with vulnerability. I recognize that the desire to belong, be heard, and feel loved is universal, and my hope is that our time together in the therapeutic environment can be a safe space to honor these tenets.

We integrate treatments, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy ( CBT ), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, self-compassion and positive psychology.
Is your life not where you want it to be? Change is hard. While doing things differently can feel uncomfortable at first, it is possible to do, and becomes more comfortable with time. Change often applies to the behaviors we engage in, or the thoughts that we have. Change can also apply to our relationship with our thoughts, and it is powerful to become less tied to the random thoughts that appear in our head. Let us help you with this! We are passionate about helping people get unstuck and move forward in their lives. Our approach is collaborative and non-judgmental, and includes warmth, compassion and humor.

I use our clinics developed Cognitive -Behavioral (common sense) therapy method which examines how things are perceived and acted on daily. It is most effective when a client defines the goals for therapy, i.e.: “what parts of your life would you like to be more rewarding? Which of life’s relationships do you wish were better?” Together we develop the therapy “work” toward revealing what it is the client does that prevents them from enjoying life as they would like to.

Stress is an inevitable part of life and aspect of the human condition which, in its unhealthy and extreme forms, can manifest as clinical anxiety, depression, and other problems in living (e.g., substance abuse). Perhaps you have experienced the attendant extremes in thought, behavior, and emotion that are brought about by struggles in modern living but you, like many, have hesitated to ask for help or, after trying various forms of therapy, have not made the progress you expected and you’re questioning whether therapy is right for you. This is where I come into play.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
