I am trained in evidence-based practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and family-based therapy (FBT).
“Treat the patient, not just the disease.” This mantra has always been an inspiration for my practice, as I truly believe that successful therapy is rooted in the positive, working relationships I form with my patients. If you are living with an eating disorder, depression, anxiety, or have family and/or marital issues, life might feel complicated and overwhelming. You may need a safe space to heal, explore yourself, and feel heard. My education & experience as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist has given me the tools to help empower people like you to create positive change and work towards achieving a state of well-being.

I've studied and have been trained in various evidence based practices such as Gottman Method, CBT -TF, DBT, EMDR, and IFS.
We all can feel a little overwhelmed when we experience life's hurdles. At times, having someone to provide a non-judgmental safe listening space that promotes self-reflection, psychoeducation, and growth mindset is extremely empowering. Life can feel amplified and invigorated when we harness our authentic values, learn emotional regulation skills, and boundaries effectively for ourselves and within our interpersonal relationships. I'm passionate about helping others by utilizing a collaborative & holistic approach that incorporates trauma focused evidence based interventions, self-acceptance, and activation strategies.

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.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in San Diego or for a San Diego CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
