I offer an open-minded, easy-going, and supportive approach to help you navigate through life's stressors and find purpose in your life.

CBT is extremely effective with the various forms of anxiety and depression and are helpful in navigating whatever life struggles we are facing.
If you are struggling with life's challanges and are seeking tools to better cope with or overcome those challanges I want to help you. The foundation of my work is the collaborative and proven effective tools of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ). Exploring and understanding our core beliefs and the relationship between thoughts and feelings gives us the tools to make effective change. Making a commitment to changing behaviors helps us sort out what we actually have control over and frees us from expecting others to change in order for us to be happy.

While trained in Cognitive -Behavioral therapy, I use a combination of therapeutic methods as each client has uniquely different issues.
I believe many painful disorders such as depression and anxiety are rooted in unresolved relationship stress and disconnect. While this pain may have originated in a client's early childhood it is most definitely resurfacing in the client's present relationships. With my expertise, clients will recognize distorted perceptions and unhealthy relationship patterns that are keeping them stuck. They will begin to own their part in the relationship dynamic which can be highly empowering. Also, learning more effective relationship skills with the important people in their lives will enable clients to begin to experience relief from their painful clinical conditions.

I use CBT to help turn your negative thoughts/self-talk into a positive mindset while the Person-Centered approach allows you to feel more comfortable and open with your true self.
Do you feel anxious due to your work, family issues, low self-esteem, and relationship issues? I can especially help those with anxiety/panic attacks. I make it a priority to help clients with buried feelings who have trouble speaking on their emotions. Communicating emotionally is extremely important to promote well-rounded and mature adults. I will help you enhance your self-awareness around unhelpful thought and behavior patterns and build skills necessary to handle life more effectively and develop actionable steps to reach your goals.

Along with cognitive -behavioral, humanistic, and insight-oriented approaches, other skills of relaxation, mindfulness and coping strategy are also emphasized.
We live our lives in search of happiness, fulfillment, enrichment, and balance through our relationships, families, jobs and career. These areas can become demanding, stressful and even overwhelming. We face challenging situations of life transitions, grief and loss, family dynamics, trauma and abuse. As a result, we experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, and other moods. This is a good time to consider seeking professional help. The journey of psychotherapy can be challenging, yet it is often healing and rewarding.

I can help by providing psychoeducation to reduce shame, empathy to increase acceptance and vulnerability, as well as a number of evidence based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Inquiry, and Resilience Building to work through trauma and its impacts.
People come with an assortment of goals, needs, and difficulties. I believe that I work well with folks who have had a history of trauma which has led to internal or external conflict, or both. Now, they find themselves ready to begin or move further along the healing journey. That being said, it leaves an array of opportunities for individuals to be met where they are with an open heart and mind to encounter themselves in a new way. Ultimately, they would want to see themselves in a more healthy and fulfilled manner, where they aren’t limited by shame and doubt but instead driven by courage and opportunity.

I believe that every individual is unique, therefore, no single type of therapy will be effective for everyone. That is why I evaluate each person's specific needs and personality before selecting the most appropriate form of treatment. This approach is called Prescriptive Eclectic Therapy and it draws on theories and techniques from Cognitive -Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Self Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Hypnotherapy and many others. This therapy can be brief or long-term, depending on your specific needs and goals. However, in many cases, therapy can be effective in just a few months.

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.
