About

Life's problems can feel much more difficult when faced alone. Perhaps you are struggling with a painful loss, are overwhelmed by fear, anger, loneliness or depression. You may be stuck in patterns of negative, self-critical thinking and inner pressure may cause you to feel tense and exhausted. You may feel shame and hopelessness and your means of coping such as avoidance, procrastination, withdrawal or overeating adds to your distress. I help people struggling with anxiety, panic, depression, phobias, eating issues, and relationship distress to understand these problems and develop skills to feel better and create happier lives.
We will focus on the changes you desire. Generally therapy aims to alleviate suffering and improve quality of life. Therapy can help you feel better by improving self-understanding, changing problematic thinking and behavior patterns, developing skills to manage painful emotions, generate positive emotions and nurture qualities such as compassion.
We will consider several different treatment approaches in our work together. I typically integrate methods from a variety of research-supported therapies including cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy. Many people find the mindfulness meditation, emotion regulation and exposure therapy skills I teach to be particularly helpful.
