I’m a TBRI practitioner, completed Level 1 of Gottman Method, and utilize CBT , TF- CBT , attachment theory, and humor.

Does the idea of sitting down and talking about feelings to a stranger sound terrible or terrifying? I want to help you confront the difficulties in your life head on. It’s my job as your therapist to listen to you, your needs, your wants, and your values and create a safe space that will allow you to be fully vulnerable.

As a therapist trained and experienced in trauma treatment (EMDR) and cognitive -behavioral, DBT, CBT , solutions focused, and mindfulness interventions, I assist in peeling back the layers of trauma, defenses, and “should” voices to restore your voice and your body/mind's natural healing ability.
WAIT-LIST AVAILABLE ONLY. Do you have unresolved wounds from childhood, relationships, from the general trauma that life inflicts? I believe everyone has a core self that contains the innate wisdom to heal, grow, and to be liberated through self compassion. I also believe this part of ourselves gets blocked -- physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually -- and silenced through various wounds like trauma, belief systems, and the negative messages we receive from others and society. If you seek healing and a newfound sense of inner freedom and self-acceptance, I can help you.

I generally employ cognitive -behavioral therapy ( CBT ) strategies in concert with mindfulness-based acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) interventions.
Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or residual symptoms of a traumatic experience? Do you find yourself using substances or other harmful coping strategies to make it through the day? Do your emotions seem to overwhelm and guide your day-to-day interactions? Are your relationships with others stressful and unfulfilling? These can be debilitating issues that can hinder our ability to move through life with ease, serenity, and peace. I believe that these struggles are not life sentences, and growth and self-actualization can be achieved through cognitive , emotional, and behavioral changes.

Are you looking to lead your best life? I can guide you as I have experience in many areas including trauma work, TBRI, TF- CBT , attachment theory, suicidal ideation (ASIST), ACT, SFBT, DBT, and play therapy.
My ideal client is someone who is struggling and needs support quickly. His/her issues could range with intense moods to overwhelmed and stressed by life, work, or family. The goals would be to alleviate the symptoms and obtain relief quickly. The client would like to feel calmer and have more tools to help manage what he or she needs. Perhaps, the client is interested in gaining more awareness to their own thoughts, feelings, and sensations. My goal is to help people feel better faster. I have worked for a community mental health agency since 2008 and have a vast knowledge of strategies and techniques to use with you.

I work best with clients who are not only wanting to resolve their issues, but who also have some abiding interest in inner exploration and self-discovery. In my experience, if we only approach therapy with the mindset of needing to fix, therapy can become heavy and mechanical. Even if we are working with difficult subjects, therapy is meant to engage a part of us that loves to know the truth about ourselves. When this happens, it is as though a flame lights up in us, which fuels our passion for self-inquiry. Then, therapy becomes more like an adventure, which can be very enjoyable, meaningful, and expansive.

Do you have a lingering sense of emptiness? A feeling that something is missing, but not sure where to start? Are you stuck in the past, anxious about the future, and unable to enjoy the present? Like you, I have been there. I know how hopeless it can feel. Struggling with relationships and connection is the main focus in my work, and I help individuals like you start to feel more secure in relation with others and yourself. We all have an individual blueprint of attachment, where we might feel a sense of constant anxiety within our relationships, or maybe feel a need to withdraw or detach.

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.
