Do you struggle with change like so many of us do? Do you look for ways to deal with it that may not be healthy for you? Do you wish things would resolve on their own or just go away? Change and conflict are inevitable. Some changes occur smoothly, some are stormy and others are very turbulent with high conflict and pain. We can all use some unbiased support during the stormy and turbulent times and yes, even during the smooth changes. We will explore together your aspirations and what may be impeding you in fully experiencing and living your own life. What really matters most to you and are you ready to explore it with me?

As a teen, I was overwhelmed by trauma and cynicism. It was at times impossible to imagine a better future. But many things worked together to help me survive those years of depression. Kind helpers went out of their way to guide and care for me. Every day I aim to follow their example in my work as a mental health therapist. I believe in the power of creative expression, honest connection, and above all: hope. I would be honored to help turn your struggles into healthy coping strategies.

We use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), Strength-Based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Therapy with a Humanistic Foundation.
Therapy for Caregivers acknowledges and understands the everyday challenges of being a caregiver whether it be a familial caregiver or professional caregiver. That’s why we believe in providing education around what caregiving is and why it looks different for every caregiver. Here are some real life caregiving situations I’ve seen first hand. A married couple with teenage children now finding themselves as the primary caregivers for their parents. A spouse caring for their partner with a new onset of dementia or end stage disease. A nurse, physician, or social worker who is experiencing compassion fatigue - extreme tiredness.

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.
