As a licensed social worker, I provide a variety of evidence-based approaches, including CBT , DBT, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing.
When it becomes difficult to cope, therapy can provide a new path forward. Having a nonjudgmental space to explore, validate, and experience your feelings in a healthy way can help you manage anxiety, depression, and other life stressors. I would like to provide that space for you to process your emotions, develop new methods of coping, identify and clarify your goals and values.

Counseling is a collaborative process in which you should feel supported in navigating life's roadblocks, stressors, and transitions. The counseling relationship is a unique experience that propels individual flourishing by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which you can develop and practice skills to cultivate resiliency and personal growth. I believe in strength-based counseling, in which individual strengths and resources are developed and utilized to facilitate well-being and client collaboration to promote and achieve personal goals. The framework I utilize favors a cognitive approach with behavioral, mindfulness, and psychodynamic interventions to address specific areas of distress.

I use a holistic approach that is person-centered, and incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy (EMDR), and mindfulness.
A therapist allows you the space to safely speak your truth, explore your identity and what that means to you, and learn how to approach life with that knowledge. You might be going through life transitions and adjustments such as changes in relationships, living situations, or career. You might be a mother trying to navigate through your new or continuing role, experiencing postpartum depression and anxiety, or trying to recover from loss. You might want to heal wounds left from past traumas and gain insight into how you can move forward. Together we can embark on a journey of healing, knowledge, and self-discovery.

Frequently used techniques include behavioral and cognitive strategies, while psychodynamic approaches are often utilized.
Coping with life's challenges can be difficult. Working with someone who is compassionate and knowledgeable can help to navigate unfamiliar territory. I help clients to draw on their own resources in achieving their goals and assist clients in developing their full potential. 20+ years in working with couples has provided the needed background in helping couples learn new ways of communicating with and relating to each other. Certified in EMDR, I also bring expertise to those who have undergone trauma, abuse or neglect, reprocessing negative beliefs and distressing emotions.

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.
