In my work with adolescents and adults across the life span, I utilize a strong CBT and strengths-based approach as well as family systems, psychodynamic, trauma based and mindfulness-based approaches.
Whether you have hit a rough patch, realize the need to address old wounds, or feel as if you have lost your way, a mental health therapist can help guide you back and create a new path forward. Many people face seemingly insurmountable obstacles that may be rooted in personal life stories or internal or external forces that seem to be working against them. I am passionate about meeting people where they are and helping them develop a path forward to a healthier and more fulfilling life. I believe all people possess strengths and the ability to effect change in their lives.

I work with people who often have an issue or problem which prevents them from fully functioning in life, which affects their ability to be happy. This might be a relationship issue, a personality problem which has bothered them from childhood, or a bio-psycho-social issue like depression or anxiety. I seek to help people by developing a relationship in which we can work in a therapeutic modality that is appropriate for them.

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.
