I'm a clinician seeking to sit alongside you and process whatever is most pressing in your life utilizing the insights of Cognitive Behavioral, Behavioral, and Existential Therapies.
There are moments when life can feel overwhelming - tension in a close relationship, anxiety about "being good enough," or the challenge of maintaining motivation to get done what needs to get done. These experiences might leave you feeling frustrated, fearful, or confused. The problem is that life can be so busy that it's difficult to find time to process all these factors let alone address them. Here we find the beauty of counseling, it offers much needed things: time and space. Time where you can put down your walls and express what's really on your mind in a space where you know you will be heard.

Trauma can have a deep impact on the way an individual views themselves, others, and the world. People who have survived trauma can continue to carry the trauma with them by reliving it in their thoughts and dreams, by avoiding certain people, places, and things and experiencing disturbances in their sleep, mood, and startle response. While all of these symptoms can be overwhelming, you do not have to carry them with you for the rest of your life. There are various treatments that have been scientifically proven to positively impact client's lives and help them not just "get over" their trauma, but to overcome it

My approach to counseling services is three fold; education, skill building, and challenging negative thought patterns and replacing them with reality based affirmations and empowering statements ( cognitive -behavioral therapy).
I view counseling as a partnership between myself, the client, and their family/support system. I have experience working with individuals, groups, and family/marital therapy. In addition to working with depression, anxiety, stress management, and relationship skills, I have experience with personality disorders, and trauma healing; particularly women who have abuse in their history and are currently experiencing distress in relationships, re-victimization, and/or substance use. I believe in meeting the client where they are at and moving forward in their time and stage of change.

Many people come to counseling when they are feeling lost, stuck in negative patterns, and frustrated about their behaviors. They feel unheard and sometimes struggle to explain exactly what they are going through. As your counselor, my goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where you have a voice and can feel inspired to make positive changes that will improve your quality of life. I love helping adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress, and major life adjustments by helping them identify and overcome the obstacles that are inhibiting their happiness.

In session, I tend to rely heavily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) and spend a lot of time focusing on your thoughts and their connection to the symptoms you feel.
I primarily specialize in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, change of life difficulties, and have strong experience working with LGBTQIA individuals. I find it really rewarding when we can chisel away at some of the automatic thoughts that may be clouding your experience or worsening your symptoms. I think it is important that the patient take the lead in therapy and utilize the time we have together in a way that makes sense to them based off of the difficulties they are experiencing. As such, I take a collaborative approach with my patients and welcome feedback that may make our work together more effective and enjoyable.

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.
