Are you struggling to let go and heal from a traumatic experience? Do you feel stuck in sadness or overwhelmed with worry? Do things seem so stressful that it is hard to feel happiness? If any of these questions ring true for you, I have the expertise to guide you in overcoming these challenges. I utilize state of the art evidence-based treatment methods to directly work on your concerns and cut through the obstacles that are limiting your life. In my practice you will learn essential coping skills to apply in your life immediately to begin your transformation.
I specialize in treating a range of psychological concerns such as depression, anxiety, and relationship issues using sceintifically-informed methods grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and couples therapy through the Gottman Method. I approach PTSD through Trauma-Focused CBT and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
I know how hard it can be to take this first step towards psychotherapy. It takes bringing all of yourself to the process. Therefore I work hard to understand your concerns through an expanded treatment perspective that promotes psychological growth and development while attending to your mind, body, and spirit.

During group meetings, members work collaboratively to keep each other accountable and providing a mix of support and appropriate challenge for each other as they work toward their treatment goals. members regularly have between-session assignments to complete including readings, worksheets, or practicing techniques covered during sessions. Showing respect for each other and maintaining other members’ confidentiality are requirements to take part.
