About

As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I believe our thoughts, perceptions, and life experiences have a significant impact on our feelings and behavior. My approach will help uncover how your life experiences may have shaped maladaptive thoughts and perceptions that are at the root of undesired behaviors and episodes of stress, anxiety, and depression. But that's not enough! With Mindfulness, we'll discover creative ways to recognize thought and perception patterns that may not be working for you and replace these patterns with ones that help you reach your goals.
While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life today. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing the life you choose.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. Both in person and secure video conferencing is available.
