Announcement icon Mental Health Support During Covid-19. I am offering immediate, short term therapy via telehealth with sliding scale option.
I work with my clients from a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) perspective which explores and understands the connections between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Together, we identify the specific barriers that are interfering with your ability to live the way you would like. We address different ways of relating to your thoughts and emotions, increase awareness into your patterns through mindfulness interventions, and incorporate coping skills to help you reach your goals and cultivate a happier, more balanced life. I value creating a compassionate and nonjudgmental environment where you can feel safe to make changes.
I have extensive training in CBT and was intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) by the treatment's creator, Dr. Marsha Linehan. My clinical specialty also involves my longtime research and clinical work with sports performance, specifically 'choking under pressure' in sports and performance situations.
I look forward to hearing from you, and answering any questions you may have. Thanks so much!
