My work is informed by Relational Cultural Therapy, CBT , racial identity theory, with attunement to social realities that influence distress.
Stressful conditions may influence depression, anxiety, and other psychological challenges. Life transitions, academic or work stress, family problems, or relational difficulties with a friend or significant other may trigger such distress. My psychodynamic orientation is relational, integrative, and informed by diverse realities such as culture, race, ethnicity, and gender. My approach enables clients to feel safe, understood, and hopeful in their journeys toward change while strengthening confidence, self-esteem, facilitating the development of effective coping and problem solving skills.

I offer a collaborative, pragmatic, and transparent approach to therapy, rooted in ACT and CBT based client-focused treatment models and enjoy working together with clients presenting with a variety of difficulties including but not limited to: anxiety and stress, depression and mood concerns, gender dysphoria, relationship challenges, and life transitions.
Connecting with the versions of ourselves we want to be is challenging: anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, stress, relationship issues, and myriad internal and external/systemic factors make it difficult to “show up” in the ways we would like. My goal as a clinician is to help you get in touch with and connect to the version of yourself most aligned with your values, while you learn how to effectively and consistently navigate the challenges along the way.

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.
