My practice is currently full! Parents and children have been having disagreements since the beginning of time. It can be hard to understand what a child is going through, especially when you feel you’ve done everything you possibly can to make things better. The loss of control coupled with feelings ranging from hopelessness to anger can lead to strained and fractured family dynamics.

I have over 18 years of experience working in the addiction and mental health field. I am experienced in various roles across the substance use treatment services continuum of care in both micro and macro levels. I am a “big picture” clinician and believe that to effectively manage addiction and mental health it requires the ability to balance the parts needed for that individual to succeed; mind, body, and spirit. Supporting the client in identifying their unique parts to balance based on their individual needs and history is central to my professional philosophy.

In the current environment, it is more important than ever to prioritize your mental health and emotional well-being. When the demand of our lives becomes overwhelming at times we can feel trapped and powerless. Often we will ignore or seek to avoid our emotional pain rather than address it. Regardless of the challenges you are facing in life, positive change is always possible. In my work as an LMHC I help individuals approach their emotional pain and experiences in a way that reduces their suffering and aids in promoting personal well-being through the use of mindfulness-based therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Initiating therapy can be a challenging process. Whether this is your first time looking for a counselor, or you've had one before, picking who you want to work with can be daunting. The initial sessions are meant to build trust and rapport, setting the foundation for a comfortable environment to open up and share your experience.

Like a butterfly emerging into life, a child requires nurturance, safety, and care. I believe in supporting child and adolescent emotional growth and developmental processes throughout the life cycle especially when healing from adversity is necessary. My approach is collaborative working closely with the parents, schools, and collaterals involved to enhance over all well-being in every capacity of the child's environment. Stemming from a strength-based perspective, using play and expressive art therapies, CBT /DBT, and Somatic Experiencing as theoretical approaches have proven to provide the best outcomes in healing and growth.

My approach is relational and includes cognitive behavioral and mindfulness practices for treating anxiety, depression, trauma, and other mental health concerns.
We all have the power to heal from hard times - even from trauma - it’s within us, it’s human. Sometimes we need another person to support us in our journey to move on from hard times. Feelings of anxiety, depression, or personal trauma can happen, I believe growth and change are always possible outcomes. I provide a safe place, thoughtful attention, and gentle encouragement to support hope, healing, and most importantly, a relationship with yourself that is loving. My goal is to help you increase self-awareness, self-compassion, and self agency - skills that help you understand yourself and your unique value in the world.

Do you find it hard to put yourself first in your relationships? Does it some times feel that no matter how hard you try, you struggle to find joy in every day life? Self care is so important for each person and if we neglect ourselves to care for others, we may have increases in depression and anxiety. Asking for help when things begin to feel overwhelming is the first step in finding the solution. Using a combination of Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Solution Focused Treatment I have been able to help others “find themselves”, so that they can find the joy they so much deserve once again.

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.
