My practice is dedicated to the treatment of OCD & selected anxiety disorders. My approach blends Cognitive & Behavioral Therapy and Inferential Based Treatment (C-IBT). IBT is a new generation of cognitive therapy, developed specifically for the treatment of OCD but with applications for other anxiety disorders. IBT achieves change by focusing on a type of (obsessional) doubting process, where reality, senses and perception are distrusted and/or discounted in favor of what is imagined, irrelevant or absurdly implausible. C-IBT is considered a "game-changer", going beyond the limits of traditional CBT.

I have been a practicing psychotherapist in Portsmouth for 25 years, specializing in depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. I have also successfully helped clients struggling with trauma, OCD , anger management, prolonged grief, parenting issues, and Bi-polar Disorder. I emphasize a collaborative effort with clients and believe therapy is only successful when there is a positive relationship between the client and the clinician. I have worked with numerous clients who have needed medication at some point in their treatment. I do not rush to recommend medication, but I do work closely PCP's or psychiatrists if medication is necessary.

We often get stuck in maladaptive beliefs and patterns of behavior that once helped us cope with shame, fear or anxiety. They get in our way of feeling balance and a sense of well-being in our lives. The more we can develop insight into the source of these issues and break them down into manageable pieces, the more rewarding our relationships, work and free time will become. We all have the capacity to make positive changes that improve the quality of our lives. It is a sign of strength and resilience to reach out for help.

As inherently social beings, I believe that we learn to love and accept ourselves, gain self awareness, and form a strong self-concept through our connections with others. As such, I consider the psychotherapeutic relationship and process to be of vital importance in working through any barrier that holds us back from enjoying a meaningful and fulfilling life. True healing happens in connection with others through trust, vulnerability and being seen and accepted for who we are at our core. It’s not about changing who we are but about learning how to use our inherent strengths to care for ourselves and reach our full potential.

It is my belief that our inherent most natural state is that of joy and well-being. I believe this to be true of everyone. Our life experiences and the beliefs that result often serve to distance us from our innate wholeness contributing to suffering. I see my role as a therapist as joining with you and facilitating your return to wellness through a variety of mind/body approaches. My goal is to meet you where you are and offer guidance as you process,gain insight,and release any obstacles between you and your capacity for living a wholehearted life.
