Cognitive Therapy is a model of psychotherapy whose objective is to help people identify inaccurate thought patterns and assumptions that cause anxiety or depression, and that may even affect functioning. It can be challenging to pinpoint and correct these thoughts. Nonetheless, the process of acquiring healthier, reality-based ways of perceiving and actually trying out new solutions to old problems can improve symptoms and mood considerably. In cognitive therapy, I work collaboratively with patients to help them identify and understand how perceptions can interfere with their mood and decision-making, and we work together on a plan to achieve better balance for their life.

A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit. I am only working virtually via Zoom and no longer working with children under 12.

I believe that most children and adolescents can benefit from connecting with another adult to help them sort through their struggles, even short-term. Working in schools for the past 18 years has taught me how to work collaboratively with all the people in your child's life to help them to achieve success. I am able to see the "whole child" as a result, and treat accordingly. I have found that child and adolescent therapists are few and far between, and I hope to be a resource to you.

My approach as a psychotherapist is to work as a consultant to you, facilitating your intention and effort to live the best life you have envisioned for yourself. This will include exploring personal impediments and challenges to this goal and promoting your unique strengths and resources. My attention is directed to the whole person, incorporating an appreciation for the dimensions of "knowing" that reside in the experience of intellect, physical being, emotion, and the spirit. I am warm, empathic, interactive and professional, and fully respect each person's individual life circumstance and process.

CBT really works! Especially when you are working with a trained and experienced therapist. I hold advanced certification in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and use this approach exclusively. Together we will work to improve your insight, mood and motivation. You will learn what influences your mood and decision-making, and how ways of thinking and doing can lead to feeling stuck and hopeless. In addition to CBT, I can teach you powerful skills to improve distress tolerance and emotional regulation. These are skills you will learn to use now, and can rely on in the future. Let's get started!

*NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS* Welcome to my psychology practice. Intimate relationships are challenging for just about everyone. Keeping a passionate connection alive over time requires unique skills, persistence and determination. I work with individuals and couples who wish to deepen emotional or sexual intimacy, improve communication, strengthen their romantic bond, heal from affairs, and folks who feel addicted to pornography or other sexual outlets, as well as depression, irritability, anxiety, etc. Probably the best way to get a sense of me quickly is to read my Psychology Today blog, The Future of Intimacy.

I aim to create an empowering and nonjudgmental space where you can feel comfortable to enact change and reach your goals.

Accepting new patients- Sometimes you make impulsive decisions because of worry or self-esteem. It is hard to concentrate and this is holding you back. You want to work with a goal-oriented nonjudgmental professional who will guide you to a place where you feel confident and in control. Mental health is more than low self-esteem. It impacts all areas of your life including focus, sleep, relationships, athletic performance, and even chronic pain or health conditions.
