Depression and anxiety often have their root causes in negative assumptions that we have about ourselves. Clients seek therapy to free themselves of the burden of the past. Insight can be a good first step, but the collaborative work of therapy is then to develop the ability to counter self-defeating thoughts and take steps to improve their situation.

As a clinician, I seek to develop a strong rapport with my clients to promote a collaborative treatment process. I help my clients learn more about themselves and better identify their emotional and therapeutic needs. I believe the opportunity for my clients to develop a sense of agency, and identify how to take action when faced with difficult situations, is key to self-empowerment and growth. I work with my clients to gather information about themselves and their situations, to learn to reflect on their emotions and behaviors in a nonjudgmental way, and to build their confidence to make positive decisions in their life.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LICSW, LADC-1
I have advanced training and years of experience helping those with substance abuse problems as well as identifying and dealing with the underlying issues that may drive the behaviors. Addictions often go hand in hand with other mental illnesses such as depression, trauma, anxiety, ADHD and bipolar illness. I also have advanced training in ADHD. My methods are non-judgmental and generally holistic, but I know enough about medications to be able to recommend when they may be needed. Life can lead us anywhere and it is my mission to make that a happier place for us all.

I believe that therapy is a journey towards growth and change. Over the past thirty years, I've had the honor of sharing this journey with adults of all ages, as well as adolescents and children. In the beginning, I often help people with an immediate problem or crisis. My personal style is warm, supportive and interactive. I draw from cognitive behavioral techniques, which stress concrete, behavioral change. Gradually, I create a safe space where we can establish a trusting relationship. People begin to identify the patterns they want to change. They replace old behaviors with new ones.

Is there a change or problem in your life to which you can’t quite adjust? Life presents us with many kinds of transitions – the death of a loved one, illness, divorce, separation, alcohol or drug problems in yourself or a loved one, health issues, and others – that can induce stress and anxiety. The good news is these indicators of stress may be the signal that you are on the threshold of a positive change. Counseling does not have to be a last ditch effort, undertaken only when you feel at your wit’s end. Instead, it can be a forum in which you can explore and experience yourself in a climate of safety and support.

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!

If you are struggling, I would like to help. Over the years, I have become particularly interested in the process of healing childhood trauma. I provide a safe and supportive environment to explore past hurts, grieve unmet needs and find strength to move forward in life. I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship is a "container" in which healing can occur. In light of the pandemic and the "new normal" of remaining at home, I offer teletherapy support around keeping one's self as calm as possible, so we can keep our immune systems functioning properly.
