I treat adults and seniors using cognitive-behavioral therapy. I also work with couples and family members as appropriate. I have had experience treating patients with anxiety, panic disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, physical and psychological trauma, strokes and brain injury, chronic illnesses, low self-esteem, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and executive function issues. I approach psychotherapy from a biological-psychological-social framework. Working within the theoretical framework of cognitive-behavioral therapy, I incorporate multiple strategies and techniques into my therapeutic practice, including mindfulness meditation.

I view therapy as a conversation that puts you in touch with your inner voice and guides you in using its wisdom to make changes. I am warm and down to earth, and I use humor to create a space where you can be yourself while exploring new possibilities for your life. I offer a culturally-sensitive and collaborative approach to helping clients find joy and meaning in their lives. This can happen by navigating a life transition, resolving a relationship conflict, healing from trauma, or managing depression, stress, or anxiety.

**** Alert: I am currently full and not accepting new clients. **** I work primarily with adults who are struggling with emotional or relational issues. Intellectual understanding of a problem may not be enough to produce change. I try to listen deeply and help people integrate their strengths, values, and emotions in new ways. Many of my clients feel stuck or defeated in certain areas despite doing well in other domains of life.

I believe that the success of therapy is based on the strength of the relationships. I try to create a safe space free of judgement that can allow for that relationship to grow. My hope is that I can help individuals and families explore their understanding and meaning of the problems that they experience. I also hope to give more voice to the values and strengths that run counter to those problems and closer to the preferred path of families and individuals.

Thank you for taking the time today to review my profile. Beginning the process of psychotherapy can feel like a daunting one. Your ability to feel comfortable and at ease with a therapist can only help you to address difficult or painful parts of your life. My patients tell me that they often feel safe and "at home" when they are working with me. I enjoy working with folks who have been suffering from depression, trauma, loss, and substance abuse. Please feel free to call me to talk about scheduling an appointment.

"Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness." - Maya Angelou. In music therapy, I have worked with many people who do not come from a background in music learning yet every person has an intuitive approach to using music therapeutically for their health and wellbeing. I believe that music is an incredible container for human emotion and bio-psycho-social transformation. In the therapy setting, music offers abundant metaphors and parallel process to the client's goals and personal journey.

Choosing to go to therapy is both a courageous and meaningful step in someone's life. In my experience, some clients enter treatment having a sense of what is troubling them and have made great efforts to resolve these difficulties, and yet these painful feelings persist. And other times, clients are only aware of the hurt they are feeling and are looking for ways to identify it's source and alleviate their discomfort. I have found that the therapeutic relationship can be helpful in both circumstances and seek to provide an approach that is best characterized by warmth, flexibility, openness, active engagement, and sensitivity.

Therapy looks different for everyone. Maybe you're feeling stuck, and need some guidance in your career, relationships, or personal growth. Or maybe life has thrown you a curveball that has left you spinning and you want to learn how to cope. Or perhaps you're searching for a place - one hour a week - to be completely and authentically yourself. Whatever it is, let's talk.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
