In your relationship, do you shut down during arguments, raise your voice so you can be heard, or become defensive because you feel like you're being blamed or attacked? If so, then it's time to consider getting professional relationship help. Couples struggle to maintain healthy relationships during times that challenges them the most. Whether intimacy has become a chore or you recently discovered a text/email/social media message with proof that your partner is cheating on you, moments such as these put relationships at risk of falling apart...unless the couple has the proper tools & skills to survive it.

As a cognitive-behavioral psychologist, I help clients understand how thoughts directly impact feelings and behaviors. Clients and I will work together to identify the automatic thoughts that accompany feelings such as anxiety, sadness, frustration, and anger. When we're anxious or upset our thoughts are often inaccurate and overly negative. When we start listening to these thoughts we can learn to replace them with more accurate and constructive ones, ultimately resulting in more positive feelings and behaviors.

Psychotherapy, as I define it to my patients and students, is the collaborative inquiry between patient and therapist into the patient's patterns of interaction and patterns of expection. This kind of study leads to greater personal and interpersonal freedom, which allows for the reduction or the elimination of symptoms. Psychotherapy can be of brief duration or an extended enterprise focusing on long term difficulties. The decision on which form of psychotherapy to undertake is usually based on an evaluation of 1 to 3 sessions, where a treatment plan is developed. I am interactive in my approach.

Is anxiety or depression preventing you from living a more fulfilling life? Are you feeling overwhelmed by a major transition? Are you unable to move on from an upsetting or traumatic past experience? I help patients change patterns of behavior that are no longer working, and learn new and more effective ways of coping and engaging with life. I believe that embedded in the painful crises that usually bring individuals and couples to therapy, there are also opportunities for self understanding and mastery that can be discovered and realized in a safe healing relationship.

**Not currently accepting new clients.** I focus on providing an empathic, attentive, and trusting therapeutic space where one can explore areas of life that have become tricky or unsatisfying. Sometimes our once effective approach to addressing problems loses its utility, and it is helpful to consider ways to modify this approach that will hopefully lead to more gratifying outcomes. To this end, we will work collaboratively to identify and understand patterns that may contribute to feeling frustrated or stuck, and we will have the opportunity to experiment with new ways of thinking about and relating to yourself and others.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by feelings of fear, anxiety, anger or sadness and don't know why? Have you ever felt like no one is really listening or truly understands how you are feeling inside? While taking the first step toward seeking help can be difficult, I believe finding a therapist who is the right fit for you can make all the difference. I would describe myself as a caring, genuine and candid therapist with a grounded, supportive and direct style that provides a calming environment, allowing you to feel comfortable and at ease in discussing your personal issues.

Anxiety can be debilitating for many of us. It makes us uncomfortable and avoid things, and we end up not participating in life the way we want to. My approach is to teach you the necessary skills, so that anxiety does not drive your life. I use the most current evidence-based treatments for anxiety. The CBT skills you will learn in treatment with me are well researched and have been shown to help people with anxiety improve their lives. I have focused on treating anxiety using CBT techniques throughout my education, training, and career.

As a therapist, I work not as a "shrink" but an "enhancer," helping clients work through past problems, engage the challenges of the present, and move towards a more fulfilling future. I am client-focused rather than technique-focused because each client-therapist relationship is unique, and techniques should be employed selectively to optimize change and growth. That said, clients can expect that I will: 1) Act as a strong ally, adding emotional and intellectual energy to their efforts to change, 2) Provide insight and fresh perspective that takes them beyond their usual patterns of perceiving and responding to life circumstances.

Change is hard. People often seek psychotherapy around change. They want to change. People in their life want them to change. Or some life change is affecting them in a meaningful way. Often, it's a combination. By working together I can help you in this challenge. I frequently work with adolescents and adults struggling with addiction in themselves or in their families. Many of my patients are addressing anxiety, depression, questions or challenges regarding their sexual orientation, infertility, life transitions, traumatic experiences or eating disorders and other compulsive behaviors. A lot of my patients are college or graduate students.

In therapy, the client and I enter into a collaboration to find new ways to problem-solve, reduce suffering, discover patterns and build new life paths. As part of this process, I help the client: to learn about patterns of thought and behavior, to learn to be with unpleasant experiences instead of avoiding them or grasping for something else, and to practice awareness, self-compassion and curiosity, habits of mind that help bring about positive change. I have a gentle, direct, and engaging approach that encourages and supports the client.
