Announcement icon I am a Board-Certified Telemental Health Provider licensed in CA and NY. I provide phone/online counseling using HIPAA-compliant platforms.
Are you stressed and use alcohol, other substances, food, exercise, sex, work, spending, gambling, or screen use excessively? Do you think “I got this” after planning a strict regimen for change only to break it soon after? Do failed attempts cause you to feel depressed? Do you long for past times when you could enjoy these pleasures? Do you suspect there may be core issues that drive these behaviors but fear slowing down to explore them? Is there a personal or family history of trauma or emotional issues that causes anxiety? Do you feel exhausted and yearn to wake up refreshed? Are you isolating to avoid people who are concerned?
There is hope and help. Strategies for substance use recovery are being applied to other behaviors called “behavioral” or “process” addictions and support mental health, defined by the World Health Organization as “not merely the absence of mental disorders or symptoms but also a resource supporting overall well-being and productivity.” Recovery is possible.
As a strengths-based, person-centered therapist rooted in positive psychology I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic approaches to build insight and integrate techniques from narrative and mindfulness-based approaches. Together we will apply strategies to reach the mental health, wellness, relationship, education, or career goals you set.
