I am a psychologist specializing in ADHD assessment and CBT for anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, and depression. Anxiety, obsessive-compulsive symptoms, trauma, and depression can feel both distressing and debilitating. If you have tried to manage your anxiety on your own and found that relief often feels temporary, with anxiety, intrusive thoughts, or distressing memories eventually returning, an approach that addresses long-term symptom management could help. In therapy with me, we will work to build skills that can help you find lasting relief with therapies that are empirically proven to work, including CBT, PE, and ERP.

I offer telehealth sessions for adults residing in Maryland, Florida, and Indiana, using cognitive behavioral therapies.
As a practicing therapist and former therapy client, I understand how difficult it can be to move forward when you feel stuck or struggling against what seems impossible to recover from or manage. I firmly believe that each of us has the ability to meet and even surpass our own expectations of what is possible for us to overcome, regardless of how dire the circumstances may seem. You are the expert on your own life and my role is to help you become a more confident expert. As a result, I work best with clients who are prepared to be active and committed to therapy in order to be more successful in their everyday lives.

My focus when facilitating groups or individual sessions is self-empowerment and challenging negative perspectives with more positive outlooks. Life can sometimes feel overpowering, and obligations that need to be met can also seem unbearable at times. Still, I believe there will always be some good in what may all seem bad at the moment. I have found my theoretical orientation - cognitive behavioral therapy has helped many of my previous clients reduce stress levels, cope with untimely life changes such as relationships and other losses, and ultimately feel more grounded within their circumstances. I look forward to assisting you!

Embedded within an anti-oppressive framework, my approach to therapy draws heavily from internal family systems therapy (parts work), as well as attachment theory, sensorimotor psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies, neuroscience and mindfulness.
Therapy with me will provide a safe, warm, nonjudgmental, identity-affirming space where you will feel fully heard and understood. Within an anti-oppressive, trauma-centered framework we will explore how past and present experiences have shaped the distress, anxiety, anger, or hopelessness you may be carrying. We will identify the ways you have adapted to these experiences and how this may be contributing to the stress/trauma held in your brain and body and carried into your relationships. I will support and challenge you to grow and heal from this.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario catastrophizing or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
