As a mental health counselor, licensed to practice in Maryland and DC, I serve youths and adults using cognitive -behavioral therapy and other techniques that are best suited for the individual, family or group.
Living a life of peace, free from chaos and dis-ease is what most people strive for. But often we are confronted with anxiety, depression, mood shifts, trauma, stress, anger, grief, isolation, etc. My goal is to help you to restore health and well-being. There are some circumstances of the past that cannot be changed but improving your understanding of past events will help as we work together to create a better present (the here and now), that will lead to a better future.

Therapy models that influence my approach include Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.
Often we wait until we have exhausted every measure before we seek professional help. You can start on your journey to healing, reconciliation, peace, and joy today. I believe that in times of adversity and struggle, we have the greatest potential for growth. It is often hard to see clearly how the difficulties we face will lead to positive changes, so instead we lose our way and get stuck in places of frustration, despair, and resentment. The change process is a journey-sometimes long and at times short. It is a process that gives us the opportunity to discover new ways of approaching our circumstances.

My integrated approach combines psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, trauma focused and insight oriented therapies based on the needs of the client.
When feelings of irritability, fear, worry, anger, sadness, isolation, and emotional ups and downs become overwhelming, it can interfere with your ability to engage at work, at home, and in your relationships. Sometimes, there are deeper issues underneath. Sometimes, there are even events in your past that are impacting your ability to move forward. But you can make it through. In therapy with me, you will experience a safe and comfortable environment to work through these issues together to develop strength in the face of difficulty. Restoration, renewal, and resilience are possible.

CBT teaches you to separate facts from these broad assumptions (e.
Are you regularly feeling overwhelmed? Experiencing intimacy or communication problems in your relationships? Feeling run down and uncertain how to get going again? Let's work together to re-discover your strengths and improve how you feel about yourself and others around you. Our approach to counseling combines Cognitive -Behavioral therapy ( CBT ) and Mindfulness practices. CBT is a widely used form of therapy with which you will learn (1) to tune into your self-talk, (2) recognize how your self-talk impacts your feelings and decisions, and (3) how to re-frame those unhelpful thoughts into more positive ones.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Kensington or for a Kensington CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
