Metacognitive/RECBT Therapy to increase cognitive flexibility.
We thrive from emotional connections and sometimes those connections become strained by misunderstandings or disconnected through loss and we are left feeling distraught. Learn to develop effective communication skills, embrace grief, identify ways to cope, build trusting relationships with your significant other and those you care about. After a painful relationship sometimes we become unsure of the next step. Want someone to understand painful past experiences, anxiety, depression or indecision and how this gets in the way of a life you want to live? Take a deep breath, take the next step and call. No need to wait any longer.

I'm trained in DBT, CBT , mindfulness, ACT, EFT, CPT, and PE, and I work from an integrative approach.
I love working with couples and individuals with difficulty in romantic relationships (i.e. sexual issues, communication, infidelity, divorce), adults who come from dysfunctional childhoods, as well as those with anxiety, impulsivity, and addiction. I also enjoy working with those in non-traditional romantic relationships (i.e. ethically non-monogamous, polyamorous). I am LGBTQIA- affirming and sex positive. I work best with clients who are engaged, thoughtful, and motivated for change. My style is empathic and direct, with a sense of humor. I believe strongly in the therapeutic alliance and the client/therapist fit.

While I'm trained several treatment modalities, I use the one best suited to the client's temperament including, Evidence Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques and tools.
Do you wish to be happy again, and get back control of your life? Has your self esteem plummeted so that daily functioning has become difficult? Has anxiety, depression and anger taken control of you and won't let you function in peace? My ideal adult client is the multitasking adult, often juggling multiple tasks but are unable to cope with their own anger, anxiety, sadness, or stress which seem to be controlling their lives. My ideal adolescent client is one who is dealing with impulsivity, anger, anxiety, peer relations, self esteem issues or are just too depressed to pay attention to their important last years of school.

I have training in many types of approaches ( cognitive behavioral therapy, stress reduction), however the most important skill is building a positive and trusting relationship where your teenager can feel comfortable to express their difficulties and psychological concerns.
Get the help you need for your teenager! It's easy to feel worried or scared when your teen is showing signs of pain or confusion. Not knowing what to do can create stress in your family. Parents need the guidance and support to help them get through these challenges. Teenagers need their own support and guidance and clarification to help them get through these difficult times.

My approach to counseling blends Wellness and Reality therapy while utilizing significant interventions from Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused therapies.
Many patients struggle with the fact that they seek therapy. However, I applaud your choice to begin the significant process of self exploration and growth. I believe that in spite of pitfalls and stressors, we are all faced with the opportunity to choose how we live our life. By validating feelings I help my clients fully accept themselves while encouraging and motivating them to do their best. Together we will gain acceptance of the choices that lead you to therapy, then collaboratively develop and implement a plan that will allow you to seek better and more rewarding opportunities.

The theoretical approaches that I frequently use are Cognitive Behavioral ,Psycho-dynamic,and Solution-Focused Therapy.
Some times life situations and events can knock us off our feet and turn our lives upside down, leaving us to wonder if we can ever recover and put the pieces of our lives back together again. We all have a story and I believe that we all have the ability to rewrite that story. We can choose to be the victim of our circumstances or we can choose to be the victor. All human beings have the inborn tendency toward growth and self -actualization.

I will challenge you, help you with your goals, and focus on safety, support, and progress. I provide therapy to couples who want to resolve difficult issues effectively. I offer psychotherapy to adults and adolescents and promote trust in self so that much of the work continues outside the therapy room. I view 'eating disorders' as expressions, not pathologies and will work with you to find a healthy voice. For anxiety and depression I utilize imagery, relaxation and cognitive approaches while integrating the past as necessary. Please call or email me with any questions.

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 North Bethesda or for a North Bethesda CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
