About

Do you find yourself wanting to feel happier, feel less stressed or want to be calmer? My counseling approach is focused on using positive psychology to help achieve a happier, more fulfilling life. I believe in focusing on one's strengths, while working on one's weaknesses. I believe strengthening self-esteem is one of the keys to helping conquer any issue. I routinely treat people suffering from depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, mood disorders, relationship issues, eating disorders, and everyday stress.
I work in the cognitive-behavioral framework but use many other theoretical orientations in order to achieve personal goals. Cognitive-behavioral therapy involves changing ones thoughts and behaviors to achieve greater happiness and relief of symptoms.
I believe that therapy is a mutual journey between counselor and client. When counseling, I do not have a hidden agenda, but rather am there to aid my clients in whatever their goals are.
