As a Certified Clinical Trauma Therapist, I use a combination of cognitive and body based interventions to facilitate healing including CBT , and Motivational Interviewing.
We've all been through a lot. How are you feeling? Experiencing prolonged stress, trauma, disappointment or loss can have a negative impact on mood and functioning. It can affect how our brains and nervous systems function. Do you want support while you practice skills for coping, soothing your nervous system or rewiring your brain? Often therapy is a messy and sometimes painful process of feeling expression, problem solving, and learning new ideas for thinking and behavior. The work of therapy starts with receiving support, building trust and then seems to require a certain amount of courage, and resolve...ending in a better YOU!

I have found that a hybrid of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and reality therapy helps to redirect old coping skills into personal empowerment.
Often family history and life experiences have taught us unhealthy skills of dealing with the painful events in our lives. You may have found yourself in place where you are reacting in ways you never thought you would and not living the life you want. It's common to not even know why you are feeling the way you do. Exhaustion, frustration, anger and being easily overwhelmed are just a few common indicators there is something going on with your emotional self. If you are struggling know there is a different way.

My work is primarily cognitive -behavioral ( CBT ) and exposure and response prevention (ERP) based but I also use supportive, person-centered, strengths-based approaches in my practice.
I believe in the power of therapy and that you are the director of your own journey. Let’s face it - life is hard and having a safe, supportive, compassionate space to tell your story can help as you navigate its terrain. I pride myself on working collaboratively with clients to bring about the change they desire whether it relates to anxieties, transitions, loss, mood impairment, self-acceptance, life stressors or any other area of growth and development. Together we can learn to better cope and roll with life’s punches.

I utilize CBT , emotion-focused, solution-focused, interpersonal, and psychodynamic approach.
Our own thoughts can be both a positive and negative place to be. I believe that psychotherapy, matched with a very warm, welcoming, and beneficial therapeutic relationship, can be a wonderful process in which we are able to see our thoughts in different ways. Through my own experience with therapy, I found that I was able to give my positive thoughts/experiences more room to shine, while also finding different, more beneficial perspectives, in which to view my maladaptive thoughts. This is an experience that I hope to be able to replicate with each and every one of my clients.

I believe therapy is a great way to help you turn the pain you feel today into the strength you feel tomorrow. My philosophy is simple “I help people become an expert on one subject, themselves”. We as human beings are very complex and often need help to navigate through stress, trauma, and life challenges.

I am committed to working alongside my clients to help them find their inner healing and peace. I have worked with many different cultures, genders, and people from different backgrounds.

Whether dealing with the effects of trauma, a loss, struggling with anxiety or depression, or coping with a life transition, it can help to explore concerns in a safe and supportive environment. I believe that a therapist’s role is to be a listening ear, provide feedback, offer support, and provide resources as clients explore their concerns, identify solutions, and develop plans of action that best fit their chosen life journeys.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic-drawing from evidence-based approaches such as, interpersonal psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based cognitive therapy, psychodynamic theory, and person-centered therapy.
There are times in our lives when problems can feel overwhelming, painful, and difficult to face alone. Relying on friends and family may not be a viable option. During our sessions, you can expect me to take time to get to know you & provide a safe place for you to express your thoughts, feelings, & reactions that arise in and outside of therapy. You can also expect me to work directly in the present moment re an issue, as well as revisit your past re the issue. Whether it's a challenging situation, or you want to change direction in your life, I look forward to establishing a collaborative relationship to achieve your goals.

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.
