I am certified as a trauma specialist and practice Trauma-Focused CBT .
Depression can seem scary and lonely. Anxiety may prevent you from having new experiences. Your past trauma may be impacting your ability to trust others. It may be hard for you to convey your emotions or thoughts. My goal is to help individuals not fear past experiences and current emotional states but rather learn from them. Struggling with mental health can be isolating and I would like to provide you with a nonjudgmental, safe-space to help you overcome your struggles while learning tools to help you grow and heal. I also have experience helping couples to communicate more effectively and reestablish intimacy.

My therapeutic style is a friendly, conversational style that is an integration of solution-based, cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic modalities to really engage with you to understand why something occurs now, and the roots of these currently maintained issues, in order to better resolve them in the future.
The populations I served have primarily been older adolescents and young adults. Along with that, I have experience with children as young as nine years old and older adults. I have a strong interest in sports and performance psychology, but I am not limited to that particular practice area. I am ready and willing to work with anyone who feels that they might need help regaining daily life functioning skills, coping with anxiety and depression, social and professional development, weight-loss coaching, parental coaching, and any other issues that may arise as we work together.

As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I offer direct, supportive, and solution-focused feedback, tools for growth, and emotional support.
It’s hard to tell someone else your deepest secrets. The truth about your gender, your desires, your struggling relationship. A well of shame has pooled up inside, brought on by years of trying to squeeze yourself into the narrow definitions of sexuality forced on you by society. You’re left feeling alienated and unsure if you will ever find the kind of true connection that you crave. You know deep inside that sexuality is meant to be wonderful…but something is holding you back. Fear of rejection. Fear of judgement. Fear of not being enough. Fear of not knowing what to do. Fear of being alone.

I typically utilize CBT , DBT, person centered and solution focused approaches during counseling sessions, but treatment approaches vary according to each individual client's needs.
I believe that making the decision to enter into counseling is admirable. Each individual has unique experiences and unique struggles, but it is important that the individual knows that although the individual is unique, the individual is not alone. A strong therapeutic relationship between a counselor and client helps clients realize they are not alone as they explore their hurt as well as their strengths, and as they find hope. I would be humbled to create a trusting, nonjudgmental, and safe environment for you to heal and grow emotionally and spiritually, and to support you during an unprecedented time.

I blend relational and cognitive behavioral strategies to meet clients where they are.
Many people have questions or concerns about their sexuality, sexual identity, and sexual attractions. They wonder if their lack of desire for their partner can change, how they can feel more comfortable engaging in sex, whether their sexuality is "normal," and what their attractions mean about them. They may feel embarrassed talking to their doctor about erectile problems or sexual pain. As an AASECT certified sex therapist, I work with teens and adults to confront these fears, answer questions, and improve sexual self concept and sexual health.

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.
