Wise ones have advised, "Know thyself." My work as a therapist is to assist you to do just that...to help you learn about yourself, but to learn with much more compassion and empathy than you've likely allowed yourself before. Whether you are seeking couple's, individual, or family therapy, I will work with you to understand the issues you name more fully. We will then identify resources, strategies, and tools you can use to address and manage those issues more effectively. I utilize psychodynamic, CBT , EMDR, mindfulness-based, and relational approaches, and attempt to offer a holistic perspective.

A large part of our human “being” is feeling a sense of connection to ourselves, others, and our environment. Life’s journey is filled with periods of harmony and disharmony, sometimes allowing us to flow smoothly and other times leaving us feel stuck. If this sounds familiar, you may want to consider therapeutic support. I am committed to walking alongside you on your journey where I'll do my best to meet you where you are at in life, right now. Together, we can explore a number of factors that may be contributing, leaving you feeling unbalanced or wanting non-judgmental support in this beautiful life that is yours.

Making the choice to start therapy is a difficult one. You’re here because you are making a brave choice and you’re wanting help to break from that feeling of being stuck in one or more areas of your life. You try and form healthier habits and quit the old ones, but for some reason it is not working. You desire relationships that build you up, but more often than not, you find yourself in unhealthy ones, and are left feeling confused and alone. Parenting, school and life feel overwhelming and you are ready for a long lasting change. Good News, you’ve come to the right place !

Are you dealing with a crisis or life event that is causing you distress? Our experiences often affect the way we manage our emotions, perform at work or school, and get along with others. When these experiences are negative, we can get stuck in patterns that prevent us from working up to our potential and enjoying life. I provide a safe, caring and nonjudgmental environment where you can clarify your feelings and develop a plan for action that will start you on your road to recovery.

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.
