I utilize mindfulness and psychotherapeutic techniques such as EMDR, and cognitive behavior therapy.
Working in therapy can be a powerful tool that facilitates perspective, personal insight, healing, and strength. If you are focused on healing and/or seeking personal growth then let's work together. You may be feeling stuck or going through a transition in life in which you need some support and/or guidance. Many of us have a hard time asking for help. Fear, anxiety, shame or needing to be self-sufficient are some feelings that can limit us from recognizing when we need or want support. Sometimes taking the first step can be the most difficult.

I employ mindfulness and meditation as well as parts of CBT , ACT, CPT, somatic therapies and DBT in therapy.
I believe that each of us is a complete person with unique experiences, strengths, characteristics, and opportunities for growth. A life that includes pain, mistakes, betrayal or trauma is not a broken life or one less worthy of love. Everyone goes through times when we can benefit from an ally to walk alongside us, assist us in reaching our goals, or empower us to find our magic. I am honored to have the privilege of my profession and I look forward to the journey with each of my clients.

With children, teens and adults, I use evidence-based, neurobiological, trauma-informed, CBT and psychoanalytic art and verbal approaches, while offering opportunities for connection, compassion, emotional regulation, flexibility, and enhanced personal competency.
In art therapy, we make things together to create a bridge to communication, sometimes staying in the metaphor, and other times using the art product as a jumping off point for verbal discussion. When using narrative therapy, we find new and creative ways to look at old, unproductive stories. We create goals together. I provide the solid, predictable framework and ongoing support, as well as parent coaching. We create opportunities for deep insight, meaningful growth and healthy risk-taking.

My practice is largely grounded in mindfulness-based CBT and I take a gentle approach in challenging self-limiting beliefs.
It is the call of my soul to help individuals remember their value and learn to navigate life as the empowered people they were meant to be. Our sense of self is shaped by our experience and when we lack support or encounter traumatic situations, our self-concept may distort. I will be your greatest champion as we work together to reframe such distortions, enabling you to embody your authentic self. The truth is that within each of us lies a power beyond measure. I want to walk beside you as that power blossoms. Together, we will call forth the strength within you.

My approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR with a variety of other modalities mixed in to achieve the best outcomes.
My area of focus and specialty has been with preteens and adolescents. Through working with teens I inevitably work with their parents and I'm comfortable working with adults as well on their own issues. I can also be a guiding hand to help them improve their parenting skills with a Love and Logic approach. I'm experienced with complicated family systems and truly believe that creating change for a teen requires work from the entire family to help support that change. Teens are malleable and are very capable of change if given the proper support.

Sometimes our life experiences have a way of causing an altered view of ourselves and the world around us. Trauma and grief can also cause us to disconnect from our lives and the people we love, leaving us feeling unsettled, anxious, and lost. My approach to counseling involves creating a safe space for my clients that supports self-exploration, understanding, and personal growth. My strength-based, trauma-informed practice draws primarily from cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness practices, and internal family systems. Together, we can define your goals and values, and explore who you truly are.

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), specifically Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Are you experiencing symptoms of anxiety, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or struggling with a phobia? Perhaps you're having a difficult time sleeping or find yourself worrying about bad things happening or what people think of you? You could be experiencing unwanted thoughts that you are unable to let go of, or fear losing control and something bad happening. You may be struggling to move past something difficult that happened and its taking away from your quality of life. Living with anxiety can be crippling, but with evidenced based treatment, symptoms can improve fairly quickly.

I work with adults, couples and teenagers. My approach is a blend of Family Systems Theory, cognitive behavioral therapy and positive psychology. I believe the quality of our lives is mostly determined by the quality of our relationships, so my work often involved teaching communication skills, resolving conflict and applying the new but vast amount of scientific research about relationships to your own lives. We can't control the events in our lives or our feelings, but we can control our behavior and thoughts. Counseling is learning to do just that. It's educational, inspiring and helpful in so many ways!

My approach is founded on building a strong client/therapist relationship and looking at all facets of one's life to discover opportunities for healing and growth. Particular focus is placed on identifying the false narratives that contribute to suffering and get in the way of our happiness and wellbeing. Mindfulness work, EFT, CBT and especially EMDR can be powerful tools in identifying these narratives and bringing about positive change.

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.
