As a seasoned therapist with over 30 years of clinical experience, my work is grounded in psychodynamic theory, and incorporates cognitive -behavioral techniques, positive psychology, mindfulness training, and family systems.
My therapy approach is warm, compassionate, and collaborative. In an open and caring environment, an individual's ability to change self-defeating patterns of thoughts and behaviors, increase self-esteem, recognize strengths, and develop healthy relationships is enhanced.

Though I take an overarching relational approach, I use a variety of interventions, including cognitive -behavioral, mindfulness, trauma-informed, DBT, and somatic techniques.
My ideal client may struggle with anxiety, a history of trauma, relationships, or addictive behaviors. Issues that I work with include anxiety, depression, interpersonal difficulties, overcoming a traumatic experience, and/or stopping self-destructive behaviors. Maybe your goal is to engage in social situations without anxiety, increase your self-esteem, not become "triggered" in current relationships, or eat without guilt. Ideal clients are motivated, can accept boundaries, are aware of the on-going work they need to put in between sessions, and are open to the collaborative nature of our work together.

As a trained couples' and family therapist, I use a systemic approach with my clients which emphasizes the development and maintenance of healthy relationships and communication. Evidence-based practices such as cognitive -behavioral and solution focused therapies are examples of the theoretical orientations from which I work. I believe wholeheartedly that change comes from a blend of internal and external factors with a team approach between the therapist and client(s). My philosophy is not to "fix" people, but rather serve as a partner to support my clients toward defining and reaching their expressed personal values and goals.

My style draws primarily from existentialism, CBT & DBT, narrative, positive, and relational psychology, harm reduction, and mindfulness.
Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

I offer a down-to-earth and integrative approach that also includes evidence-based treatments such as EMDR, CBT , and IFS.
You are good at bottling up your pain or minimizing the issues coming up in your life and relationships. In the past, you may have experienced feeling unsafe, hurt, or being without control which all continue to impact you. Even though you are reflective and self-aware, you keep hitting walls when it comes to working towards change. This is both frustrating and exhausting. Yet, you do want things to be different.

We’ll center your child’s interests and use play, art, humor, storytelling, mindfulness, a strength-based approach, and a little Cognitive Behavior Therapy ( CBT ) thrown in to meet your child’s goals.
You see your child struggling. Maybe they (used here as an inclusive, singular pronoun) come home after school, barely say a word, and hide out in their room for the rest of the evening. Or maybe they hold it together all day at school before jumping into your car in the pickup line, and then break down. No matter how it plays out, you’re here because you want something different for your child. Also, you want others to see your child beyond a list of symptoms – anxiety, depression, or their apparent need for a new set of social skills. You want to work with someone who can see the WHOLE person!

I use a strengths-based, trauma-informed, solution-focused approach incorporating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, CBT , DBT, and mindfulness.
Do you feel stuck, disorganized, unsure of yourself? Are you struggling to manage your emotions, lack relationships where you can be fully yourself, find it difficult to see your worth? After turning 18 you might notice you are unprepared for the significance your upbringing has on your daily emotions, stress tolerance, and relationship with yourself and others in adulthood. Instead of a comfortable transition or feeling satisfied, you may find yourself repeating unwanted patterns feeling rushed and unbalanced as an adult. You have tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and now realize you need help from someone else.

EMDR and CBT can create the opportunities for major symptom reduction.
Way to go about taking the first step to start therapy! Life is crazy right now. It's tough to feel any balance. Stressors weigh on you and may even add to your anxiety and depression symptoms. Perhaps you or your child may be struggling and at a loss for what to do. I can support you to find the best strategies to tackle these stressors and get back to balance despite the things we can't change in the world now. I've spent many years working with individuals to navigate their symptoms to work together to make daily life feel back in balance. I have extensive training and experience to treat the whole person with a mindful approach.

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.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Asheville or for an Asheville CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
